Neil: death is not a competition
Emmys host Neil Patrick Harris has decided to change the way the show’s In Memoriam tribute segment is presented.
“I always find the In Memoriam is just really interesting because sometimes it seems weird that they keep the audio on in the house, so some people get applause and some people don’t, and it turns it into this weird moment,” Harris told Access Hollywood. “And you want that moment to be honoring those people, and not a competition.
“We’ve come up with this idea — five different people that we chose sort of from different areas of television are being spoken about by people who were important to them,” he explained. “[They’ll speak about them] not in a pitying way, but I think in a respectful, classy way that will make you remember their life in a positive, forward-momentum kind of style.”
In a statement released last week it was announced five late stars will be featured in the new-look segment: actor James Gandolfini (remembered by his Sopranos co-star Edie Falco), producer Gary David Goldberg (remembered by Family Ties star Michael J. Fox), actor Cory Monteith (remembered by his Glee co-star Jane Lynch), actress Jean Stapleton (remembered by her All in the Family co-star Rob Reiner), and actor Jonathan Winters (remembered by his Mork and Mindy co-star Robin Williams.)
Jack Klugman’s son Adam Klugman has expressed his outrage that his father – famous for his role in Quincy – wasn’t in the line-up. He told the Los Angeles Times: “They’re celebrating this self-inflicted tragedy instead of celebrating the life of my father, who won three Emmys. … Cory Monteith never won an Emmy.”
But Cory Monteith’s mother has told TMZ her son is absolutely worthy of getting a special in memoriam honour.
“Ann tells us she believes you cannot judge worthiness by a person’s age because her son was on a path of greatness — not only with his acting and singing abilities … but with the charitable work he did.
“Ann tells us, `If he had lived 30 more years he would have accomplished much more.'”
But she won’t be watching the telecast because it would be “too painful”.
Interviewer gives Justin her butt
That awkward moment when an interviewer gives you a mould of her butt as a present!
That’s what happened to Justin Timberlake recently during a press stop in Brazil for his movie Runner Runner.

Whether Sato’s shtick is an act or not, JT’s reactions are priceless. Watch and be prepared to laugh a lot:

Bryan confesses to couples’ therapy
Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston has revealed he attends regular couple’s therapy sessions with wife Robin.
In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, the 57-year-old star said: “I see a [therapist] in L.A. from time to time, when I’m feeling edgy or anxiety-ridden. And my wife and I go to a couples therapist. Our agreement is, if either of us feels like we want to go, the other can’t object.
“For my father’s generation, as he literally said, “I’d rather stick needles in my eyes than go to a therapist,” he added. ‘When I was a kid, if you heard of someone who went to a psychiatrist, it meant they were crazy. That’s the kind of labelling and judgement I was raised with. And I had to get rid of that.”
The couple married in 1989 after meeting on the set of TV show Airwolf and they have a daughter Taylor, 19.
Jane: losing Cory has been brutal for Lea
Glee star Jane Lynch has confessed she’s still struggling to cope with the loss of her co-star Cory Monteith.
“I think that grieving comes in waves,” she told People magazine at a pre-Emmy event. “Every day that I go to work, I walk past his trailer, and every time I look at a call sheet I see that his name is not on there. Every time I do a scene with the kids I realize that he’s not there, so you’re reminded in every moment. It’s hard, and it feels like such a waste.”
But her heart goes out to his girlfriend and co-star, Lea Michele: “I know it’s just been brutal for her,” Lynch says. “I never lost a boyfriend when I was 26 years old. I can’t tell her what her experience is. She’s a champion, and she is a rock star, and she is getting through this.”
