This coming Friday, June 26, 2020, the soap world welcomes The Daytime Emmys back to broadcast television as CBS will air the ceremony in a most unusual way. Stars will accept their nominations from home in a virtual event due to the coronavirus. Now, CBS soaps are sharing Emmy highlights from its nominees and The Young and the Restless’s Mark Grossman, nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama Series.
Mark Grossman Nominated For A Daytime Emmy
The actor has certainly made a splash in his first daytime role, having joined YR only in 2019 and already has landed his first nomination. The role of Adam Newman has always been a popular one, and he was stepping into some very big shoes and immediately was embraced by his peers and his fans.
Adam had a lot to deal with this past year after trying to kill his father and thinking he had tried to kill him — all the while just looking for love and respect. Below is a look at the material he’s submitted to the Academy.

The Young and the Restless History
YR made its debut in 1973 and introduced more sexual undertones and younger characters to daytime soap operas. It has outlasted other soaps to become a mainstay for many households. Needless to say, four decades of storylines have kept viewers locked in and wanting more.
From Victor Newman’s (Eric Braeden) family machinations to Paul Williams’ (Doug Davidson) heroism to the adorable love story of Kyle (Michael Mealor) and Lola (Sasha Calle), YR knows how to entertain and keep fans coming back for more. Sadly, times are shifting and daytime soap operas are shrinking.
Bringing the Drama
It is one of only four remaining soap operas currently on the air. The other three daytime dramas include General Hospital (GH), Days of our Lives (DAYS), and The Bold and the Beautiful (BB). YR airs weekdays on CBS. Check your local listings for air times.
