Emmys In Memoriam 2013 Details: Cory Monteith & More

One of the most anticipated moments of the night at the 2013 Emmy Awards this evening will be the In Memoriam segment and we have all the details right here.

Five people will be remembered with special recognition during the ceremony: Glee‘s Cory Monteith (remembered by co-star Jane Lynch), The SopranosJames Gandolfini (remembered by co-star Edie Falco), All in the Family‘s Jean Stapleton (remembered by co-star Rob Reiner), Mork and Mindy‘s Jonathan Winters (remembered by co-star Robin Williams), and Family Ties producer Gary David Goldberg (remembered by the show’s Michael J. Fox).

“I always find the In Memoriam is just really interesting because sometimes it seems weird that they keep the audio on in the house, so some people get applause and some people don’t, and it turns it into this weird moment,” host Neil Patrick Harris told Access Hollywood. “And you want that moment to be honoring those people, and not a competition.”

“We’ve come up with this idea — five different people that we chose sort of from different areas of television are being spoken about by people who were important to them,” he explained. “[They'll speak about them] not in a pitying way, but I think in a respectful, classy way that will make you remember their life in a positive, forward-momentum kind of style.”

Check back later for video of the segment!

    Cory’s death was sad and tragic. But he should not be singled out. Years from not people will be shaking their heads at his inclusion. Look at these actors he is pictured with. There is nothing in his career that measures to these Iconic people. Each of these actor are Iconic..they were people that made a mark. The characters they created inspired others.

    Cory is a nice guy that made a bad choice that cost him his life. His fans I’m sure think this appropriate, but it is not. There are situations that should not be done to pump up ratings or appease fans.

  • Hello

    @NO..Just NO: I agree. His acting was rather stale and he never got nominated. James Gandolfini was an ICON in the industry, however.

  • Wurry

    J.R Ewing????? !

  • Shame

    Shame shame shame. Honoring a drug addict over icons like Larry Hagman and Jack Klugman. And alongside the wonderful Jean Stapleton. SHAME.

  • Ha

    Yeah, though I have nothing against Cory, he does absolutely not deserve this.

    Agreed, not watching the show because they did not honor Jack Klugman or Larry Hagman,. The Oscars seen to do a pretty good memoriam of the people who have passed, although it is only a fleeting glance it is better than nothing. And they do give out a few tributes.

  • So Sad

    It is so sad how much programming time was given as a memorial to a new actor/addict. I believe that the real purpose for this memorial was just a cheap hype for the show Cory was on and another chance for Jane Lynch to get air time. I wish the Emmy’s would have used the air time wasted for Cory Montelth on the Iconic actor’s & actresses who passed away this year. They deserved more respect than to have their photo’s scanned through between commercials. It went by so quickly I wasn’t able to absorb all who are no longer with us.

    @NO..Just NO:
    I completely agree.
    Where is Jack Klugman’s special memorial?
    Where is Larry Hagman’s special memorial?
    And quite a few other greats that have died this year!

    Cory, was a dumb kid, who was given the chance of a lifetime and he threw it away. Not exactly a role model to be singled out!

    I heard a fairly lengthy radio interview with him once and he came across as polite and humble; that’s nice, but doesn’t warrant the huge accolades that are being heaped upon him.

    I am sorry, but that’s just how it is.
