Special Emmy memorial tributes planned

Along with the usual “In Memoriam” segment, the 65th annual Primetime Emmy Awards show also will spotlight the passing of five individuals with special tributes Sunday night.

James Gandolfini’s “The Sopranos” co-star Edie Falco will remember her longtime colleague and friend. Michael J. Fox will pay tribute to his “Family Ties” producer Gary David Goldberg. Dolton native Jane Lynch will honor her “Glee” co-star and close friend Cory Monteith. The memory of Jean Stapleton will be honored by Rob Reiner, who played her son-in-law on “All in the Family.” Finally, the late, great comic inspiration Jonathan Winters will be remembered by one of his many comedic proteges, Robin Williams — his friend and co-star on “Mork and Mindy.”

The Emmy Awards will be broadcast at 7 p.m. Sunday on WBBM-Channel 2.
