Emmys In Memoriam Honors John Singleton, Nancy Wilson

The 2019 Emmy Awards paid tribute to some of the stars the entertainment industry lost over the past year.

As Halsey sang Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time,” a video montage played on screen.

Among the actors, writers, journalists and directors included in the segment were Disney Channel star Cameron Boyce, jazz singer Nancy Wilson, The Young and the Restless actor Kristoff St. John, actress and director Penny Marshall, and legendary filmmaker John Singleton.

Singleton died on April 28 after suffering a stroke. The 51-year-old Los Angeles native helmed a string of popular films including Boyz N the Hood, and co-created the FX series Snowfall.

Also remembered in the segment were Marvel comic book legend Stan Lee, Emmy-winning actress Valerie Harper, Raven’s Home showrunner Eunetta T. Boone, and writer-producer Kevin Barnett.

Barnett, who co-created Fox’s Rel and wrote for Comedy Central’s Broad City, died of a non-traumatic hemorrhage, caused by pancreatitis in January while vacationing in Mexico. He was 32 years old.
