Even after death, Robin Williams manages to light up the screen.

The most beautiful tribute - thanks to his longtime friend, Billy Crystal - aired during NBC's footage of the Emmy's.

I guess these guys are famous for their fast wordplay but...Wow. This is just devastatingly accurate.

We were such great friends… As genius as he was on stage, he was the greatest friend you could ever imagine – supportive, protective, loving.
It’s very hard to talk about him in the past because he was present in all of our lives. For almost 40 years, he was the brightest star in the comedy galaxy.

Check out the full tribute below.

If you find the video too emotional to watch - totally understandable, I was pretty choked up - Billy sums up Robin Williams' 'beautiful light' perfectly.

Rest In Peace, Robin Williams.
