Kathy Bates May Have Been Surprised About Her Emmy Win, But You May Be Surprised Who She Almost Dedicated It To!

| Filed under: Robin WilliamsEmmysAmerican Horror Story

kathy bates almost dedicated her emmy win to robin williams

This is such a sweet story!

Kathy Bates was a surprised as anyone when she beat Julia Roberts to win the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress In A TV Miniseries Or Movie, but it was very well deserved!

What surprises us, however, is that the American Horror Story actress was thisclose to dedicating her win to the late Robin Williams!

Were they secret friends or something??

Well, Kathy revealed an anecdote about her encounter with Robin afterwards, explaining why she wanted to do it.

She said:

'When I won my first major award for Misery — a Golden Globe — they didn't have cell phones and I was waiting at a pay phone to call my mother afterward and I didn't have a quarter. I turned around and asked, and Robin said, 'Here's a quarter to call your mother.'

[When I lost the Oscar] He came to me and said, 'I really wished I could have had your name in the envelope; are you OK? I know how hard it is to lose.' He was so kind to me.

I never forgot that kindness. I almost wanted to say, 'Look, I own this time and this is for you,' but I was just so … nervous'

Awww! That would have been such a heartwarming thing to do!

But we're glad she decided to share the story of Robin's kindness anyway!

Congrats to Kathy on her win!

We all knew that at the 2014 Emmys, there would be an "in memoriam."

We had no idea how many seriously talented individuals we lost this past year until seeing it.

So many big stars now only live on in their films. Sara Bareilles almost brought us to tears with her beautiful music as those lost stars danced across the screen.

Sadly, one of the biggest stars lost was Robin Williams.

Fellow comedian and good friend of Robin's, Billy Crystal, was there to give Robin the tribute he deserved.

Equal parts funny and bittersweet, Billy did Robin justice.

Check out the video (above) and maybe have a box of tissues handy.

henry rollins writes apology letter for his article criticizing robin williams suicide

We believe his apology is sincere.

Although undoubtedly his previous hurtful words may prove to be unforgivable by a lot of people.

Henry Rollins has built a career as a musician, actor, and poet because of his angry and uncompromising ways, but his ire towards Robin Williams was met with a lot of backlash recently.

Mr. Rollins posted an article last week on LA Weekly called F**k Suicide about the late actor's death by suicide, and proceeded to heavily criticize Robin Williams for taking his own life — especially since he has children.

While Mr. Rollins did praise Robin Williams for his brilliant career, he also admitted he judges those who commit suicide "with a bit of disdain."
