Congrats to Darin Brooks for his win as Outstanding Younger Actor and his funny speech! How cute was he with his win and the reaction he had after realizing he made a boo boo?
Brooks became the first Days of Our Lives actor to win Outstanding Younger Actor since Billy Warlock won in 1988. He won out over fellow Days of Our Lives star Blake Berris, All My Children'sCornelius Smith Jr., Guiding Light's EJ Bonilla and 2007 Daytime Emmy Younger Actor winner Bryton James (McClure).
The irony is that One Life to Live'sKristen Alderson and Brandon Buddy–both snubbed of nominations this year–presented the award.
Brooks to star in Spike TV's upcomingBlue Mountain.
