The Emmys have paid tribute to actors, writers and producers who have died since the last awards, taking an extra step to honor Norman Lear, the famous television screenwriter and producer who died last month at age 101.

The in memoriam segment paid tribute to two television actors who died suddenly: Andre Braugher, known for his roles in “Homicide: Life on the Street” and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”; and “Friends” star Matthew Perry. (Musical accompaniment, by the duo War and Treaty and Charlie Puth, included the theme song “Friends.”)

Here are other members of the television industry the program has recognized:

  • Angela Lansbury, the famous actress who starred in “Murder, She Wrote”.

  • Angus Cloud, who played a lovable drug dealer on the HBO show “Euphoria.”

  • Barbara Walters, the pioneer of television journalists.

  • Bob Barker, the longtime host of “The Price Is Right.”

  • David Jacobs, who created the soap opera “Dallas”.

  • Harry Belafonte, the performer who breaks the barriers of music, cinema and television.

  • Leslie Jordan, the comedic actor who was a cast member of “Will & Grace.”

  • Mark Margolis, who played a fearsome former drug lord in “Breaking Bad.”

  • Paul Reubens, the comic actor behind Pee-wee Herman.

  • Richard Roundtree, the prolific actor who had recurring roles on “Heroes,” “Being Mary Jane” and “Family Reunion.”

  • Ron Cephas Jones, who won two Emmy Awards for his role in “This Is Us.”

  • Stephen Boss, the dancer and reality TV star known as tWitch.

  • Suzanne Somers, who rose to fame on the hit sitcom “Three’s Company” before building a health and food business empire.
