PEOPLE's TV Critic: What the Emmys Got Right and Wrong

Originally posted 09/23/2013 03:00PM

Late into the 65th annual Emmys ceremony Sunday on CBS, host Neil Patrick Harris announced: "No one in America is winning their Emmy office pool."

If you did happen to win, you should consider a career in statistical forecasting. The awards were all over the place.

Of the night's many surprises, the biggest was in the category of best actor. Academy voters for once decided not to give the prize to Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston – but instead of rewarding Mad Men's Jon Hamm, the perennial also-ran, they chose Jeff Daniels of HBO's The Newsroom. Perhaps they concluded that Hamm is already lousy with nominations, and handsome as the devil, and that should hold him. Daniels is a fine actor, as you'll discover if you catch just about any of his many performances of the past three decades, but The Newsroom's first season was a pounding surf of angry, righteous yammering. Oh well.

Here's what else the Emmys got right and wrong:

Stars Say Goodbye to Cory Monteith, James Gandolfini & More at the Emmys

Cory Monteith, James Gandolfini & More Late Stars Honored at the Emmys

There was an outcry when the Emmy producers announced that they were paying special tribute during Sunday's telecast to five people the industry had lost over the past year.

The rumblings were so loud about what some saw as favoritism that even Emmys host Neil Patrick Harris stepped into the fray to explain the reasoning.

"I always find the In Memoriam is just really interesting because sometimes it seems weird that they keep the audio on in the house, so some people get applause and some people don't, and it turns it into this weird moment," he told Access Hollywood. "And you want that moment to be honoring those people, and not a competition."

Jane Lynch: Losing Cory Monteith Has 'Just Been Brutal' for Lea Michele

Originally posted 09/22/2013 02:00PM

For Jane Lynch, coping with the loss of Glee costar Cory Monteith is an ongoing struggle.

"I think that grieving comes in waves," she told PEOPLE at the Ciroq-sponsored Variety & Women in Film pre-Emmy event in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Friday. "Every day that I go to work, I walk past his trailer, and every time I look at a call sheet I see that his name is not on there. Every time I do a scene with the kids I realize that he's not there, so you're reminded in every moment. It's hard, and it feels like such a waste."

But while Lynch admits "it's tough" as she and her castmates continue to mourn the 31-year-old – who died from a lethal combination of heroin and alcohol this past July – her heart goes out to his girlfriend and costar, Lea Michele.

The cast of Glee said a final goodbye to Cory Monteith, who died in July, through his character, Finn Hudson, in a tribute episode they filmed recently that costar Jane Lynch says is "really beautiful."

"It was hard, and it was beautifully written," Lynch, 53, told PEOPLE at the FOX Fall Eco-Casino party Monday. "We grieved together, and it was so important for the crew to grieve as well, so we kind of all grieved as a big family."

"It was really hard to do, but it was a really beautiful episode."

Lara Embry Seeks Spousal Support from Jane Lynch

Originally posted 08/23/2013 07:00PM

Jane Lynch's estranged wife Lara Embry is asking for attorney fees to be paid for by the Glee star, along with spousal support.

Lynch, 53, who has been separated from Embry since February, had sought in divorce papers to terminate the court's jurisdiction to award spousal support to her ex. Embry's requests came in her response filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Lynch said in July that their breakiup is "not dramatic," adding, "It's not a horrible thing. … It's two people who just decide it's better to go apart than stay together."
