ALL THINGS RELATED

“The Young and the Restless’” Amelia Heinle (Victoria Newman) is celebrating her first ever Emmy nomination as well as an exciting storyline involving Sean Carrigan’s Stitch, but that didn’t prevent her from opening up about a slew of other topics when reporters chatted with the actress shortly after she received the news that she’d officially be in this year’s Emmy race. The actress had no qualms about discussing the emotional year “Y&R” has experienced, what it was like working with Billy Miller (ex-Billy Abbott), her obsession with Tristan Rogers (Colin Atkinson) and more.
Just as the long memorial day holiday weekend was getting ready to begin word broke that "The Young and the Restless" was recasting the role of Billy Abbott. According to Daytime Confidential, "Y&R" has decided to go in a different direction with the character and has let David Tom go. He is being replaced by actor Burgess Jenkins.
Today, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences officially announced the nominees of the 41st annual Daytime Emmy Awards! The list of pre-noms in the categories for Outstanding Drama Series, Lead Actor and Actress, Supporting Actor and Actress, Younger Actor and Actress and more was whittled down to just a few final contenders who will compete for the coveted National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Emmy award statuettes during the event that will be taking place on Sunday, June 22. Read on for the official list of nominees in the major categories!
During the final minutes of ABC's "Good Morning America," the morning show revealed selected nominees for the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards," which remains without a TV home despite being scheduled to take place on Sunday, June 22 live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel. According to David Michaels, Senior Executive Director and Co-Executive Producer of the awards show, however, The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences does plan to stream the ceremony online if no TV deal can be made for this year.
Yesterday, Soap Opera Network featured a Center Stage interview with “The Young and the Restless’” Joshua Morrow (Nicholas Newman) detailing his new film, “Tentacle 8,” which is out on DVD in select stores and on Amazon now. But as promised, we also got the star to open up about all of his “Y&R” drama, too! Read on to get the actor’s take on Sharon’s (Sharon Case) paternity lies, Victor’s (Eric Braeden) machinations, the search for Adam and the recent departure of some of the sudser’s most popular stars!
Anyone who’s been watching “The Young and the Restless” as of late knows that Nicholas Newman’s life is about to be blown to smithereens. Not only has his father been tricking the love of his life into thinking she’s been seeing and speaking with her dead daughter, he’s on the verge of finding out that the very same woman he loves has been lying to him about the true paternity of his daughter! The drama is all pretty typical for Nick’s portrayer, Joshua Morrow — who’s been dealing with twisted Genoa City plots for nearly 20 years — but the drama he faces in his latest stint in the political drama thriller ‘Tentacle 8?’ Not so much! Soap Opera Network spoke with the actor about momentarily stepping away from his ‘Y&R’ craziness to film the exciting project, which is available on DVD in stores and on Amazon today. And we also got him to spill on all of the Victor (Eric Braeden), Sharon (Sharon Case) and Adam (formerly Michael Muhney) drama, too!
“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!
Now that Billy Miller has played out his final scenes as “The Young and the Restless’” Billy Abbott (in a gripping finale in which both he and Michael Muhney’s Adam Newman careened off an icy road after a dramatic showdown regarding the hit and run death of Delia), former portrayer David Tom has stepped back into the role of Victoria’s (Amelia Heinle) hubby. Meanwhile, viewers were shocked to see Marco Dapper return as the very-much-alive Carmine Basco on Friday, January 31! So how did the returns of both actors rate?
