The Emmys - In Memoriam


Last weekend, the 72nd annual Emmy Awards were held without the usual pomp and circumstance. Due to Covid-19, this year's Emmys were held remotely, with the host Jimmy Kimmel and a hand full of presenters the only "in-person" in the building. All of the nominees were sent cameras and the entire thing was done virtually with winners accepting from their homes.

One part of the show that remained like usual was the annual "In Memoriam" in which the Television Academy honors those who had passed away throughout the year. It's always a very touching part of the show. This year, recording artist HER sang a beautiful cover of "Nothing Compares To You". Some of those who were honored include Regis Philbin, Caroll Spinney who for many years was Big Bird on Sesame Street, Brian Dennehy, Ken Osman who was Eddy Haskle on Leave It To Beaver, Jerry Stiller, Carl Reiner, Kirk Douglas, Chadwick Bosman, and more.
