Cory Monteith's in memoriam tribute was controversial this year. People were angered that Monteith was getting a full segment, while other other more celebrated and well-known actors like Jack Klugman or Larry Hagman were not getting recognized. The Emmys' executive producer defended the choice to honor Monteith. 

Jane Lynch, Monteith's Glee co-star, was the one to deliver the tribute. Whatever your opinion of the controversy, the tribute was very poignant and very filled with message.
