Last night, the TV world’s finest put on their best suits and nicest dresses for the the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards. “Breaking Bad” won big, and there was much laughter and celebration, but there was one person whose presence was deeply missed: Robin Williams. The late comedian and actor was incandescent on every stage, and his death continues to be mourned in Hollywood. Last night, Williams received a lovely tribute from a longtime friend.
Billy Crystal offered a heartfelt remembrance of the actor, sharing his experiences working with his “Comic Relief” co-star, marveling at the speed of Williams comedic powers, and what it meant to be his friend. Crystal’s words hit the sweet spot between funny, honest and sad and were followed by an all too brief sizzle reel. Watch below.
