The Young and the Restless' Bryton James (Devon) took home a Daytime Emmy last year, winning as Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. James is nominated in the same category this year.

Devon and Elena [Brytni Sarpy] had spent the year before building a new relationship after he’d lost his wife Hilary [Mishael Morgan]. The fans got behind us.
