She Honors Her “Gifted” and “Wonderful” Glee Costar.Among all the tearful acceptance speeches and happy cries of surprise from the Emmy winners was a solemn moment for Glee star Cory Monteith, who died tragically this summer.
Despite some people having misgivings about Monteith being singled out during the In Memoriam tribute, he was indeed honored tonight at the Primetime Emmy Awards by someone who worked closely with him on the Fox series: Jane Lynch.
Lynch took the stage to give a moving speech dedicated to the 31-year-old actor, calling Monteith a “gifted and wonderful young man” who was “worthy” of the all the love he received from fans.
