The 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards veered from the usual In Memoriam segment to single out five TV stars with extended tributes, including Jonathan Winters, Cory Monteith and James Gandolfini.
There was some controversy over the inclusion of “Glee” star Cory Monteith, who died July 13 of an accidental overdose. Monteith took the place of veteran stars who died last year, like actors Jack Klugman and Larry Hagman.
Gandolfini stars opposite Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Toni Collette and Catherine Keener in the comedy about a divorced massage therapist (Louis-Dreyfus) who takes a chance on love with a new man (Gandolfini) -- who just happens to be the dreaded ex of her new client.
