The 2014 Emmys honored the late Robin Williams Monday night, Aug. 25, with a touching tribute at the end of the in memoriam segment of the broadcast. Billy Crystal, Williams' longtime friend, spoke about the late actor. "The brilliance was astounding," Crystal said of Williams, who he performed with numerous times.
"He was the greatest friend you could ever imagine," Crystal said. "It's very hard to talk about him in the past, because he was so present in our lives. [...] He was the brightest star in the comedy galaxy."
