Well, what I think is so amazing is that there are so many people who still just don't understand what depression truly is.  It is far beyond a simple case of just being sad or unhappy.  It is much deeper.  And that is something that I have been hearing/reading lately.  Essentially people have been making comments along the lines that a lot of people in the world have "sad moments" and they don't go so far as to kill themselves.  And I am a little dumbfounded by statements like that because it is so clear how little people know what depression really is.   I am not going to get into personal situations, but it gets so frustrating trying to explain it to someone who has never had experience with it in any sort of way.


Anyway, onto favorites, this has been my top 5 of his for years:

1.  Dead Poets Society
2.  Good Morning Vietnam
3.  Awakenings
4.  The Fisher King
5.  And, of course, this one -


Yes, I do own the original soundtrack on LP.  Smile

David Letterman had a touching tribute. They had been friends for 38 years.

How Billy Crystal will Honor Robin Williams at the 2014 Emmys

Robin Williams is getting the tribute the comedic legend deserves.

His very dear friend Billy Crystal will be honoring the late icon at this year's 66th Emmy Awards on Monday night.

Williams died last week at the age of 63 from an apparent suicide.

"We felt we needed to do something powerful and memorable. Billy seemed like the perfect choice," said Emmys producer Don Mischer, according to E! News.

This announcement comes after Mischer revealed last week that something for Williams was definitely in the works.

"Plans for the In Memoriam segment are in discussion," Mischer, told ABC News via a statement. "We are working to give Robin Williams the proper and meaningful remembrance he so well deserves."

Williams was no stranger to the Emmy Awards, having been nominated eight times and winning twice.

The 66th Primetime Emmy Awards are set to air Aug. 25 on NBC.

Robin Williams' Last Message Of Hope Is A Must See.

Shortly before taking his own life, Robin Williams granted the wish of a terminally ill cancer patient. One thing on 21-year-old Vivian Waller's bucket list was to meet the actor, but her condition deteriorated making her unable to travel. So one of Vivian's friends contacted the 63-year-old comedian and asked if he would record a short video to send to her. He agreed and this is the video clip that was sent to her family.

I saw that video among others. I think her husband said he didn't tell her (at least then) that Robin passed away.
He helped a lot with "Make a Wish" children too. One dad said his child was too sick to fly so he came to her. She died 2 months later but enjoyed her visit so much, when he heard of his passing, he cried for half an hour.

He did a lot of work for St. Jude too. I remember seeing his St. Jude commercials on TV, and after he passed they posted a message about him on their facebook page.

I don't normally watch award shows, just see the highlights later, but I do want to watch to see his good friend Billy Crystal give him a proper remembrance.

I watched Disney's Aladdin tonight, and did alright, till I got to the end, where Aladdin sets the Genie free, and says, "Genie, I'm gonna miss you."  Afterwards, I started searching for different info and tributes and found this. Wink  I still can't believe he is gone...  Blue

We rode the ride in Imagination at Epcot and there's a picture of Robin Williams as one of the scientists there. He was definitely a genius.

I watched the Emmy's last night, and Billy Crystal gave a wonderful speech about his friend Robin Williams. He said "it's so hard talking about him in the past tense, because he was so present in everyone's lives." bawling

I only wish his speech had been longer. They let acceptance speeches go on forever but when it was a tribute to a beloved star it can only be a minute or two long.

I didn't get to see it. Seriously?? I would have thought he'd be talking quite awhile too. Maybe he didn't feel he could handle it? I don't know. Honestly I'm thinking this has got to be one of the hardest times of grieving for friends and family---reality has sunk in by now and coping can be even more difficult at this stage. I'm sure it was difficult for so many witnessing this memorial at the Emmy's last night. No

Sara Bareilles sang, "Smile",  as the others who had passed, played through on the big screen. This video flowed right into the Robin Williams tribute by Billy Crystal.



Tribute by Billy Crystal.

Billy could have gone on forever but this wasn't the place, he needed to keep it compact. I've read so many stories about him helping others, you could write a book. I like how you didn't know either, wasn't for show.
His house was like a playground inside when his kids were small. Child couches, toys, forts in the living room, video games, etc. This interviewer said it was a breath of fresh air compared to other "star" places. In some ways, a star, others, very down to earth.
I hope he could see how much people loved him.

Wow. I'd heard of Sara, but had never heard her sing. She has a beautiful voice.

OH GOODNESS!  Make sure you look her up on Youtube.  She did the song to Disney's Brave, and at one time, was a judge on, "The Sing-Off" where A capella groups competed against each other for a record deal and cash winnings....She is very talented....plays guitar and piano, as well.... Wink

Well, that definitely has me bawling .  Thanks so much for posting those links Rhonda.

I thought the tribute was beautiful and just long enough.  I'm sure there were a LOT of women with their make-up all messed up in the audience after that one. cryB  Billy is so wonderful....have always loved him, and his and Robin's deep friendship was always apparent.  I can't imagine his pain.  The end clip was just beautiful.  

I actually did ok during the 'in memorium' clip, until they got to Maya Angelou and hearing her words, "I am grateful to have been loved," and seeing that tear. bawling  Wow, we sure did lose some amazing actors and people in entertainment this past year. No


Oh, and Rob---yes, Sara is pretty amazing. loveheart

Did you notice that they didn't include Richard Bull in the memorial tribute. He died right around the time that someone more famous did or something happened in history, I forget which. Kinda stinks in my books.

I did notice that Marilyn.....Back when they did the Memoriam during the Academy Awards, I mentioned them not mentioning him, and people said because he was television, not movies.....So, I figured he would be shown for the Emmy's, which is television.....was disappointed.... Blue Below, someone posted on the Emmy Awards Facebook Page, along with many, many others that were forgotten.  Besides my "Like" for it, Emmy Awards even "Liked" it...wonder if they'll do anything about it..... scratchead

So, I am obviously NOT the ONLY one who noticed this! That is completely irrelevant, though, whether someone more well-known also died at the time that he did, as far as I am concerned. I won't name names of some of the people that were mentioned, but they were no "bigger" than he was, in reality. And those people got mentioned. If nothing else he was a man who appeared on TV for many years (not including just LH). He deserved some sort of respect for that alone. Call me silly, but I am getting to the point where I am tired of the In Memoriam segments because they do lack so many people that should be included. They could add those few seconds. Limit the time of everyone's speech (not just those obviously selected ones who get cut off before others), if necessary, to make the time to acknowledge the people who deserve it. Show them some decent amount of respect.

I watched an episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit the other night with Robin Williams as a guest star, and he played the bad guy. It was quite interesting to see him playing a villain, when I am so used to seeing him in funny roles. There was one moment in the episode of SVU when I noticed the regular Robin Williams I was used to seeing, after his character was found not guilty at trial he said "This was fun!" and hugged the other lawyer. But other than that moment, his character was a cruel man and it was just so odd to see him as the bad guy!

I looked that episode up a few months ago, was interesting to see him in that type of role. He did play a bad guy with Al Pacino in a movie but I didn't like that one.

I will always treasure his earlier roles, especially the drama ones even more than the comedy.
Although his death will always be a tragedy, too soon, I don't agree with people who say he left us without more comedy, etc. With his dementia and Parkinson's disease, I don't think he would be able to do very much unfortunately. His last months were so sad, I hope he is at peace. I know his family with every milestone will miss him very much.
