Younger actor.

"DOOL" scored two nominations in the Younger Actor category for this year's Daytime Emmy Awards. Freddie Smith (Sonny) and last year's winner Chandler Massey (Will) both received nods for their work.

In the reel Smith put forward, he discuses Will's issues with being gay before having an advice filled chat with Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

In Chandler Massey's reel, he broke away from kissing Neil (Jeese Kristoferson) and told Sonny that he must have just been drunk. Sonny doubted that. Will ran off to see his grandmother, Marlena (Deidre Hall), and finally confessed to her that he thinks he was gay.
