I only made it through one hour of the Emmys last night because “Breaking Bad” rules my life and the second to last episode aired at the same time. But I followed along on Twitter and it seemed like the Emmys somewhat unintentionally were themed around death. In between giving out awards, various members of the television business who passed away this year were honored, either in individual tributes or as part of a montage. This went on throughout the show, rather than in a typical single segment, with five people getting individual tributes. (This dour mood makes sense when you consider how many especially well-known TV stars and contributors knocked on heaven’s door this year.) Jean Stapleton, who played Edith Bunker on “All In The Family,” was honored by Rob Reiner; Edie Falco paid tribute to her “Sopranos” husband, James Gandolfini; and Jane Lynch remembered her “Glee” costar Cory Monteith, who died of a drug overdose in July. Comedian and actor Jonathan Winters, and Family Ties producer Gary David Goldberg were also individually honored. Not a dry eye was in the house, like, all night.

But one person was more angry than moved by the tribute to Monteith. Jack Klugman, who starred on “The Odd Couple” and was a three-time Emmy winner, passed away in December 2012 and was included in the remembrance montage, a fact which his son, Adam Klugman, says is “criminal” and “an insult.” The younger Klugman seemed to take particular issue with Monteith getting an in memoriam segment all his own, telling the Associated Press, “It really seems typical of this youth-centric culture that has an extremely short attention span and panders to only a very narrow demographic [of young adults].” Keep reading »

The Best Bromances Of TV & Film

We love it when guys are fools for love! Nothing is cuter than a gentleman who is cool and sensitive enough to show his best friend he cares. So we totally freaked out when we picked up this week’s TV Guide and saw the stars of Fox’s medical drama “House,” Dr. Wilson with his arm around Dr. House under the caption “Isn’t It Bromantic!” Aww, they’re the cutest couple of cover boys! But they’re not the only television show slated to capture all the dudely devotion this Fall. “The Hill’s” Brody Jenner will also be looking for a fella he can be fond of in his upcoming MTV reality show, “Bromance”. Is this the season of buddy shows? We sure hope so! So in honor of the guys who have added some man love to Television and Film, here are The Best Bromances, after the jump… Keep reading »
