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.
