At each year's Emmys, the biggest stars are often the ones who aren't there. The annual "In Memoriam" segment, which pays tribute to those who have passed away, is one of the Television Academy's most anticipated moments.
But this year's segment is thus far, stirring up more controversy than tearful reflection. The announcement of the five stars who will be included has stirred intense online reaction. Most notably, online commenters are up in arms over the inclusion of Cory Monteith, who died July 13 of an accidental overdose, at the expense, it is said, of older stars with longer credit sheets to celebrate.
