Vaughn, Moore, Landau in Emmy In Memoriam

Robert Vaughn in The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

Robert Vaughn (The Man From U.N.C.L.E.), Roger Moore (The Saint) and Martin Landau (Mission: Impossible) were among those included in the In Memoriam segment of the Emmy broadcast Sunday night on CBS.

Also included were Mike Connors of Mannix and Adam West of the 1966-68 Batman series. With the latter. a short clip from the show’s pilot played, with Batman doing the “Batusi” dance.

The Emmy version of In Memoriam seemed more weighted to performers compared with the Oscars telecast on ABC, which included publicists. However, some behind-the-camera professionals were included in the Emmy In Memoriam, including producer Stanley Kallis, who worked on Mission: Impossible, among other shows.

Vaughn, who had an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor, and Connors were not included in the Oscars In Memoriam segement earlier this year.

Others included were Mary Tyler Moore (the segment ended with her) and cartoon voice June Foray.

UPDATE (Sept. 18): You can view the In Memoriam segment for yourself.

  1. Nice to know there was SOMETHING decent about the emmy’s. I stopped watching it years ago as it had devolved into nothing more than a self-indulgent masturbatory orgy of “we are SO special”. And now it has turned into nothing more than a disgraceful display of political bashing of anyone who is not a liberal, filled with inexcusable displays of hatred and disrespect for the elected leader of the country.

  2. Yes, it did get too political, but what bothered me is that they are getting away from real TV and awarding streamed shows and stuff on Netflix and Hulu. The In Memoriam was done nicely, with the photos shown in frames.

  3. They did not include Erin Moran (Happy Days, Joanie Loves Chachi) nor Patti Deutsch (Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, Match Game, voice actress) in the Emmy’s In Memoriam.
