At Sunday's ceremony, which airs live at 8 ET/5 PT on CBS, Edie Falco will pay tribute to her late TV husband, "The Sopranos'" James Gandolfini, and Jane Lynch will honor her former "Glee" co-star Cory Monteith. Michael J. Fox will appear to pay homage to "Family Ties" and "Spin City" creator Gary David Goldberg, and Rob Reiner will remember his late "All in the Family" co-star Jean Stapleton. Robin Williams will pay tribute to his mentor and former "Mork & Mindy" co-star Jonathan Winters.

"The 'In Memoriam' is a very emotional and evocative segment for the Emmys, or any annual awards program," executive producer Ken Ehrlich said in a statement. "These five individuals brought us such great entertainment and joy, so having their close friends share personal remembrances is something that will be very meaningful for television audiences across the country and across the generations. And our traditional 'In Memoriam' segment will be presented in a unique new format that will give added importance to an already much anticipated segment of the Emmy show."
