This year, the Emmys In Memoriam segment will shine a spotlight on a certain group of people that the entertainment world lost too soon.
Cory Monteith, James Gandolfini, Gary David Goldberg, Jean Stapleton and Jonathan Winters will all get special recognition during Sunday's broadcast of the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards.
"The In Memoriam is a very emotional and evocative segment for the Emmys, or any annual awards program," executive producer Ken Ehrlich said in a statement. "These five individuals brought us such great entertainment and joy, so having their close friends share personal remembrances is something that will be very meaningful for television audiences across the country and across the generations. And, our traditional In Memoriam segment will be presented in a unique new format that will give added importance to an already much anticipated segment of the Emmy show."

Fox for "Family Ties" producer Gary David Goldberg; Rob Reiner for "All in the Family" castmember Jean Stapleton; and Robin Williams for friend and mentor Jonathan Winters from "Mork and Mindy."
The 65th Emmy Awards, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, will air this Sunday on CBS.
