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.”

'All in the Family' Star Jean Stapleton: Dead at 90

All in the Family actress Jean Stapleton has died of natural causes at the age of 90.

The beloved actress, who played the lovable Edith Bunker on the classic CBS sitcom, passed away on Saturday (June 1) at her home in New York.

Jean didn’t reach stardom until she was nearly 50 years old and she won three Emmy Awards for her work on All in the Family, which she appeared on from 1971 to 1980. She then moved on to the spinoff Archie Bunker’s Place as a regular for one season.

We send our condolences to Jean‘s friends and family during this difficult time.
