Robin Williams is getting a special tribute at the 2014 Emmy Awards.
Williams' longtime friend, former Father's Day co-star and fellow comedian Billy Crystal will lead a tribute to the late actor during this Monday's awards ceremony in L.A. Emmys producer Don Mischer confirmed the news today, saying, "We felt we needed to do something powerful and memorable. Billy seemed like the perfect choice."
Fans have been speculating about whether or not Williams would get a special in memoriam tribute at the Emmys following Hollywood's outpouring of remembrances and special wishes for the fallen star. And last week, Mischer confirmed there would be a special segment to honor the Oscar winner.
