On top of the In Memoriam montage, the Emmys sprinkled in a few special tributes to those who went off to heaven throughout the year. It was weird. The show was LAUGHS LAUGHS LIGHT LAUGHS and then all of a sudden they’d throw in these serious moments when we were supposed to put our black lace veils over our faces and switch to red wine. Cory Monteith got a special tribute from Jane Lynch, which pissed off Jack Klugman’s son, because he thought his father should’ve gotten a special tribute instead.
It was a nice tribute, but I was kind of sad that Larry Hagman’s ethereal angel wing brows didn’t get their own tribute too.
