The thought is this: Cory never won an Emmy. So why did the show overlook Emmy winners who also passed away this year in order to pay tribute to him?
Whatever your thoughts on the issue, its hard to deny that Cory’s tribute was one of the most talked-about parts of the show. As such, it comes as no surprise that the Twitter’s official data analysis has revealed a tweet about Cory to be the most re-tweeted of anything Emmys related that night.
Cory’s former Glee co-star Kevin McHale (Artie) was not in the audience during the show, but he did watch Jane Lynch’s heartfelt tribute to Cory from home, and Kevin immediately took to Twitter to react to it.
