Larry Hagman At The EMMYS: Not 'In MEMORIAM,' ButIn ABSENTIA
TVWorthWatching ^ | September 20, 2013

Posted on 09/22/2013 4:02:57 PM PDT by SMGFan

In life, he never won an Emmy, although nominated twice. In death he won’t receive one of the five separate special “In Memoriam” tributes during the Sunday, Sept. 22 awards ceremony on CBS. The program’s executive producer made that firmly if imperfectly clear when asked, by me, during a Wednesday afternoon teleconference.

Hagman is more deserving due to his contribution to TV: I Dream of Jeannie & Dallas. Jack Klugman's son took issue as well.

Cory’s mom said “If he had lived 30 more years he would have accomplished much more,” she tells TMZ. The site says that she believes Adam is misdirected in his anger, though she notes that this likely comes from a place of a son who misses his father.

Cory died doing what he loved to do, getting high.

Tough decision: Do you do a special segment on the reformed alcoholic who destroyed his liver and got a liver transplant that extended his life by about 15 years, or do you go with the non-reformed heroine addict who OD'd and left a pretty corpse?

I was pleased to see Larry Hagman as the other guest on Late Night with Conan O’Brien when I had gotten stand by tickets for Sarah Michelle Gellar’s appearance. I enjoyed “I Dream of Jeannie” in repeats back in the 70’s. AS J. R. he was great. Rush was a “Dallas” fan as well.

And Klugman died at 90 but he had health issues from smoking.

Yep. And Hagman enlisted in the Air Force during the Korean War. That should count for something.

“This year, for the first time, Emmy organizers have decided to beef up the “In Memoriam” section with special tributes to five notable TV figures who died this year. The other honorees are writer-producer Gary David Goldberg, comic legend Jonathan Winters, and actors James Gandolfini and Jean Stapleton.” I bet there will be song & dance numbers or awards that could have been introduced combined .

Without getting into the drug issues surrounding Montieth’s death, he should not be honored. He was a forgettable part of an ensemble cast. His singing was sub-par and the acting was not much better.
On the other hand, Hagman was simply amazing, regardless of his role.

Because he is popular among the young which is who they hope watch. The 70-80 crowd already watch. It is all marketing.

As opposed to liberal hypocrite Larry Hagman, the tobacco smoker, reefer doper, LSD tripper alcoholic. Tough decision.

Larry Hagman, for all his faults, was married to the same woman from 1954 until his death in 2012. That he managed that and a Hollywood career is simply unheard of.

I had the absolute pleasure of sitting next to Jack Klugman during an airline flight. Before I knew who he was, he went out of his way to assist me when I had a sneezing fit during and after takeoff. He even offered me a lozenge, which immediately relieved the sneezing spasms. Once I could breathe again, we exchanged greetings, and I realized the kind gentleman was also the legendary actor with piercing blue eyes.

It was Jack Klugman who turned me on to Fisherman's Friend lozenges. I've been a rock solid fan ever since.

Thanks SMGFan.

Well, Robin Williams just read a short minute or 2 about Jonathan Winters. No big video production. Then commercial.

Well, at least Hagman had a long, multi-decade career. But, yeah, Hagman himself was pretty much an embarrassment. I read a long interview he gave, and I swear, he came across as the most ludicrously self-absorbed person I could imagine, droning endlessly about his search for inner spirituality through dope. It was so... pathetic.

And indeed he was also such a laughable hypocrite, obnoxiously and mean-spiritedly going around lambasting tobacco and tobacco smokers, while boozing and ingesting every form of dope around!

Two things:

1. To hell w/the Hagman haters.
2. There is poetry in your words....”that gay show” and
“full blown”. Gaytards would love to be able to bleep
that......but they can’t.

I didn’t particularly like Dallas, but you have to give it it’s due: it changed the rules for drama in the 80s, and Hagman was a big part of the reason.

There were a few dozen who didn’t get their own individual “in memoriam”s. They still put up his photo when they listed all the rest, which included some other big, but for the most part, very old, names. He just wasn’t one of the five they chose to do an in-depth memorial.

And I find a lot of the comments about Cory Monteith to be in very poor taste. He was young, talented, and had a problem. I’m not a fan of “Glee,” but this wasn’t some morally bankrupt criminal. As far as I know, his only crimes were against himself.

Larry Hagman had his own problems, too. Who knows if Cory Monteith might have cleaned up eventually if he hadn’t passed away? I looked at his Twitter right after they announced his death and they all seemed perfectly normal; it didn’t seem like he was on some bender. And there were posts from less than 24 hours before. His heart just gave out with what I imagine was very light use, for an addict.

As for him being chosen over Larry Hagman, the core demo that I imagine watch the Emmys probably wouldn’t know who he is, for the most part. There’s no way they could left Mr. Monteith out. And I thought what Jane Lynch said was perfect, actually.

I didn’t even know those were on last night.

Guess who won best actor in a drama? Jeff Daniels for playing a liberal news anchor in some HBO show that world barely knows exists. I wouldn’t if I didn’t see in a list of shows once and wondered what it was. Just like with the 2 they gave to James Spader for the atrocious “Boston Legal”, Daniels gets rewarded for making liberal speeches to the camera.

I didnt even know that was on last night.

Last night I watched Columbo, Thriller (Boris Karloff as Host) and twilight Zone on Me-TV.

I also saw a few minutes of the Hannity town hall debate free-for-all on defunding Obama-care in a CR, that was the replay at midnight.

Me-TV was better than Hannity.
