CBS.com: How does it feel to be a first time nominee?

EJ BONILLA: I’m really excited. When I first got to this show, I remember talking to my mentor and he tried to teach me that where you go you should leave a mark and if you haven’t left a mark you may not have left with all you could from that place. So when I got to Guiding Light I was like, ‘I’m going to win an Emmy.’ Just this nomination I feel I really did get something from being on the show. I really did do something; it makes me feel good.
