    I enjoyed the part where he got to hug his buddy Billy Crystal. I also felt the same way when Spike Lee won his own Oscar & Spike got to embrace his buddy Samuel L. Jackson. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

    From the greatest heights an actor can achieve to the depths of suicide that no one anticipated. Let us take each day as a gift and hope that those in despair and anguish can be reached before they perform a final tragedy.

    I can’t believe that guy from β€œas good as it gets” was nominated for an Oscar. That’s like every other character now a days.

    A much happier moment for Robin. [Not so happy for Burt though. But that's understandable] Sad that they are both now gone.

    Each time when I'm desperate and sad and am in need to see how the real human kindness looks like, I go look for and watch videos of Robin Williams. And especially this clip. And every time I'm completely blown away by seeing how all of those people wholeheartedly loved him and were happy from his winning. It must feel good when you are truly and deeply loved and respected by so many people. Amazing. But you were amazing personality, Robin! I β™₯ you from the bottom of my heart forever! And thank you, for every smile on my sad face, sir. You movies and your wisdom are like gifts to the humankind.

    I love Robin Williams I truly do, but i think Robert Forster deserved it more than anyone EVER? Every performance he's ever given was great, but especially the scene in "Alligator" when his rookie partner if being pulled into the sewer by the alligator!

      Yeah because they never used the Oscars in the 90s to promote gay rights or black rights for that matter LOL were you even alive in the 90s? I was a child and I remember seeing gay people on the screen for the first time on TV and in movies. As well as a lot of African-American actors getting the recognition that they deserve for the roles unlike 20 years before. But what do I expect from another dumb hick that just got the internet 🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣

    Robin deserved an Oscar long before this; I didn't even enjoy "Good Will Hunting" that much. But I'm glad the Academy members finally decided to honor him.

    I've said many times over the years, Robin Williams was one of the best actors of our generation, and he simply didn't get the credit he deserved, because everyone just saw him as a comic.

    Robin was not just a zany guy. He was erudite, cosmopolitan, and philosophical. A true mensch. He was truly humble and full of gratitude. His embrace of Billy Crystal was a joyous recognition of brotherhood. Well deserved.

    It Should've been His 2nd One. He Should've ALSO Won Best Supporting Actor For "Awakenings" And Robert DeNiro Should've Won Best Actor For The Same Movie Instead Of Jeremy Irons.

    imo he deserved Oscar for The Fisher King, the academy is slow to catch up, or whatever their problem is. He deserved an Oscar many years b4, for all the films he's been in. Burt Reynolds in Boogie Nights, a nominee, seriously?!?!? Robin should have more than just 1 Oscar, for everything he's done here on earth, and continues to do from afar (my life being an example)

    He was a true comedic, method actor genius at his craft............all the best ones seem to fade away to quick sadly.
    To make people laugh is a tough gig, but Robin made it look so easy funny man.

    After learning of Robin's death I remember how I watched this movie and how he was able to dig deep down into his soul and give such an unbelievable performance. It was then I realised that my initial thoughts about him in this movie were correct. When at times you see him poor it all out and really bare all for everyone to see. He wasn't acting. It was real life to him.
