Robin Williams. What a concept.

This is how Billy Crystal concluded a funny, moving tribute to his very good friend Robin Williams, who took his own life two weeks ago yesterday.

The comedian and actor took to the stage toward the end of last night's Emmy Awards and shared personal stories about Williams, from the time he pretended to be a Russian baseball fan to the way Williams would interact with Crystal's Jewish relatives.

"As genius as he was on stage, he was the greatest friend you could ever imagine – supportive, protective, loving," Crystal said. "It's very hard to talk about him in the past because he is so present in our lives. He was the brightest star in our comic galaxy."

Crystal and Williams (along with Whoopi Goldberg) were longtime co-hosts on HBO's Comic Relief specials, which benefitted the homeless. They also starred together in the 1997 film Fathers' Day.

Did NBC Late Night host Seth Meyers fill the shoes of his hilarious predecessors, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, as hosts of the annual awards telecast? (Yes.)

The Primetime Emmy Awards are being held a little earlier than usual this year, and so in order to avoid competing with preseason football and the 2014 Video Music Awards, the ceremony is being held on a Monday for the first time in 38 years.

But if you're feeling a bit confused, worry not!

For one thing, the show is unlikely to feature anything as unexpected as Miley Cyrus' homeless date to the VMAs. In addition, we've got everything you need to no about who's gonna take home the gold tonight in the handy gallery below:

Best Drama Series: Will Win - Breaking Bad
Expect a repeat win for the final season of the groundbreaking AMC drama.

Yes, the Emmys may have switched up their air date this year, they remain the most predictable of award shows.

As expected, Tina Fey is embracing her Emmy Awards wardrobe malfunction.

Millions watching Sunday's broadcast saw the now-infamous Tina Fey nipple slip, as her blue Narciso Rodriguez dress revealed just a little too much.

You didn't expect her to care, did you? Or to pass up a chance to mock it?

In the SNL promo below, she shows that she knows how to take a joke, and that she's deserving of the Emmys' Best Comedy Writing trophy. Take a look:

It's unclear if we'll actually see Tina Fey topless during her upcoming hosting gig on Saturday Night Live, but the gag certainly played well in the promo.

Tina Fey suffered a brief but obvious nipple slip at the 2013 Emmy Awards, sparking an onslaught of Twitter commentary at the acclaimed actress' expense.

If you blinked, or aren't an eagle-eyed viewer whose goal in life is to see celebrity nipples on screen, you probably missed the wardrobe malfunction.

But it happened. Oh, did it ever.

Some might even say it was one of the more exciting or at least interesting things that happened during a broadcast derided by critics as bland.

In any case, when the comedian took the stage with Tracey Wigfield to accept their award for Best Comedy Writing, she flashed more than her trophy.

At least she of all people can take a joke. See the Tina Fey nipple slip and some of the notable reactions to this unexpected viral event after the jump:

Lena Dunham did not walk away with any trophies at the 2013 Emmy Awards on Sunday.

No official ones, that is. Yet the sister of this Girls star believes her sibling may very well have earned the title of Worst Dressed Celebrity at the event.

Responding to Dunham's bright teal Prada gown - which included an orange flower print - Grace Dunham said "it's like the Delia's catalogue made a red carpet dress."

That opinion was shared via Twitter by Grace's famous relative. Take a look.

Lena Dunham at the Emmys

Dunham clearly took a risk in not dressing joining the show's pink parade, but it was a noble risk according to one respected source.

Vogue listed this this edgy outfit among its most stylish.

Cycle through the Best and Worst Dressed Emmy stars from Sunday's show now and sound off: What do you think of Lena Dunham's gown?

Is Kerry Washington pregnant? The Scandal star's flowing Emmys dress triggered the obligatory speculation on Twitter, but is it more than just a rumor?

Kerry's Marchesa gown and its empire waist hid her usually tiny figure, setting off a frenzy of “is she or isn’t she pregnant?” from Scandal fans on Twitter.

Rumors also circulated when Kerry married Nnamdi Asomugha in a private wedding in June and - some believe anyway - started hiding her figure.

Kerry’s petite body is normally shown in sexy, curve-hugging dresses, so if she opts for a looser, tummy-hiding style, it marks a change of style.

The gown also has a strappy detail over a gold bralette that emphasizes a fuller bustline than Kerry usually has. Perfect to disguise a baby bump.
