Daytime Emmys predictions: Top 24 Users say Amelia Heinle (‘Y&R’) will make Supporting Actress history

The Young and the Restless” star Amelia Heinle‘s Daytime Emmy victory last year for Best Supporting Actress came as a surprise to many. This year, she’s the strong favorite to win again according to our Top 24 Users, (the two dozen readers who scored the highest predicting last year’s nominations).

Sixteen of them predict Heinle will prevail. That strong support gives her leading 2/1 odds. It would be a historic victory. She would be the first to win this  race twice in a row, and only the fourth ever to take it two times in total. Best Supporting Actress has the lowest rate of repeats of any acting race at the Daytime Emmys.

But if anyone overtakes her, it might just be another previous category champ: Michelle Stafford, who won Best Supporting Actress in 1997 for “Y&R.” She later won Best Actress for that series in 2004, but this year she’s back down in supporting contending for her new role as Nina Clay on “General Hospital,” which she originated in 2014.

Six of the Top 24 users are predicting Stafford, resulting in odds of 10/3 and placing her second in our Top 24’s collective rankings.

And one of them is betting on Stafford’s “GH” co-star Finola Hughes, who gets 9/2 odds. Hughes previously won Best Actress in 1991 and earned three other nominations in that race for her roles on “GH” and “All My Children,” but she hasn’t been nominated since 2002. She drops down to the supporting race this year to try to rectify that.

The rest of our users agree with the Top 24, giving Heinle field-leading 2/1 odds. But they rank Hughes second with 4/1 odds, just ahead of Stafford, who also has 4/1 odds.

Which group is on the right track?

Last year, our Top 24 Users scored highest when predicting the Daytime Emmy nominations (62.78%), followed by our Editors (60.56%), and Experts and All Users (58.33%). Does that mean we should listen to them again?

  1. Amelia has had a difficult time overcoming the shadow of Heather Tom who is such a vibrant, talented actress who brought some pizzazz to the role. Heinle is more low key. She plays Victoria as Victor’s daughter and not Victor and Nikki’s daughter so much. Nonetheless, Heinle was the most believable, in my opinion, when Delia died and I touted her nomination. I was surprised she beat Liz Hendrickson because Liz’s tapes were so powerful. But Amelia, as the grief-stricken step-mother of slain Delia, really pulled it off and looked the most devastated. Do I think she will win again? No. History tells us that the Academy doesn’t like a lot of repeats in this category (there are currently only 3 with Julia Barr, Gina Tognoni and Nancy Lee Grahn). I think this one belongs to Michelle Stafford who is mind blowing.

  2. I don’t care for the supporting actors or actresses. But, what I want to see is Anthony Geary (Luke Spencer on GH) winning his eight Emmy win. He did an incredible job last year.
