Josh was so excited about winning, that instead of going to the stage to accept his award and make his speech, he first ran to the opposite direction, to his mom, who was awaiting him with open arms in the rear of the theater. Josh was really happy to win the award, and said he's glad to finally win something when in contest with Cameron, as the latter always wins in their weekly golf contests! Josh's excitement was especially big about recieving the award from Melody, as he grew up watching Y&R with his mom! The excitement of the moment was shown, as tears streamed down his face.
