Posted on

Everett Collection

Gene Wilder, Alan Rickman, and more of Hollywood’s lost stars were remembered during the Emmys’ in memoriam montage Sunday night.

Henry Winkler introduced the montage by paying tribute to director and Happy Days creator Garry Marshall. Scored to an acoustic version of “Hallelujah” performed by Tori Kelly, the in memoriam video featured TV stars such as Doris Roberts (Everybody Loves Raymond), Al Molinaro (Happy Days), journalist Morley Safer (60 Minutes), George Kennedy (Dallas), Fred Thompson (Law & Order), and Abe Vigoda (Barney Miller).

The montage also honored those with various, less strong ties to TV. Boxer and activist Muhammad Ali was recognized, as were Gene Wilder, Alan Rickman, Anton Yelchin, musician David Bowie, Eagles guitarist Glenn Frey, singer Natalie Cole, and Prince.

Earlier in the Sunday ceremony, Jeffrey Tambor honored his late friend Garry Shandling by introducing a cut-up of some of highlights from Shandling’s long and influential career.
