LOS ANGELES, Sept. 16 (UPI) -- The late TV stars James Gandolfini, Cory Monteith, Jean Stapleton and Jonathan Winters are to be honored at Sunday's Emmy Awards show in Los Angeles, CBS said.

The quartet, along with producer Gary David Goldberg, will receive special recognition outside the show's traditional "In Memoriam" segment.

Those who will provide special tributes include Edie Falco, who will remember her "Sopranos" co-star Gandolfini; Michael J. Fox, who will honor his "Family Ties" producer Goldberg; Jane Lynch, who will talk about her friend and "Glee" co-star Cory Monteith; Rob Reiner, who will pay tribute to his long-time "All in the Family" co-star Jean Stapleton; and Robin Williams, who will remember his friend and mentor Winters.

"The 'In Memoriam' is a very emotional and evocative segment for the Emmys, or any annual awards program," Emmys Executive Producer Ken Ehrlich said in a statement Monday. "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."

Neil Patrick Harris is to serve as host of the ceremony, which celebrates the year's best in television.
