Ahead of the 75th Emmy Awards ceremony, which will take place at the Peacock Theater in Los Angeles in January 2024, a source says the Friends cast members will pay tribute to Matthew Perry at the event. The insider added that Perry’s co-stars are waiting on his family’s approval to proceed with their plan. Perry received up to five Emmy nominations in his lifetime, including Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy in 2002 for his role as Chandler Bing in Friends. He also received consecutive nominations in the following years for his work in West Wing(2003). The late actor may earn posthumous accolades from the organizers, but this is yet to be confirmed.
