Primetime Emmy Awards 'In Memoriam' Expanded To Honor Gandolfini, Monteith, Stapleton, Winters & Gary Goldberg

Make sure you’ve got a full box of Kleenex for Sunday’s 2013 Emmy Awards: The telecast will feature expanded “In Memoriam” tributes to five industry powerhouses — James Gandolfini, Cory Monteith, Jean Stapleton, Gary David Goldberg and Jonathan Winters — complete with personal tributes from close friends or coworkers. Gandolfini, Monteith and Stapleton will be remembered by Edie Falco, Jane Lynch and Rob Reiner, their respective costars from The Sopranos, Glee and All in the Family. Michael J. Fox will pay tribute to Family Ties producer Goldberg. And Robin Williams will speak about his friend and mentor Winters, with whom he worked on Mork & Mindy. “The ‘In Memoriam’ is a very emotional and evocative segment for the Emmys, or any annual awards program,” said Executive Producer Ken Ehrlich, in a statement. “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 Emmys air this Sunday at 8/7c on CBS.
