The suits who run the Emmys had to make a hard choice in deciding which dead actor to honor– a TV icon who has won multiple Emmys, or a young actor with no Emmys who is now as famous for being a drug addict as a TV star. They chose door number 2.
It”s interesting. We”ve spoken with several people who have won Emmys who are upset with the decision to give a special honor to Cory Monteith but not Jack Klugman, and they”re all too scared to speak out … for fear of some sort of retaliation.
Jack Klugman — who has won 3 Emmys and starred in TV classics — “The Odd Couple” and “Quincy M.E.” — has been overlooked and disrespected for special mention during tonight”s ceremony. Instead … Cory Monteith gets the honor. Jack”s son thinks it”s ridiculous and disrespectful, and he”s right.
The Emmys are honoring 5 TV types who died in the last year — 4 of whom have earned their stripes … Jonathan Winters, Jean Stapleton, James Gandolfini, Gary David Goldberg — and then there”s Cory.
BTW … Larry Hagman was also overlooked. $(function() $(“#poll-1706-77f5f17784c4ec4f73e9b5d3d3c85e96 div form ul li”) .children() .not($(“div.styledRadio”)) .filter(“input:radio”) .screwDefaultButtons( checked: “url(http://ll-assets.tmz.com/www.tmz.com/default/cache/images/radio_Checked.v2013_04_30_065211.gif)”, unchecked: “url(http://ll-assets.tmz.com/www.tmz.com/default/cache/images/radio_Unchecked.v2013_04_30_065211.gif)”, width: 20, height: 20, pollid: “1706-77f5f17784c4ec4f73e9b5d3d3c85e96”, ); });

One TV type who has won multiple Emmys but wanted to remain anonymous scoffed and told our sources, “Awards are like hemorrhoids. Eventually every asshole gets one.”
