Elizabeth Hendrickson has been nominated for Best Supporting Actress three times for her role as Chloe Mitchell on “The Young and the Restless,” but she has yet to win. The good news for her is that she’s pre-nominated again this year and we think the fourth time will be the charm: she’s the front-runner to win with leading odds of 12/5, based on the combined predictions of hundreds of Gold Derby users. Do you agree that she’s ahead?
Hendrickson was previously nominated in 2012 when she lost to Nancy Lee Grahn (“General Hospital”), and then again in 2014 and 2015 when she was bested by her “Y&R” co-star Amelia Heinle both times. The 2014 race might have been her closest brush with Emmy. Our predictions that year ranked her a close second to Jane Elliot (“GH”) only for both women to be upset by Heinle. On top of that Hendrickson had submitted a highly emotional performance reel from the same storyline that won the show Emmys that year for Best Drama Series, Best Actor (Billy Miller), Best Writing Team, and even Best Supporting Actress for her co-star Heinle. The storyline revolved around the sudden death of Chloe’s daughter Delia in a hit-and-run accident; Miller played Delia’s father, while Heinle played the child’s stepmother.
Hendrickson’s storylines ever since have stemmed from Delia’s death, including her murder of Adam Newman (current “This is Us” star Justin Hartley), the man who had accidentally killed Delia. As Chloe’s crimes were catching up to her she faked her own death in 2017, and her last appearance on the show was last July. So will she now be avenged at the Emmys the way Chloe avenged her daughter’s death? In a close race for Best Supporting Actress she’s backed by 13 of our Top 24 Users who got the highest scores predicting last year’s Daytime Emmy nominations, and by 11 of our All-Star Top 24 who got the highest scores when you combine the last two years’ nominations predictions.
