Los Angeles - The Emmy Awards always feature an "In Memoriam" segment during the broadcast. This year, many will tune in even if they ignore the rest of the show, for one simple reason — Robin Williams.
With the recent passing of Williams, this popular segment of the show is now in full focus. It was announced during a pre-show event that Billy Crystal will present a tribute to Williams. The show's producer, Don Mischer, announced it, noted The Wrap and others.
It was at last year's Emmy Awards when Williams paid tribute to his mentor, Jonathan Winters. Now, Williams in the subject of a tribute.
And because this show and others like is all about promotion, that list of presenters matter — at least to their networks and shows they represent.
Just announced was the addition of late night hosts added to list of presenters. One they are added is just as important to those who are not. Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert are in. Each of the shows they represent are nominated as well.
The list also includes Halle Berry, Bryan Cranston, Viola Davis, Zooey Deschanel, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Woody Harrelson, Allison Janney, Keegan-Michael Key, Adam Levine, Lucy Liu, Julianna Margulies, Matthew McConaughey, Debra Messing, Jim Parsons, Jordan Peele, Amy Poehler, Julia Roberts, Andy Samberg, Gwen Stefani, Octavia Spencer, Sofia Vergara and Kerry Washington.
The 66th Emmy Awards will air live from the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles on Monday, Aug. 25, (8 p.m. ET 5 p.m. PT) on NBC. It will be hosted by Seth Meyers.
