Plus Anderson Cooper and Billy Eichner score nods
Woo-Hoo! The 40th Daytime Emmy Nominations were announced this morning, and in great news, both Chandler Massey and Freddie Smith are nominated for Outstanding Younger Actor for their roles of Will and Sonny on Days of Our Lives.
Chandler won is this category last year, but this is Freddie’s first nomination. In more DOOL news, the faboo Arianne Zucker received a much-deserved nom for Supporting Actress for her role as Nicole, and matriarch Peggy McKay is nominated for Lead Actress as Caroline.
The show also received a nom for Outstanding Drama Series, and in more … dubious … recognition, for Outstanding Hairstyling and … Costume Design?
Other notable noms include Anderson Cooper for Talk Show Host, Billy Eichner for Game Show Host, and The Ellen Degeneres Show.
The Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards will be presented on June 16th at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, Broadcast Live on HLN
