This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
May the memory of Joan Rivers forever be in our hearts!
However, right before the ceremony during E!'s red carpet coverage, daughter Melissa Rivers presented a video paying homage to her mother's great work interviewing stars.
"It's hard to believe it was twenty years ago that my mother and I stood on this very red carpet for the first time… My mom asked questions that nobody else dared to ask."
In fact, Rivers is often credited with first asking A-listers the now-legendary question: "Who are you wearing?"
But the true secret to her interview style was that she genuinely loved talking to celebrities!
The 47-year-old explains:
"There were so many great moments with so many of the greats… And I think the reason everybody loved talking to my mother, just like the people who sit in these bleachers, was because she was a true fan."
