Robin Williams Gets Touching Emmy Tribute From Friend Billy Crystal

BAFTA Los Angeles 2011 Britannia Awards - Arrivals

Billy Crystal gave a touching tribute to his friend, Robin Williams during the Emmy Awards last night calling Williams the “greatest friend you could imagine” adding, “It’s very hard to talk about him in the past because he was so present in all of our lives. For almost 40 years, he was the brightest star in our comedy galaxy. But while some of the brightest of our celestial bodies are actually extinct now…their beautiful light will continue to shine on us forever, and the glow will be so bright, it will warm your heart, it will make your eyes glisten, and you’ll think to yourselves, ‘Robin Williams. What a concept.'”
