The "In Memoriam" segment at the 66th Annual Emmy Awards, which featured Paul Walker, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Lauren Bacall, was punctuated by a tribute to the recently passed Robin Williams.

Robin Williams Remembered At Emmys

After singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles culminated a rendition of “Smile” and the slideshow of the legendary Hollywood actors, producers, writers and directors who passed away this year wrapped up, Billy Crystal took to the stage to deliver a touching tribute to Williams, his longtime friend and comic inspiration.

"I spent many happy hours with Robin onstage," said Crystal. "The brilliance was astounding. The relentless energy was thrilling. I used to think that if I could just put a saddle on him and stay on for eight seconds, I was going to do okay."

"As genius as he was on stage, he was the greatest friend you could ever imagine," Crystal continued. "Supportive. Protective. Loving. It's »

18 August 2014 9:53 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

We were all shocked by the tragic news of Robin Williams' unexpected death last week. As tribute to all the times he made us laugh and cry, we’ve decided to share our favorite memories from his storied career.


Any time a person who has had so much impact on so many people’s lives passes away, it is understandably hard to comprehend. Robin Williams was one of these people. He used his talents to become much more than just a comedian. He was an entertainer. As tribute to all of the great accomplishments in his career, we’ve decided to share our favorite memories. Feel free to join us by adding your own.

Victor Medina

I was pretty young when Robin Williams first rose to stardom as Mork from Ork, but I was a dedicated fan. I bought a pair of official Mork suspenders and wore them all the time. »

Robin Williams Could Be Completely Cut From His Final Film

18 August 2014 7:18 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

With the untimely death of Robin Williams last week, many movie lovers and admirers rushed to re-watch his most beloved works, from Hook and Aladdin to Good Will Hunting and Dead Poets Society. We also took some solace in that three more films of his would hit posthumously. However, Simon Pegg is now warning us that number might be down to two. The UK Telegraph reports Robin Williams may not have completed his voice work for the science-fiction comedy Absolutely Anything. The late actor's co-star Simon Pegg warns that if that is the case, Williams could be cut from the film completely. Pegg told Telegraph at the London premiere of his latest film Hector and The Search For Happiness: "I.m not sure Robin had completed doing his voice in the movie. He was doing the voice of my dog and I hope that he had completed it because »

Good news, Netflix’s very funny looking original animated show BoJack Horseman featuring the voices of Will Arnett, Aaron Paul and Alison Brie will appear on Netflix on Friday 22nd August just in time to binge watch over the bank holiday weekend.

Weinger described himself as a lifelong Willams fan who had a "Mork" doll as a kid and a poster of Dead Poets Society on his wall as an emerging actor.

Martha Thomases: Comic Without Book

15 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Comicmix news »

Last year, I noticed an ad for Apple. I mean, you can’t not notice them, since they air every few minutes. This one was special, though, quoting someone quoting Walt Whitman. I wondered if it was made by the same agency that made the Patti Smith Levi’s commercial. And I wondered why the unseen narrator sounded so familiar.

It was Robin Williams, from The Dead Poets Society.

As I’m sure you know, Robin Williams died Monday. God, I’m going to miss him

Now is the time when I would like to tell you what good friends we were, but that would be a lie. Instead, I have only loved him since the first times I saw him do his stand-up on television shows. I was lucky enough to see him perform, twice.

The first time, back when John and I were publishing Comedy Magazine (and why »

Taylor Swift Dresses Up Like Her Fans for ‘Ew!’ With Jimmy Fallon (Video)

After years of pretending to be a geek in her lyrics, multi-millionaire music superstar Taylor Swift dressed up in costume like one, too. See video: Jimmy Fallon Recreates Iconic ‘Dead Poets Society’ Scene in Honor of Robin Williams At the “Tonight” Show to promote her role in “The Giver,” Swift joined Fallon in his recurring “Ew!” sketch, donning braces and a nerdy '90s girl ensemble to portray a lonely, unicorn-drawing family friend named Natalie. She actually does more acting in the five minute sketch than she does in the Ya adaptation out in theaters this weekend — really, she has a glorified cameo. »

Robin Williams Was A Comic Genius, But That Isn’t Very Interesting

13 August 2014 8:09 PM, PDT | | See recent AreYouScreening news »

In the short time since Robin Williams passed away, you’ve probably learned more about him than you ever expected. From the wonderful story Norm MacDonald told via Twitter, to all the improvisation that became the roles he played, to his altruistic efforts throughout his life, to statement after statement that he was a comedic genius with film roles, routines, and more offered as evidence.

You can now find clips of his best roles, moments within those roles, sudden cover bits when Ted Talks suffered technical difficulties, and list after list of his best movies, lesser-known movies, greatest hits, favorite recipes, and everything else you can imagine.

I don’t usually go in for things like tributes to celebrities who die, but this one is a little more personal to me, and there seems to be part of the conversation that’s missing. Sure, Robin Williams was hilarious, almost to »

An emotional 'Ask Drew' looks back at the life and work of the great Robin Williams

13 August 2014 4:40 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Suicide is a permanent solution to temporary problems." - Robin Williams, "World's Greatest Dad" This is a very emotional "Ask Drew." This is, I would suspect, the closest you're ever going to see to me losing it on camera completely. I guess I shouldn't have been surprised when there was a Robin Williams question, since it's still so fresh and so raw for so many people, but I couldn't have known just how hard it would be to talk about him. I mean, I have stared at the blinking cursor on my blank document page for almost two days now, grappling with one question:  how in the hell do you even remotely begin to sum up someone as huge as Robin Williams? We could start from the personal angle. I could tell you about the occasional e-mails I got from him when I was at Ain't It Cool, or the »

Peter Travers on Robin Williams: 'He Made Movies Rock & Roll'

13 August 2014 3:27 PM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Most weeks on At the Movies, Peter Travers reviews whatever is hitting the multiplex this weekend, or cracks wise about the month's bad movies as he throws them into "the scum bucket." This week, however, is different: Rolling Stone's film critic puts the reviews on hold in order to remember Robin Williams, the actor and comedian who took his own life this week.

Travers starts by remembering his first encounter with Williams 15 years ago, when he was waiting for the star to call him for an interview. He found his then-five-year-old son, »

What's Trending: A Little Girl Deletes a Photo, Kids Try Warheads For the First Time, and More

13 August 2014 2:20 PM, PDT | | See recent Popsugar news »

This little girl learned the hard way that you should be careful about deleting pictures. Allison Williams dedicated her first Peter Pan flight to Robin Williams. A sportscaster in Atlanta managed to seamlessly work in 22 references to Robin Williams's films during a segment. This is what happens when you give a group of Korean schoolchildren some Warheads for the first time. Jimmy Fallon nearly came to tears while paying tribute to Robin Williams on his show on Tuesday night. He also honored the actor by referencing his Dead Poets Society character. Jimmy also took part in the Ice Bucket Challenge after getting dared by Justin Timberlake. Ariana Grande has a new music video, and it's really, really weird. One dad has a pretty hilarious reaction when his son told him to lock his door. (Warning, Nsfw language!) »

Flickering Myth writers pay their respects to Robin Williams

The Flickering Myth writing staff pay their respects to Robin Williams

Following the tragic news yesterday, the Flickering Myth writing staff remeber one of the greatest comedic performers of our generation…

Matt Spencer-Skeen: True comic genius, who transcended generations and ages. Will be missed sorely.

Vilordsutch: This man has been with me since I discovered his manic and quick-witted comedy, as a very small child, with Mork and Mindy and I’ve stayed with him (through his career) ever since. Such a sad thing knowing his mental state had given him this only option. My thoughts are with his family.

Oliver Davis: For some reason I’m pining most for Jack, Patch Adams and Bicentennial Man today. Although not his critically lauded works, worn-out VHS copy scenes keep playing in my mind’s eye. I watched all three when I was in my very early teens and each made me weep heartily. »
