In the past, viewers have taken issue with how Emmys handled the in memoriam segment. In September 2022, many viewers called out the show for leaving out Olivia Newton-John—who died a month prior at age 73—from the telecast despite her TV credits in Sordid Lives: The SeriesBetteMurphy Brown and Ned and Stacey, as well as cameos on Dancing With the Stars and RuPaul’s Drag Race.

On their website, the Television Academy said that while they can only include a limited number of stars their annual televised in memoriam segment, they hope that their online database, which was launched in 2009, “will provide a venue for the acknowledgment of the television community as a whole.”
