    “I forgot to thank my mother and she was in the audience,” he said. “Even the therapist went, ‘Get out!’ That was rough for the next few years. [Mom voice] ‘You came through here [points to his pants]! How’s the award?’”

    I think he’s the only man who can accept an award and do standup comedy at the same time...

    I wrote this after the death of Robin Williams, August 2014.
    I laughed so much I cried
    I laughed so much I nearly died
    It was all too much
    It was all too little too late
    The demons that haunted you at night in bed
    Was the emptiness in your head and not your soul
    All those years lost searching
    For redemption from prying eyes not knowing
    That this clown
    Was burdened by an unimaginable dark cloud
    The loss of your dearest departed friend
    Didn't mean it signaled the end
    But it did steal something
    And left a remarkable gift so amazing and profound.
    When on one hand it took, the other you received and gave
    It was not enough to silence the millions of critics in your mind
    Why didn't we spot you were running out of time?
    I laughed at an Alien called Mork
    From a planet called Ork
    My heart blead for the beauty
    of The Dead Poets Society
    And how could deary me,
    Forget Mrs Doubtfire, that wonderful Scottish nanny.
    The Doctor you played in Good Will Hunting,
    Gave a tiny clue to your depth of compassion and feeling.
    But, alas the greatest character you played was the one we never truly knew.

    After you've watched that inspired, and inspiring, park bench scene in the Boston Common a few times, the remarkable thing is to step back and remember the context. You realise that, while Robin Williams's performance of that monologue is superb, it was actually written by Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. It's no wonder that he embraced them before he went up on stage to receive his Oscar, and no wonder that they're the first people he thanked by name in his acceptance speech.

    This is one of the saddest Hollywood clips to watch. Not just Robin Williams, not just his pure, exhilarating happiness now silenced, but also a young Mira Sorvino, in her prime, devastated, hiding her truth we now know against harassment claims, to see her monster thanked on stage in front of her in one of the biggest films he'd produced. Billy Crystal applauding loud and proud for his old pal - pure, unadulterated pride. How these sentiments have vaporized over time. This video is a montage of Hollywood sadness.

    When was the last time an Oscar winner 100% deserved their award? Robin Williams fully deserved this one, Anthony Hopkins is considered the definitive Hannibal Lecter, Kathy Bates was mentioned by Hopkins himself to have given "the most brilliant piece of mad acting I've ever seen" and Heath Ledger brought the Joker to a level that only Mark Hamill has come anywhere close to reaching (and of course, Mark only does the voice) but how many others earn an Academy Award through merit alone without sleeping with or sucking up to powerful people or saying politically correct things?

    Robin Williams was no ordinary celebrity...
    Over the years we have all been graced to see his work, we’ve cried with him and more importantly we’ve laughed with him.
    Robins light will forever be an eternal flame which will never go out. I’ve never met Robin Williams but on hearing about his death I was genuinely heartbroken. It felt like a family member had passed away. I think that’s Robins gift, he made you feel so happy and because of that he got our love.
    We love you Robin and we greatly miss you!
