Daytime Emmys 2019: And the winners are...
The Young and the Restless, Valerie Bertinelli and Alex Trebek were the big winners at the 46th Annual Daytime Emmys, held Sunday at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, CA. The ceremony no longer airs on television so The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences streamed the ceremony via Twitter and Facebook.
“Kristoff, this is for you baby!” yelled presenter Shemar Moore (S.W.A.T.) before announcing that his old sudser The Young and the Restless was the recipient of the Outstanding Drama Series. Moore was referring to the late Kristoff St. John, the beloved Y&R actor who died in February. The actor’s passing played heavily throughout the Emmy ceremony — if not during the in memoriam segment, then whenever his former co-stars took the stage to give away an Emmy.
Before presenting the final award of the night, Moore quoted Y&R actor Bryton James by saying St. John “was the Denzel of daytime TV.” His comment was met with a massive round of applause.
