The Emmys Mistook Composer Leonard Slatkin for the Late Andr Previn in the In Memoriam
The 2019 Emmys honored stars like Valerie Harper, Luke Perry, Carol Channing and more in its "In Memoriam" segment on Sunday night -- but its tribute to the late Andre Previn is making headlines. While Previn's name was displayed across the screen, a photo of another composer, the very much alive Leonard Slatkin, appeared alongside. "I saw that @theemmys posted a photo of me 'In Memoriam' rather than the intended Andre Previn," he tweeted.
