Billy Crystal pays tribute to Robin Willams at Emmy Awards

ACTOR Billy Crystal delivered an emotional tribute to his friend Robin Williams at this year’s Emmy Awards.

Crystal took to the stage following the annual ‘In Memoriam’ segment to honour Williams, who passed away earlier this month aged 63.

Crystal said Williams was the “greatest friend you could imagine”.


“It’s very hard to talk about him in the past, he was so present in all our lives….for 40 years, he was the brightest star in the comedy galaxy.”

Crystal closed by saying Williams was a “beautiful light (who) will continue to shine on us forever, the glow will be so bright it will warm your heart.”
