Special moment on Emmy’s

Nearly three months after the unexpected passing of Matthew Perry on October 28, the iconic Friends star received a poignant tribute at the 75th Emmy Awards on January 15, 2024. The ceremony, originally postponed from 2023, dedicated a special moment to honor Perry’s legacy, alongside other luminaries lost in the past year.

The emotionally charged tribute occurred during the annual “In Memoriam” segment of the ceremony. While Charlie Puth performed his 2015 song “See You Again” alongside The War and Treaty, the touching transition to the Friends theme song, “I’ll Be There for You,” resonated deeply. Perry’s image concluded the tribute, accompanied by a collage featuring all those remembered during the moving montage.

Perry’s fellow Friends stars, including Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer, expressed their profound grief in a joint statement. They referred to themselves as more than castmates but as a family. Each actor shared personal tributes, with Aniston remembering Perry as her “little brother.”
