Dearly departed "Glee" star Cory Monteith, who died last month at the age of 31, will be memorialized during the October 10 episode of Fox's song-and-dance series when it returns this fall. But in the meantime, the network has released an In Memoriam video—a brief montage recalling the actor's too brief stint on the show.
Additionally, Emmy Awards executive producer Ken Ehrlich told Deadline last week that a tribute is in the works for the awards ceremony airing September 22. Ehrlich said everything is in the early stages, but that it would be "something that reflects an homage."
A few days later and the death of Cory Monteith, the lovable, gawky jock at the heart of "Glee," isn't getting any easier to stomach. The 31 year-old was found dead in his Vancouver hotel room July 13, and cause of death has not yet been determined.
Monteith, who completed rehab for substance abuse earlier this year, was universally beloved among costars, coworkers, reporters, and fans. That came across on screen as he played McKinley High social chameleon Finn Hudson, who got along as well (and often better) with his glee clubbers as he did with his football teammates.
To honor this genuinely nice dude, Hollywood Crush rounded up a few of Monteith's most memorable "Glee" moments.
Last night, the unhappy news of Nora Ephron's death at 71 swept across the internet like a juggernaut of sadness—sadness so deep and all-encompassing that we immediately put in our DVD of "Sleepless in Seattle," watched it all the way to the end, and cried the whole way through.
...Not because of the sad loss of a talented writer/director, but because that's what always happens when we watch one of her movies, because she was just that good at making you feel things.
And today, in honor of the inimitable Ms. Ephron, we've put together this list of the most wonderful moments from her movies that made us feel all the feelings. Sad, frustrating, funny and true, these are five scenes out of many that made her work painfully, perfectly human.
The literary world lost one of its best and brightest today with the death of "Where the Wild Things Are" author Maurice Sendak. He was 83.
The writer/illustrator's seminal work—which follows mischievous, wolf-suit-wearing youngster Max as he sets sail for adventure—was adapted into a feature film by Spike Jonze in 2009. His other well-known picture books include 1970's "In The Night Kitchen" and 1981's "Outside Over There." Sendak's dark and daring tales will no doubt live on in the hearts of children (and adults) for generations to come, but his influence on fellow authors certainly can't be ignored, as many took to Twitter today to pay their respects.

Hollywood continues to mourn the loss of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, who died at the age of 56 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. It's hard to imagine anyone who wasn't touched by one of the icon's innovations: from the category-changing iPod to the Pixar films we just can't help watching over and over again. But a surprising celebrity testament from "Glee" star Harry Shum Jr. especially touched our hearts.
Before he was a singing-and-dancing glee clubber, Harry was part of Apple's memorable iPod silhouette commercials, an experience he credits with boosting his career (and sparking an undying love of all things Apple). Here's his story:
