It all started Thursday morning, when the Hamilton creator tweeted out the daily inspirational message to his followers — this time, featuring a GIF of Matarazzo grinning from a scene in Netflix's supernatural series, writing:

"Good morning. Your smile is worth a fortune, and yours to spend as you wish."

Matarazzo took that advice, proceeding to spend his morning star-struck about being the subject of LMM's Tweet. He promptly responded:

Christina Grimmie's Fans React To The Slain Singer Being Left Out Of Emmys 'In Memoriam' Tribute!

no title

Every award show has its fair share of snubs, and that includes the recently deceased stars who didn't make it into the "In Memoriam" segment.

At the 2016 Emmys, Christina Grimmie's fans noticed the late singer was not featured in the emotional tribute, which honored stars from the television screen to the worlds of sports and music.

Fans flocked to Twitter to make their disappointment known in regard to The Voice star not being mentioned among the legendary stars who passed away this year, including Gene Wilder, Garry Marshall, Muhammad Ali, Garry Shandling, Doris Roberts, and more.

Because The Voice earned a trophy for Best Reality Competition Show, fans were especially upset over Grimmie's absence — but this isn't the first time the 22-year-old has been left out of an award show since her tragic slaying this June.

In August, fans were upset that the singer wasn't mentioned at this year's Teen Choice Awards, and even started a petition for Fox to formally apologize to her family for "disrespecting" the late star.

Do YOU think Grimmie's fans have a right to be upset over her absence at the Emmys In Memoriam segment?

Filed under: TV NewsR.I.P.Sad SadJimmy FallonBestiezLate Night TVNostalgia

This loss has been difficult for celebs to process.

And, it seems Mel Brooks is having a particularly tough time coping with the death of Gene Wilder, who passed away on Monday due to complications with Alzheimer's disease.

While the 90-year-old had already expressed his grief on Twitter, he didn't feel 140 characters was enough to properly mourn his good friend.

The comedian stopped by The Tonight Show on Tuesday, and opened up to Jimmy Fallon about how much he misses his comedic partner in crime, saying:

"He was sick, and I knew it. And he was such a dear friend. I expected it. I expected he would go but, I don't know, when it happens, it's still tremendous. It's still a big shock, you know. I'm still reeling from that no more Gene. I can't call him. And he was such a wonderful part of my life."

Even though recalling his fondest memories of the Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory star was clearly emotional for the New York native, he went on to describe some of his best moments with the acclaimed actor.

He hilariously recounted the first time he met the thespian, pitching The Producers to him, crafting the concept for Young Frankenstein together, and many other enjoyable encounters.

And, Mel even got the audience laughing in the wake of Gene's sad passing. Take a look at the clip (above) for the filmmaker's touching tribute.

"It's kind of like losing a parent. You know it's going to happen, but it's still a shock. He was not in good health at the end and it was not unexpected by any means, but when it happens it hits you like, 'Gene is gone and there will never be anyone like him again.'"
