Emmys In Memoriam Honors Betty White, Bob Saget, Nichelle Nichols, and More
The 74th yearly Early evening Emmy Awards took put on Monday night, honoring the greatest achievements in television. As a component of the proceedings, Hollywood also honored the beloved and iconic figures who have passed away since last year’s Emmys, in the form of this year’s In Memoriam bundle. This year’s Emmy Awards In Memoriam highlighted a number of important figures who passed away in late 2021 and mid 2022. This included incredible actors Betty White, Nichelle Nichols, Bob Saget, Louie Anderson, James Caan, Beam Liota, and Anne Heche.
“Despite the fact that Betty was going to be 100, I figured she would live forever,” White’s representative and close friend Jeff Witjas shared while announcing her death in late 2021. “I will miss her frightfully and so will the creature world that she loved so much. I don’t think Betty at any point feared passing because she always wanted to accompany her most beloved husband Allen Ludden. She accepted she would be with him again.”
The In Memoriam was joined by a performance of “Pieces”, another song from John Legend.
“Ordinarily we wouldn’t do another song in a situation like this. We listened with skepticism which immediately went to wild enthusiasm. This is an incredulous powerful moving song,” Emmys leader maker Reginald “Reggie” Hudlin said in a statement when Legend’s involvement was first declared. “You folks are fans of John Legend, you know how he can get straight in your heart and separate you. … A John Legend performance is always something to be excited about and the song is remarkable and special and particularly suited to the context we’ll place it in.”
