The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards 2020 honored a number of stars who passed away this year.

However, a handful of notable icons were left out during the award show’s in-memoriam segment, like NBA champ Kobe Bryant, actors Kelly Preston, Sam Lloyd, and Broadway star, Nick Cordero.

As a number of people were pondering upon the TV Academy’s exclusion of the icons, actor Zach Braff turned to Twitter and gave an explanation.

He also dropped a statement that he received from the TV Academy as well.
