Oops. Emmys ‘In Memoriam’ includes living conductor.

Red faces at the Emmy Awards today after it was confirmed the In Memoriam section featured a photo of composer conductor Leonard Slatkin whom it mistakenly identified as the late André Previn.

Leonard Slatkin is 75, alive and well and tweeted his surprise.

Slatkin told the Detroit Free Press that Previn “would have been very amused” by the error.

“He had a droll and dry wit,” he added.
