Soaps.com then interviewed Hunter King, (Summer, â€œY&Râ€) who didnâ€™t know at this point that she was about to become a first time Emmy winner. The actress was wearing a black gown with rhinestone detailing from designer, Forever Unique. King was with co-star, Matthew Atkinson (Austin) who made jokes about buying a tux from a homeless man on the street. King detailed what she had for breakfast (a bagel) and says she prepared in the hotel. The actress was really excited that Billy Miller (Billy) and Peter Bergman (Jack) and Amelia Heinle (Victoria) were nominated. They fawned over how young Bergman looks.
Kelli Goss (Courtney, â€œY&Râ€) She was more dressed up than when we saw her Friday, wearing Australian designer, Bariano, in an orange mermaid style gown, a BCBG Generation handbag, and Marrin Costello rings. Goss talked about the excitement in the air, stating, â€œI think everyoneâ€™s just more excited than they are nervous. Most people who have been here have been here 12 years or something. I still get excited and nervous. Itâ€™s only my second one and Iâ€™m not used to it.â€ Soaps.com reporter Kristyn Burtt asked what she learned last year that sheâ€™s not going to do this year and Goss says, â€œI think you can spot our table from a mile away because all the tables around us were missing their champagne bottles. [laughter] So that may be something I have to suggest to our table again.â€ Otherwise, â€œYou get here a little earlier.â€ Goss says, â€œWe actually got a new set where it is very summer themed which requires less clothing so thereâ€™s always a little romance going on of course when that happens. Thatâ€™s something everyoneâ€™s looking forward to but itâ€™s a little nerve-racking for us.â€
Kate Linder (Esther, â€œY&Râ€) showed up wearing a contrasting silver and white Kathryn Hynes gown. This is a favorite designer of the actress and the designerâ€™s Washington based. In fact, the designer sends Linder a dress each year without Linder even seeing it. To prepare, Linder says she went to the gym and had her hair and make-up done but admits, â€œNo matter how long I take, at the end Iâ€™m always rushing.â€ Burtt commented on her 32nd year in soaps and asked what that means to her. Linder says itâ€™s hard to believe. â€œI started on the show and it was only supposed to be for one day. Here I am 32 years later. Iâ€™m always just so blown away and so grateful, and so honored. Here I am doing what I love to do and on the number one show is just the icing on the cake.â€ She had nothing but positive comments to say.
Mishael Morgan (Hilary, â€œY&Râ€) wore Canadian designer Dalia Mac Phee's deep pink strapless pleated bodice gown. Her jewellery was Michael J Jewelry. Morgan says she came early for the gifting suite and then felt rushed to prepare. â€œI love pressure,â€ she says and she calmed herself down. She picked up a Spiderman night light for her nephew that she and Burtt agree heâ€™ll die for. â€œEverybodyâ€™s just been working hard and weâ€™re like a family and just keep the show going.â€ She talks about going to the Emmys to shine. She teases about â€œa lot of great scenes in the future that Iâ€™m really excited about.â€ Sheâ€™s talking about the Neil and Devon triangle.
Daniel Polo (â€œY&Râ€™sâ€ ex- Jamie) sidled up to us. Soaps.com interviewed him Friday night during the nominee reception. He was nervous Friday night and when we asked how he was he said, â€œJust as nervous if not more so.â€ He says he did jumping jacks this morning. â€œFirst time I exercised in my entire life.â€ He says if he wins heâ€™ll make room for his statue, though he hasnâ€™t thought of where yet. Outside of â€œY&Râ€ the actor teases that heâ€™ll guest spot on â€œThe Bridge.â€ He has other things on the go but nothing he can discuss.
