Though “The Young and the Restless’” Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea Newman) has been nominated for four Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series Emmy awards in the past, this fifth nomination isn’t any less special. In fact, she says it’s always an honor to be recognized for hard work. “It’s always so thrilling, and it’s always an exciting, pleasant, flattering thing,” she enthuses. “I’ve gotten texts and emails and Facebook messages, and it really is so, so lovely. You really feel like it’s your birthday but even more so. Everybody professionally and personally comes out. And it’s so, so heartwarming.”
With over 20 years of daytime experience, you’d think that Amelia Heinle (Victoria Newman, “The Young and the Restless”) would have already been nominated at least once for a Daytime Emmy Award, but shockingly enough, this year’s nomination marks the first for the actress! And she says it’s all due to the incredibly emotional Delia’s death storyline she and her “Y&R” counterparts were given this year. “I don’t always put myself in the running, because I don’t always have [strong material to submit]... but this year, I just thought, you know, I’m just going to put myself in there, so it feels really good, because my instincts, I guess, were right!” she says, adding that the impact of the storyline was felt by everybody right from the beginning. “The first day of shooting the Delia stuff, after she died, this weird sort of camaraderie came over all of us. I don’t think we anticipated the magnitude of how heavy it would be, because sometimes you get a storyline that’s really heavy and nobody is into it and nobody can play it, and it’s like, ‘Ugh, this isn’t really working.’ But that day, it meant something to everybody. It almost felt like [the death] really happened. It was surreal, because it was the first time I’ve ever experienced this in all of my years of daytime, where the storyline actually felt pretty real.”
After her daughter died last year as a result of a hit-and-run, a desperate Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) will attempt everything in her power to have another child with Billy Abbott (David Tom), even going so far as to drug and "seduce" the married man into having sex with her. The question is, is it a "sinful seduction" or an outright rape? In a newly released promo for next week's episodes of CBS' "The Young and the Restless," the series calls what Chloe is doing to get her hands on Billy's crown jewels (pun intended) as a sinful seduction, but visually it's clear that Billy isn't even conscious for Chloe's plan. Meanwhile, Billy is also unknowingly already dealing with another set of baby drama. It turns out that his wife, Victoria (Amelia Heinle), is pregnant! The only problem is that it could be Billy's, or it could be Stitch's (Sean Carrigan). As for Ian Ward (Ray Wise), he better not get in the way of his son Dylan (Steve Burton) when it comes to the woman he loves, or he'll end up paying the ultimate price.

On Friday, March 28, "CBS Sunday Morning" correspondent Mo Rocca was on hand to film scenes alongside "The Young and the Restless" actresses Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki Newman) and Amelia Heinle (Victor Newman) for an upcoming appearance on daytime TV's top rated drama series.

Earlier today the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, in cooperation with the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, announced the Drama Performer Pre-Nominations for this year's Daytime Emmy Awards.
“The Young and the Restless” viewers weren’t exactly thrilled when popular actor Billy Miller announced that he would be exiting the role of Billy Abbott, but the rough waters were mostly calmed when former portrayer David Tom (brother of “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Heather Tom [Katie Logan]) swooped in to take back the role. It’s been a fairly smooth transition for most viewers, but jumping into the middle of such an intense storyline — the death of Delia and having been outed for cheating on Victoria (Amelia Heinle) —was a bit of an adjustment for the actor!
