Emmys Plan Meaningful Tribute To Robin Williams

(Undated) -- Emmy organizers are promising a "proper and meaningful remembrance" for Robin Williams at this month's Emmy Awards. Film critic Glenn Kenny says there is no denying the impact Williams had on a generation of film and television viewers.
Emmy producer Don Mischer tells "The Hollywood Reporter" that while they're all coming to terms with this week's tragic news, they're also working to give Robin a tribute he so well deserves. Williams rose to fame playing eccentric alien Mork on the "Happy Days" spin-off "Mork & Mindy" before moving on to a successful movie career. He died Monday of an apparent suicide at the age of 63. The 66th Primetime Emmy Awards will air Monday, August 25th on NBC.
