Emmy tribute for Robin Williams
August 22 , 2014
Actor and comedian Billy Crystal will present an Emmy tribute to Robin Williams who was found dead on August 11 in his home.
The announcement was made by Don Mischer, the executive producer, who had earlier said that the award function would pay a “proper and meaningful” tribute to the 63-year-old actor.
Williams is believed to have committed suicide. According to his widow, though he was sober at the time of his death, he was battling anxiety, depression and possibly an early stage of Parkinson’s disease.
