Emmys 'In Memoriam' shows living composer

LOS ANGELES - Any "In Memoriam" segment on an awards show results in immediate viewer furor over which recently deceased figures got left out. In the case of Sunday's Emmy Awards, it was more about who got included: the very much still-with-us conductor and composer Leonard Slatkin — or at least his photographic representation, as he was misidentified as Andre Previn, who is, in fact, dead.

Slatkin was less concerned with anyone thinking he might have passed on, too, than he was about disrespect for his friend Previn.

Tweeted Slatkin, "I saw that @theemmys posted a photo of me 'In Memoriam' rather than the intended Andre Previn. Andre deserved better. I had the opportunity to introduce him when he received the @KCHonors."





Wow, that's embarrassing -_- .

It seems that Slatkin has taken it pretty well - although, I hope a real 'In Memoriam' segment for him isn't going to be required for a long time yet!
