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

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

Originally posted 09/22/2013 11:45PM

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.

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."
