Melody Thomas Scott’s 40th Anniversary With The Young and the Restless Celebration (Photos)

This has been an event-filled and exciting week for The Young and the Restless Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki Newman).  On Wednesday February 20th, the day of her 40th anniversary with the series, Y&R hosted a very special gathering in her honor at Y&R’s soundstage 41 at CBS Television City.

As far as milestone events go, this one was one of the most highly-attended and high-profile one in recent memory.  Not only were many of Melody’s castmates present, but also many former ones, dear friends,  family (even some of her adorable young grandchildren), executives, press. and other actresses from the genre, who all came to honor Melody on this remarkable accomplishment – playing a lead character for 40 years on a daytime drama series.

The celebration was filled with emotional and humorous stories and moments from the speakers: Eric Braeden (Victor), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Joshua Morrow (Nick), who read a poem he wrote instead of a rap he might have done – all representing the Newman clan. Another speaker was Peter Bergman (Jack), representing the Abbott clan, and one of Melody’s enduring scene-partners and co-stars.  Christian LeBlanc (Michael) introduced the speakers and the clip package honoring the iconic Y&R star.

Sony executive, Steve Kent, CBS Daytime executive, Angelica McDaniel, and Brad Bell, head writer and EP of The Bold and the Beautiful, who spoke on behalf of the Bell family, also saluted Melody.  In addition, Melody’s longtime husband, producer Ed Scott, surprised Melody by speaking and introducing one of their dear friends to those in attendance who spoke to the realness of Melody.

When she finally addressed those in attendances after their kudos, Melody gave many special shout-outs and was quite emotional when speaking of her early childhood and how Y&R has become a family to her and a place where she belonged.

Later, photos were taken with the exquisite cake which was in the form of crossword puzzle, Melody’s idea, and executed by the talented folks at the Hansen’s Bakery.

Michael Fairman TV was present at the proceedings and will have a follow-up feature with thoughts from many of the casts on Melody’s accomplishment in the days to come.  For now, take a look at some of the images from the event with our captions in the photo gallery below.

48th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards: Photo Gallery and Acceptance Speeches

Last night on the 48th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards on CBS and streamed on Paramount+, viewers watched a hybrid-broadcast for the annual kudofest as the world is coming out of the coronavirus pandemic.

While the acceptance speeches, and presenters were pre-taped along with the previously seen red carpet footage, no one knew who the winners were till last night, because all of the nominees taped a speech.  The virtual ceremony combined remote presentations and remembrances, with host, Sheryl Underwood presiding over the ceremony on a soundstage and introducing presenters to the stage, as well.

Adam Sharp, President & CEO, NATAS said of the event on Friday night: “We honor the Daytime community for helping us find our way through the turbulence of the pandemic, increased racial unrest and the chaos of the presidential election as America faced one of its most trying years in our history. This evening celebrated not only the best programming and performances of this year but reflected on some of Daytime’s biggest icons that have left an indelible mark on our medium.”

Streaming service Netflix was actually the evening’s big overall winner with seven Emmys. NATAS had called this production and event a “transition” event after shooting much of it on a set, as they look to bring back the live event feel for next year, since the broadcast had already received a two-year commitment from CBS.

While the late Alex Trebek and Larry King were remembered and also won awards posthumously, Regis Philbin was also honored by his longtime co-host, Kathy Lee Gifford.  Then, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Diamond White (Paris) performed a song during the In-Memoriam segment.

You can check out some of the acceptance speeches from Daytime Drama winners: Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy, B&B) Maurice Benard (Sonny, GH), Max Gail (Ex-Mike, GH), Marla Adams (Ex-Dina, Y&R), and Frank Valentini (EP, GH) below our photo gallery of some of the backstage moments that were captured during portions of the pre-taped ceremony.

DAYS rolled out the red carpet for this one complete with many extras, a huge church gathering, quite the wedding dress for Victoria Konefal to wear, and emotional performances by the on-screen bride and groom.

Shortly after Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) pronounced the two, husband and wife, and as Ben is waiting for his bride to begin their lives as newlyweds together, … as she approaches him in the vestibule of the church, a bomb goes off, and Ben is caught in the explosion.
