“Comic Relief” co-founder and good friend Billy Crystal presented an emotional tribute to Robin Williams at Tuesday’s Emmy Awards.
“As genius as he was on stage, he was the greatest friend you could ever imagine,” Crystal said. “It is very hard to talk about him in the past tense because he was so present in all of our lives.”
Crystal’s speech highlighted moments the two shared as friends and was followed by some of Williams’ most memorable moments on late night television.
A powerful moment of silence came over the auditorium as the show faded to commercial.
