Last night’s Emmy Awards were pretty awful from start the finish, as per usual, but there were some highlights. One of the biggest of those was the In Memoriam to Robin Williams, which was presented by his longtime friend and colleague, Billy Crystal. It was moving, funny and not overwrought, which is always a danger in awards show tributes.

You can watch the full thing below – it’s clear that so many loved, admired and will greatly miss Robin Williams.

Robin Williams’ ashes have been scattered at sea

Following his death earlier this month, it’s been revealed that Robin Williams was cremated and his ashes were spread at sea almost immediately.

From TMZ:

Robin Williams’ body was cremated the day after he died … and his ashes were scattered in San Francisco Bay … this according to the official death certificate.

The document — issued in Marin County where he died — does not list an immediate cause of death … instead it merely says, “pending investigation.”

The coroner is still waiting for the results of toxicology tests … to see if Williams had any chemicals in his body when he died. Those results will be available in the next few weeks.

That must have been the peaceful ending he would have liked.

In other news, Billy Crystal will be presenting a special tribute to Williams at this year’s Emmy Awards, which will take place next month. The pair had been friends for decades, so no doubt it will be a fitting memorial.
