Sunday’s Emmy Awards will feature special In Memoriam tributes to a handful of VIPS: James Gandolfini, Jonathan Winters, Jean Stapleton, Gary David Goldberg, and Cory Monteith.
Those delivering the tributes are especially perfect for the job: Edie Falco for Gandolfini, Robin Williams for Winters, Rob Reiner for Stapleton, Michael J. Fox for Goldberg, and Jane Lynch for Monteith.
The Emmys are going to be a hot show this year with nominees from faves like “Mad Men,” “Homeland,” “Breaking Bad,” etc all vying against each other.
Last night at the Creative Arts Emmys, which aren’t televised, Bob Newhart won his first ever Emmy Award for a guest appearance on “The Big Bang Theory.” It’s hard to believe that he never won anything for either of great sitcoms. That should give Jon Hamm hope. Newhart is 84 years old.
