Glee - Cory Monteith To Be Remembered At Emmy Awards

Producers of the upcoming Emmy Awards are planning to stage a tribute to late Glee star Cory Monteith.

The actor, who was found dead in a Canadian hotel room earlier this month (Jul13) after a drink and drugs binge, will be remembered at the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards.

Emmy Awards executive producer Ken Ehrlich has revealed show bosses are busy working on a fitting tribute, but he admits the pressure is on as the ceremony is less than two months away.

He tells, "Something that reflects an homage (is in the works but) what the extent of that is, or how we're going to approach it... well, it's too early to tell... If Cory had passed away in March, we'd have had four months to look at this with a little more perspective. The reason we're getting all of this discussion now is because he passed away two weeks ago. But we are going to deal with it."

Monteith's tribute will be separate to the show's In Memorium segment which honours late stars.

Glee is nominated for three prizes at the ceremony, including an Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series nod for Jane Lynch.

The 65th Primetime Emmy Awards will take place at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on 22 September (13).
