CBS and executive producer Ken Ehrlich revealed that the 65th Emmy Awards ceremony will include not only the normal ‘In Memoriam’ segment but also five special tributes to individuals we’ve lost this year. The 2013 award show’s producers have chosen five people – James Gandolfini, Gary David Goldberg, Cory Monteith, Jean Stapleton and Jonathan Winters – to be honored with special recognition. Friends and co-workers of Gandolfini, Goldberg, Monteith, Stapleton, and Winters will provide personal tributes that will air during the broadcast on September 22, 2013 at 8pm ET/5pm PT.
“The ‘In Memoriam’ is a very emotional and evocative segment for the Emmys, or any annual awards program,” explained Ehrlich. “These five individuals brought us such great entertainment and joy, so having their close friends share personal remembrances is something that will be very meaningful for television audiences across the country and across the generations. And our traditional ‘In Memoriam’ segment will be presented in a unique new format that will give added importance to an already much anticipated segment of the Emmy show.”
The Sopranos‘ Edie Falco will pay tribute to James Gandolfini, Michael J Fox will talk about Family Ties producer Gary David Goldberg, Jane Lynch will represent the Glee cast and honor Cory Monteith, and Rob Reiner will honor the memory of his All in the Family co-star Jean Stapleton. Robin Williams will speak about his friend and mentor Jonathan Winters.
