Amelia Heinle won Best Supporting Actress at the 2014 Daytime Emmys for "The Young and the Restless," a victory that came as a surprise to most of our predictors, who had favored either her co-star Elizabeth Hendrickson or Jane Elliot ("General Hospital"). Heinle is pre-nominated again this year, but can she overcome this category's curse against repeat winners? -Break- Predict Daytime Emmys: Repeat for 'Young and Restless,' redemption for 'General Hospital'? Only three women have ever won this award twice: Julia Barr ("All My Children," 1990, 1998), Gina Tognoni ("Guiding Light," 2006, 2008), and Nancy Lee Grahn ("Santa Barbara," 1989; "General Hospital," 2012). None have won it three times, and none have won consecutively. That's not to say winners in this category are doomed. A few others have won as lead actresses after prevailing once in the supporti »
"Days of Our Lives" star Eric Martsolf pulled off an upset victory at the Daytime Emmys in 2014, winning Best Supporting Actor on his first nomination, and he's back on the ballot this year. Can he defend his title? -Break- Daytime Emmys return to TV: Pop Network will broadcast on April 26 Though he was never nominated before last year, the 43-year-old actor is actually one of the elder statesmen in this year's contest. In fact, he's one of only two pre-nominees who never previously competed in the Younger Actor category. "Days" has one other contender on the longlist this year: Blake Berris, who was nominated for Best Younger Actor in 2009. He's hoping for his first bid in the supporting race. But "The Young and the Restless" is the most represented soap on the longlist, with four citations, and three are past Younger Actor-champs. Veteran Kristoff St. John won that category in »
After last year’s digital debacle, the Daytime Emmy Awards ceremony is returning to TV in a deal with Pop, the former TV Guide Network cabler that was relaunched in January.
The 42nd annual Daytime Emmy telecast will originate from a soundstage on the Warner Bros. lot and air live on both coasts on April 26. Michael Levitt, a veteran events producer, will exec produce the broadcast for the New York-based National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, which administers the Daytime Emmys.
As viewership of the telecast has steadily declined, the Daytime Emmy kudocast has bounced around several networks during the past decade, from CBS to ABC to CW to Hln. Last year, producers failed to secure a TV pact so the ceremony from the Beverly Hilton was available only via a free live stream. That resulted in a high-volume of no-shows among winners and salty language flying. Host Kathy Griffin »

With the number of soap operas dwindling in recent years, it's inevitable that the remaining shows will be better represented in the nominations, but even with that in mind, "The Young and the Restless's" recent stranglehold on the Best Actor race at the Daytime Emmys has been remarkable. -Break- Daytime Emmy pre-nominations: 'Young and Restless' leads with 22 There have been nine Best Actor nominees in the last two years, and seven of them were from "Y&R." Perhaps unsurprisingly, "Y&R" also won both years: Doug Davidson in 2013 and Billy Miller in 2014. The only other nominee in both contests was Jason Thompson from "General Hospital." Those two victories put "Y&R" on top as the most awarded program in the category with nine, and if this year's pre-nominations are any indication, "Y&R" may sweep again. It has six out of the 11 actors on the longli...' »
"The Young and the Restless" won nine awards at the 2014 Daytime Emmys, including Best Drama Series. That was its eighth victory in the top category, but it still trails "General Hospital," which holds the record with 11. -Break- If the acting pre-nominations are any indication, "Y&R" may be hard to beat again this year. It earned a whopping 22 citations across six acting categories. That's up from last year, when it tied "Gh" with 19. Daytime Emmy pre-nominations: 'Young and Restless' leads with 22 "Gh," meanwhile, took a tumble down to 14 pre-nominations. The ABC soap is looking for redemption after last year, when it was snubbed from Best Drama Series, Best Writing Team, and Best Directing Team. When it came to the winners, it was the least awarded drama, with just two Creative Arts victories. "Days of Our Lives" is also hoping to make a comeback. After winning Best...' »
Former The Young and the Restless star Victoria Rowell is suing the show's network and producers for racial discrimination - and she's pointing the finger at CBS president Les Moonves. The actress, who joined the popular soap opera in 1990 and played Drucilla Winters (and hasn't been on the series since 2007), claims CBS, Sony Pictures Entertainment, and others conspired to keep her off the air in retaliation for her public criticisms of the show's alleged lack of diversity, according to a lawsuit filed in New York on Wednesday and later posted to Deadline. In court documents, Rowell's attorney asserts the actress »

CBS has given a big promotion to the exec who has steered the success of “The Talk” during the past four years.
Angelica McDaniel, who was most recently senior VP of daytime at CBS, will take on oversight of program development for the CBS Television Distribution syndication unit. The consolidation means that Hilary Estey McLoughlin is out as CBS TV Distribution’s president of creative affairs after less than two years in the post. McLoughlin will segue to a production pact with the Eye.
The move allows CBS to streamline daytime development for the network with the division that fields shows for CBS O&Os as well as non-cbs stations across the country. The move makes sense from an efficiency standpoint at CBS, and it also rewards an exec who is seen as a rising star.
McDaniel will continue to report to CBS Entertainment chairman Nina Tassler for CBS’ network daytime programming, »

Update, Wednesday 4:09 p.m.: CBS has responded to Rowell’s lawsuit, telling TheWrap in a statement that the suit has “no merit” and that they will “vigorously defend” the case. “We were disappointed to learn that, after leaving the cast of “The Young and the Restless” on her own initiative, Ms. Rowell has attempted to rewrite that history through lawyers’ letters and a lawsuit that has no merit. We harbor no ill will toward Ms. Rowell, but we will vigorously defend this case,” CBS said. Previously…. “The Young and the Restless” may be done with Drucilla, but the »

The pre-nominations are out for the 2014 Daytime Emmy Awards, and CBS's top-rated soap "The Young and the Restless" leads with 22 citations in the six acting races, up from 19 last year when it tied with "General Hospital." -Break- This year, "Gh" is far behind with 14. NBC's "Days of Our Lives" has 13 (down just one from 14 last year), while "The Bold and the Beautiful" is actually up one to 10. The longlists in the lead and supporting categories were assembled by panels of peer judges, who watched sample performances from all entrants in each category before narrowing it down to their 10 favorites. (Because of ties, there are 11 pre-nominees for Lead Actor and Supporting Actress.) The pre-nominees, along with the younger performer rosters, now advance to the blue-ribbon round, where beginning on Feb. 25, panels will determine the final nominees, to be announced March 26, as well as the winners.

The Drama Performer pre-nominations for the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards were announced Wednesday by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in cooperation with The Television Academy. “The Young and the Restless,” starring Eric Braeden (above right), led with 21 pre-nominations. Also noteworthy is the pre-nomination for “Days of our Lives” star Alison Sweeney (left), who has left the series.
Registered and eligible peer judges selected their top 10 performers in each of four categories – lead actor and actress and supporting actor and actress – after viewing clips of each performer in each category. Due to exact ties in voting, there are 11 pre-nominations in the Lead Actor and Supporting Actress category.
Pre-nominees with the highest numbers of votes will move onto the blue ribbon screening round, scheduled to begin on Feb. 24, which will determine final nominees and winners. All pre-nominees for younger actor and younger actress automatically move into the blue screening round. »

Members of SAG-AFTRA have ratified a three-years-plus successor deal to its master contract covering non-primetime TV work.
The vote in favor of the deal was 96.5% of ballots cast and follows the SAG-AFTRA national board’s recommendation in December that members vote for the deal with ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox. Ballots were mailed to approximately 132,000 members.
The term of the contract — officially, the National Code of Fair Practice for Network Television Broadcasting (Network Television Code) — runs retroactively from Nov. 16 to June 30, 2018.
“I congratulate our members on ratifying this excellent agreement,” said SAG-AFTRA president Ken Howard. “Our members will benefit from increased wages and overtime rates, expanded residuals and stronger protections. No matter the platform or type of work, SAG-AFTRA members working under this contract can be proud of the solid gains we achieved.”
The deal, reached Nov. 14, covers most non-primetime TV work and about $200 million in annual earnings for members. »

Members of SAG-AFTRA have voted overwhelmingly to ratify a new Network Television Code agreement covering nonprimetime shows on the Big 4 networks. The new three-year pact — which runs through June 30, 2018 — was approved by 96.5% of the members who cast ballots, though the union, as is its custom, would not say how many members actually voted. SAG-AFTRA President Ken Howard has called the new agreement, which the guild’s board approved in December, “a terrific deal” that achieved “significant gains.”
“I congratulate our members on ratifying this excellent agreement,” Howard, who chaired the negotiating committee, said in a statement tonight. “Our members will benefit from increased wages and overtime rates, expanded residuals and stronger protections. No matter the platform or type of work, SAG-AFTRA members working under this contract can be proud of the solid gains we achieved.”
