Cory Monteith’s family, friends and Glee co-stars have privately mourned the late actor, but during the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards, we’ll all get to remember him together. The award show’s executive producer revealed that this year’s show will include a tribute to Cory, although the extent and details have not been hashed out yet.
Obviously, there are plenty of television icons who unfortunately passed away this year, but Cory’s death is especially painstaking because of his current relevance and young age (he was only 31 when he accidentally overdosed on July 13). Because his death only occurred two weeks ago, producers are still working out how they’ll put the tribute together.
The Emmy’s are certainly not the first time Cory will be remembered either. The third episode of the upcoming season of Glee will be a tribute to its fallen cast member, while addressing the death of his character, Finn Hudson. Additionally, Cory’s girlfriend Lea Michele recently put together a memorial for the Glee/Fox family, as well as Cory’s own family and friends, to celebrate him.
