Robin Williams Remembered At Emmy Awards Ceremony


(Los Angeles, CA) -- Billy Crystal says Robin Williams was an incredible entertainer who will live on. In a tribute during NBC's Emmy Awards, Crystal compared Williams to a celestial star, which remain visible and continue to awe and inspire long after they die.


The tribute to Williams capped off the Emmys' "In Memoriam" segment. Sara Bareilles sang Nat King Cole's "Smile" as viewers were reminded of the many talents who have passed away over the past year. The slide show included Paul Walker, Maya Angelou, and Peter O'Toole, as well as Lauren Bacall, James Garner, and others. The 66th annual Primetime Emmy Awards were presented in a ceremony that aired on NBC Monday night.
