Watch Billy Crystal's Moving Tribute to Robin Williams at the Emmys

David, Don Pardo, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Sid Caeser and Mickey Rooney among them.

His longtime friend Billy Crystal delivered his industry eulogy, closing with a sentiment that captures how millions of people felt about the beloved comedian: "Robin Williams, what a concept!"
