(ABC) -- This weekend's PrimeTime Emmy awards is receiving some backlash over their plans to give special recognition to late "Glee" star, Corey Monteith.

Monteith is among five TV stars who passed way this year to receive a special tribute at the awards show.

But some are angry that Monteith -- who died from a drug overdose-- is receiving special recognition, while actors with a much greater body of work, like Larry Hagman and Jack Klugman, aren't included in the Emmy's "In Memoriam" montage.

Along with Monteith, the other actors being singled out for longer tributes: are James Gandolfini, Jean Stapleon, and Jonathan Winters.
