LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The Emmy Awards will feature five special memorial tributes, including one to "Glee" star Cory Monteith, organizers said.
Monteith died in July at age 31 of a heroin and alcohol overdose. He will be remembered by the show's Jane Lynch.
In addition, Edie Falco will honor James Gandolfini, her co-star on "The Sopranos." Gandolfini died of a heart attack in June at age 51.
Other tributes during the Sunday event will see Rob Reiner honoring "All in the Family Star" Jean Stapleton; Robin Williams remembering his friend and mentor Jonathan Winters; and Michael J. Fox honoring "Family Ties" producer Gary David Goldberg.
The ceremony on CBS also will include the traditional "in memoriam" segment recognizing other industry members who have died.
