The Oscars has its “In Memoriam” montage to honor those we lost over the past year. And now, apparently the Emmys have the same for shows that ended their runs. But while it’s one thing to honor figures like David Letterman and Jon Stewart on the end of their late night careers, it’s quite another to literally spoil the endings — including some big deaths — of every drama that wrapped during the 2014-2015 season.
People on Twitter are NOT happy:
Wow. Spoiler alert.

By the way… Spoiler Alert if you were watching Sons of Anarchy, Nurse Jackie, Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire etc… #Emmys

That spoiler-y montage was just the Academy's sneaky way of screwing Netflix

You could argue the MAD MEN ending was not as harmful a spoiler as BOARDWALK EMPIRE's but that's an argument that MAD MEN was a better show.
