While the Emmy Awards’ “In Memoriam” segment is more medium-agnostic than the Oscars’ — Sunday night’s ceremony featured tributes to Prince, David Bowie, Merle Haggard, and Anton Yelchin — snubs still remain. One notable name left off this year’s segment was Christina Grimmie, the YouTube star and Voice contestant who was fatally shot after a concert in June. After the omission, the singer’s fans spoke out on Twitter to protest her snub, with some noting that other musicians with less of a connection to television (The Voice took home the trophy for Outstanding Reality Competition Program) were included.
