The last year has seen Hollywood lose many stars and many of those pop culture icons were remembered in the In Memoriam portion of Monday's Emmy Awards.

Tina Fey introduced the annual segment, which both started and ended with music legend Aretha Franklin, who died last month at the age of 76. As Franklin's version of "Amazing Grace" played, the In Memoriam paid tribute to Craig Zadan, Neil Simon, Burt Reynolds, Charlotte Rae, Steven Bochco, and Anthony Bourdain.

One controversial inclusion was John McCain, the former Republican presidential candidate who died Aug. 25 at the age of 81. During his career in office, the Arizona senator hosted a 2002 episode of Saturday Night Live and made cameos on 24 and Parks and Recreation.
