While fans of The Young and the Restless mourn the loss of daytime drama’s beloved Kristoff St. John (Neil Winters), the series and CBS Daytime announced Thursday evening that although there will be a tribute to St. John, who passed away on Sunday, at the end of tomorrow’s episode, that it is only the beginning and that viewers should stay tuned.

In a statement, the number one daytime drama expressed; “The Young and the Restless will forever value the legacy of Kristoff St. John in his portrayal of Neil Winters.  Beginning in late April, Y&R will feature a storyline that pays tribute to both Kristoff and his character.”

Over the days since St. John’s tragic death, fans of the series have wondered what the show planned to do with the character since St. John had played the character for 27 years.   Looks like we will all find out together this spring, as the writing team pens a story that honors Neil Winters and his two-time Daytime Emmy-winning portrayer.

So, glad to hear that Y&R is planning a storyline  to pay their respects to Neil Winters and Kristoff ?

Share your thoughts via the comment section below, and make sure to catch The Young and the Restless on Friday (12:30-1:30 PM, ET and 11:30 AM-12:30 PM, PT).

The actor and the character deserves a great memorial, like the one they did for Jeanne Cooper and Katherine in 2013.

A final scene with Victoria Rowell welcoming Neil in heaven, like the one Cady McClain did when James Mitchell died, would be a perfect ending.

I agree with you Linda. I have been a fan since the mid eighties and Neil and Drucilla have always been my favorite couple. I was so shocked and saddened when I heard the news. He was such a terrific actor. When I saw the “tribute” after Friday’s episode, I thought this is it. I hope the one they give him in April is more deserving to his role and his dedication to the show.

Am glad to see and to hear all this appreciation of Kristoff St. John. It is so well deserved and appropriate. The New York Times this week featured two articles, including an appreciation piece, I thought were spot on. As for Neil Winters, I am eager to see what happens. I do want the character to continue as the Neil is vital for Lily, Devon, and without Dru, Olivia, and Malcolm on canvas, provides a link to the past that is so necessary. He is another ex-wife and son out there too. Although I could see the passing of Neil… Read more »

Thank you for noting The New York Times Appraisal of Mr. St. John. Yes, indeed, it was “spot-on.”

Hopefully Olivia and Malcolm will turn up . Along with Dru, they re time with Neil was classic Winters era. Without them any tribute wont feel the same. Hoping Devon and Anna can carry the Winters torch. Not sure about Nate. Hoping Lily returns aswell fulltime

I have read several negative comments about the tribute at the end of Friday’s show. “Y&R” honored Kristoff at the end of Wednesday’s show and then the two-minute tribute today. First, it is tough for the show – it’s actors, writers, crew and audience – to lose someone so beloved. But these shows are taped months in advance and it is difficult to take a pre-taped show and turn it into a hour-long tribute within a week. I am sure it is still very raw for the actors to think his physical presence will not be there on a daily… Read more »

I’m in shock because I’ve been loyal fan of YR since 1973 but with Mal Young at helm I quit watching about 6 months ago. I’m reeling from this news, rest in peace. CBS & Sony needs to do the right thing and give the fans what we all been clamoring for return of Drucilla and in tow a child son of Neil.

The tribute at the end of yesterday’s show was very disappointing, so I am glad to hear there will be more to come. Been watching Y&R since day 1 and St. John was a terrific addition to the show, so sorry he is gone, may he RIP.
I do hope he will not be replaced as he cannot.

Daytime Emmys To Remain Virtual For Upcoming 2021 Ceremony

With an uncertain situation of when live events can get back to normal, or as they have been in the past prior to the coronavirus pandemic, The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced today that it plans on keeping next year’s Daytime Emmys award show virtual, to allow for the 2022 awards cycle to stay on track.

In fact, all of NATAS’s award ceremonies including: the News and Documentary Emmys, Technology & Engineering Emmys and the Sports Emmys will also remain virtual next year.

The Daytime Emmys became the first major award show to air a virtual presentation that others followed back in late June of this year and aired on CBS.

In a statement, NATAS chairman and CEO Adam Sharp expressed on the organization’s decision:“The current timetables articulated by manufacturers project mass availability of vaccinations for the entire U.S. population by mid-summer 2021, potentially permitting a return to more traditional in-person ceremonies later in the fall. However, we have determined that delaying our 2021 events to possibly allow for a compressed calendar of in-person Emmy ceremonies late in the year would result in unacceptable delays to our awards cycle for 2022. Instead, we have decided to remain “virtual” in the format of our ceremonies for 2021 while relying on a substantially pre-COVID awards calendar. In so doing, we believe we will be best-positioned to return to a full, on-time, traditional schedule of in-person ceremonies in 2022.

The dates currently under consideration for the 48th annual Daytime Emmys which would be via two or three nights of presentations are: a combination of dates from Friday, June 25, Saturday, July 17 and/or Sunday, July 18.

For those entering the competition, the entry deadline is February, 17, 2021 with  the nominations not to come till May or June.

So, what do you think about the Daytime Emmys going virtual again for 2021? Comment below.
