    Default Cory Monteith gets an Emmy memorial....Jack Klugman and Larry Hagman do not

    how could it possibly be that the actor who gave us Oscar and Quincy not to mention memorable turns in 12 angry men and the Days of Wine and Roses


    an actor who has appeared in episodic tv almost since the invention of episodic tv is passed over and a kid who appeared in Glee and flamed out after just a few years rates a special tribute

    and Larry Hagman ...whose WHO SHOT JR moment was the biggest thing on TV and did I dream of Jeanie and has a career in television that dates back to 1951 (!!!!!) also does not get special attention

    unbelievable shame on the academy


    Emmys 2013: Jack Klugman's son rips Cory Monteith 'In Memoriam'


    LA TIMES



    By Scott Collins
    September 21, 2013, 10:00 a.m.



    "Glee" fans may appreciate the special tribute to the late star Cory Monteith at the Emmys on Sunday, but at least one group isn't so happy.


    That would be the family of Jack Klugman, the actor who starred in two big 1970s hits, "The Odd Couple" and "Quincy, M.E.," and who died last December.

    Klugman's son Adam is calling out the Emmy organizers for extending a special honor to Monteith -- the Canadian actor who died in July of heroin and alcohol poisoning at age 31 -- while tossing his father into the routine "In Memoriam" reel that will include many lesser-known actors and behind-the-scenes personnel.

    Referring to Monteith's overdose, Adam Klugman said in an interview: "They're celebrating this self-inflicted tragedy instead of celebrating the life of my father, who won three Emmys.... Cory Monteith never won an Emmy."

    Klugman emphasized he has nothing against Monteith and in fact is a "Glee" fan. But "to compare the contribution he made to the contribution my father made -- it doesn't compare," he said.

    This year, for the first time, Emmy organizers have decided to beef up the "In Memoriam" section with special tributes to five notable TV figures who died this year. The other honorees are writer-producer Gary David Goldberg, comic legend Jonathan Winters, and actors James Gandolfini and Jean Stapleton.

    Klugman is not the only noteworthy name missing from the list. Many critics were also surprised that organizers left off Larry Hagman, whose portrayal of J.R. Ewing on the original "Dallas" is one of TV's iconic performances.


    Asked for comment, Emmys executive producer Ken Ehrlich responded with a statement:

    "Every generation of television viewers has its favorites, and when we decided to expand the 'In Memoriam' segment to remember certain individuals, we wanted these pieces to be representative as well. To a younger generation, Cory Monteith's portrayal of Finn Hudson was highly admired, and the producers felt that he should be included along with the four other individuals we have singled out."

    Klugman scoffs at that explanation, saying that producers are side-stepping the real issue.

    "Let's call this what it is," he said. "They're doing this because they think they're gonna get a younger generation of viewers to watch."

    What do you think? Did Jack Klugman deserve the special tribute? Or are producers right to honor Monteith?

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    I hate when I dick around and don't have anything better to do than watch some bullshit faux awards show.

    Ever since Jethro Tull won a Grammy in the first ever "Heavy Metal" category, I gave up on awards shows

    It's the Emmys - if a past Emmy winner left us since the last show, then, yeah, I think they deserve more than just an "oh, by the way..."

    Edie Falco looked very pretty last night as she gave the memorial to James Gandolfini. It was very touching. On the other hand, Robin Williams totally rushed through the reading of Jonathan Winters and made it feel botched and uncomfortable. All the others were nicely done, but I ended up not seeing the traditional memorial to all the others that past away... if they even did it.

    The Emmys would be wise to drop this segment next year and return to the old way of just showing photos/clips.

    I thought it was funny and annoying how they gave the winners about a minute to give their acceptance speeches before the music started, yet they let the horrible scripted banter from the presenters to go on endlessly.

    The opening segment was all I needed to convince me to switch it back to the football game.
