Instead of just focusing on Robin Williams' tragic death, we'd like to highlight some of the great moments of his extraordinary life.
Like, for example, when he won the 1998 Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for his performance in Good Will Hunting. Williams seemed genuinely surprised when Mira Sorvino called his name, and while making his way to the stage, shared a quick moment with Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, who wrote and co-starred in Good Will Hunting.
"This may be the one time that I'm speechless," Williams, visibly emotional, told the audience. "Thank you so much for this incredible honor. Thank you for putting me in a category with these four extraordinary men." Williams' fellow nominees were Robert Forster (Jackie Brown), Anthony Hopkins (Amistad), Greg Kinnear (As Good as It Gets) and Burt Reynolds (Boogie Nights).
