Van Hansis on Facebook

"the rumors are true, i did not submit myself for an emmy this year.

"it was something that i thought about for a while, and if i thought it would truly benefit my career in a way that my previous nominations have not, i would have. the daytime world seems very insular within the industry as a whole, and im not sure getting another nomination, or even winning one, would open any doors to me that havent already been opened.

"yeah, i was just kind of following my heart, i gave my brain permission to intercede and my brain was like "yeah, hearts right on this one." for me the recognition that is most important is in booking the job, the response from those you work with on said job, and the response from those watching said job. in all of those i feel very recognized. thats the important thing.

"thank you all for saying how much i deserve that award. that is wonderful and kind and it melts my cold cold heart. but this year, what it came down to for me was how much did I want it, and i know 'i could have been a contender'(raging bull, 1980, bet im the first soap actor to reference that!?! ) i realized i didnt want it that much to go through the hoopla that comes along with it. i only ever wanted to win to tell my parents how much their support meant to me. and i did, privately, and it was awsome."

Mind if I copy these to post at vanhansis? Or do you want to post it? I was going to screencap his posts, but this would be much easier. :)

Although I would have loooved him see win an emmy I gotta say I have a huge respect for the man who dares to ride his own course. He is follwing his heart and deciding his head agreed. It takes guts to do the exect opposite everybody expects you to.

even if i didn't know who he was I would have won my respect immediatly...
chapeau mr. hansis...
