For reasons we can't comprehend, some folks are diametrically opposed to Cory Monteith's inclusion in this Sunday's In Memoriam tribute at the 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards!
Thankfully, Emmy producers are standing by their man. The Glee star was taken from us all way too soon, and they plan to honor his memory regardless of any shade coming their way.
Emmy producer Ken Ehrlich revealed:
"It was a rather personal choice, but Cory's appeal was to maybe a little different generation than some of the others we're honoring. We felt it needed to be represented, that at 31, he passed away under very tragic circumstances. And that it was important to be responsive to younger viewers, to whom Cory Monteith meant as much as perhaps these other four individuals meant to their own generations."
How wonderfully put!
It's silly trying to compare who had a bigger impact, but you can be sure most Gleeks will be stocking up on Kleenex and tuning in this weekend!
"No matter what we do, there will be people who feel we could have made other options, and done other things."
In other words, haters gonna hate.
Cory will be honored alongside the James Gandolfini, Jean Stapleton, and other TV legends who recently passed.
Do U agree with the Emmy producers decision?
