Jack Klugman’s son Adam is not pleased at the perceived snub of his father, who died last December, from the main Emmy Awards tributes in 2013.
Adam described the situation as “criminal” to THR.
“My dad was at the inception of television and helped build it in the early days," he says of Jack, who was beloved for The Odd Couple and Quincy, M.E.
"It’s an insult and it really seems typical of this youth-centric culture that has an extremely short attention span and panders to only a very narrow demographic.”
In addition to the Cory Montieth Emmy tribute, James Gandolfini, Gary David Goldberg, Jonathan Winters and Jean Stapleton were also honored.
Nothing for Jack Klugman.
