Emmys to honour Glee star Monteith

Cory Monteith is among those being honoured at the Emmys

Emmy organisers say Sunday's awards ceremony will include five special memorial tributes, including one to Cory Monteith.

The Glee star died in July at age 31 of a heroin and alcohol overdose. He will be remembered by the show's Jane Lynch.

The TV academy says Edie Falco will honour James Gandolfini, her co-star on The Sopranos, at this year's ceremony. James died of a heart attack in June at age 51.

Other tributes planned include Rob Reiner honouring All in the Family Star Jean Stapleton, Robin Williams remembering his friend and mentor Jonathan Winters, and Michael J Fox honouring Family Ties producer Gary David Goldberg.

The TV academy says Sunday's Emmy ceremony on CBS also will include the traditional "in memoriam" segment recognising other industry members who have died.
