about the Emmy Nomination at CBS.com
CBS.com: Congratulations on your Emmy
TRENT DAWSON: Thank you. It makes people happy. It makes people here [at
ATWT] happy; it makes my family happy. Thatís the [most] fun, I think, their
excitement. Iíve never been married, but itís like, the wedding day is about
everyone else but the married couple? [Laughs] Itís kind of like that. I mean,
Iím thrilled, but I think the best part is that everyone else is happy.
CBS.com: Where were you when you found out that you had been nominated?
TRENT DAWSON: I was in transit and then I got here at the studio and they
had already announced my name. I had forgotten [the announcements were] supposed
to happen. Someone came down and they told me. So, it was cool.
CBS.com: Who is the first person you called when you found out?
TRENT DAWSON: The funny thing about that is, I found out that day that my
cell phone had corrosion damage and I couldnít use it. So, all these people
are calling me and I couldnít recharge it or use it. I think it was more about
me catching up on my messages once I figured that out.
CBS.com: Have you given any thought to your wardrobe on Emmy night?
TRENT DAWSON: I donít know! I have no idea. Iím going to let someone
else decide that. Iíve always let the wardrobe department do something cool. I
donít know if thereís a difference this year because of the nomination or
what. Who knows? Maybe Iíll go shopping. Iím take some extra eyes, because
Iím not good at that sort of thing.
CBS.com: Do you have a good luck charm?
TRENT DAWSON: No, I donít.
CBS.com: How do you think the Emmys will be different this year, since
they are being held in L.A. and not N.Y.?
TRENT DAWSON: Well, for one thing, I live about 5 blocks from Rockefeller
Center, so I wonít be able to roll out of my bed and just stroll to [the
show]. And just walk home from the Emmys. Thatís always been fun. Iíve been
talking to some people out there and the kind of experience it will be. Iíve
only been out to L.A. a couple of times; Iím not that familiar with it. So,
itís an adventure.
