Emmy’s Touching Tributes Were Well Done

65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards - Show

This was a difficult year in the T.V. business when it came to losing very talented individuals, and the Emmy awards show addressed those losses with simple, touching tributes.

Sometimes awards shows go over the top with everything they do, and I was hoping that wouldn’t be the case with the tributes that were planned for James Gandolfini, Cory Monteith and Jean Stapleton among others. I don’t think it was. I think the tributes were handled with sincerity and respect.

Edie Falco paid tribute to Gandolfini, Rob Reiner spoke about his love for Jean Stapleton and Jane Lynch gave an emotional tribute to Monteith.

There was some controversy, according to, about those not paid tribute to in the same way, namely Jack Klugman and Larry Hagman among others.

Controversy aside, I thought the tributes that were done were well done. Simple, real and honest words from those who cared about the celebrities who were lost and certainly brought tears to the eye.
