This Just In: A Gandolfini Tribute on HBO

By Jef Dinsmore on Dec 18, 2013 to The Sopranos

People_GandolfiniTrbuteHBO and a number of colleagues just cannot let the memory of James Gandolfini go. Do you include yourself in that group? On Sunday, 12.22 at 8:30pm HBO will air a half-hour tribute to Mr. G. In this special presentation, JAMES GANDOLFINI: TRIBUTE TO A FRIEND, more than two dozen friends and co-workers remember the three-time Emmy winner, who died 06.19.13 at age 51. Along with first-person reflections, the special features clips of Gandolfini’s work, as well as behind-the-scenes footage.

Surely some of the cast of THE SOPRANOS will be present and some clips from the show will be seen. VEEP’s Julia Loius-Dreyfus may also be present as she just appeared with him on the big screen in Enough Said. Incidentally, there is talk of James getting nominated for a posthumous Oscar for his performance in that movie.  HBOWatch will review the tribute this coming week. Check back.

    A well deserved tribute to an incredibly talented man. I’m pleased that he’s getting the recognition that he deserves.

      Just saw it tonight. Intriguing, interesting, honorable and thought provoking…a cautionary tale with a lovely flawed man (aren’t we all) at the center.
