Emmys: Billy Crystal to pay tribute to Williams
August 21, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Billy Crystal will pay tribute to Robin Williams, his longtime friend and fellow comedian, at next week’s Emmy Awards.

Crystal will honor Williams as part of the traditional “in memoriam” segment for industry members who died during the past year, Emmy executive producer Don Mischer said in a statement Wednesday.

Mischer said the memorial segment during Monday’s ceremony will include a performance from Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles.

Williams was found dead in his Northern California home on Aug. 11.

At last year’s Emmys, Williams honored his friend and mentor Jonathan Winters during the tribute segment.

The Emmy Awards will be broadcast by NBC.
