The 2013 Emmys were filled with both celebrations and tributes.
For while shows such as Modern Family and Breaking Bad gave folks plenty to fist pump over, a number of untimely deaths also gave them far too many colleagues to moun.
Along those sad lines, Jane Lynch paid tribute to late Glee star Cory Monteith.
"It is remarkable, and perhaps a little curious, how quickly TV shows become like family in some ways," Lynch said during the broadcast. "This summer on our show, Glee, we suffered a painful death in our family. Cory Monteith played Finn Hudson, a star quarterback turned wide-eyed, heartfelt glee singer.
"And from the first time you saw Cory, he had a star quality and genuine sweetness that made it impossible not to fall in love with him. And millions did fall in love with Cory."
