CBS ‘The Young and the Restless’ Spoilers: 2020 Daytime Emmy Awards – Jason Thompson Says He Found Out About His Nomination While Watching The Bubble Guppies

CBS ‘The Young and the Restless’ (Y&R) spoilers indicate that star Jason Thompson has opened up about the moment he found out he was nominated for an Outstanding Lead Actor award at this year’s virtual Daytime Emmy ceremony. Here’s what he has to say.

Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, the handsome actor recalled, “We went out to Malibu early that morning, and running around on the beach with the kids [the nominations] wasn’t in my headspace at all. I was taking a couple of pictures of them and my phone was buzzing. I got good news and I was super excited about it. I told my kids, ‘Hey, guys, daddy just got nominated for an Emmy.’ Bowie asked, ‘What’s an Emmy?’ I was like, ‘It’s an award. You know what? Dino Dana and Bubble Guppies got nominated for an Emmy, too.’ So he was pretty stoked once he heard his two favorite shows were nominated as well. It was a nice surprise. It feels good.”

Jason also says that he’s onboard for the virtual ceremony this year, as he believes that the daytime television community should still adhere to all social distancing guidelines to help stop the spread of the novel Covid-19 virus.

The actor added, “It makes sense. I’m glad we are doing that. I think right now you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do for the greater good and if this is what we can do and hopefully give people some entertainment, I’m all into it. Why not? It’s been an interesting time, why not keep it interesting?”
