Chandler Massey gets nod for performance as gay teen on Days of Our Lives; Ellen DeGeneres Show gets 12 nods but not one for its host

Chandler Massey, who portrays gay teen Will Horton on the NBC soap Days of Our Lives, was among those to receive a Daytime Emmy Award nomination which were announced Wednesday (9 May) morning.

Although it has been in recent months that Will has had his most dramatic scenes - including his first kiss with another man, coming out to himself then his grandmother and best friend - the nomination is for scenes that aired last September.

Massey tells Gay Star News: 'I feel great, it was good news. It’s such an honor to be nominated and it is much appreciated.'
