Robin Williams on winning an Oscar πŸ† | The Graham Norton Show – BBC


Now not to piss on your lovely award, but Robin You won the Oscar for
-you don’t Just to hear you say that in a sentence, “not to piss on your lovely award” yes, it’s like *wow* Presumably that must be obviously a career highlight -Did it change your life? -No, for like a a week it was like “hey congratulations, way to go, Good Will Hunting, way to go” Two weeks later, “HEY MORK!” I was back being that again, so it lasted, I mean the moment they say your name when you win, English becomes a second language and I forgot to thank my mother and she was in the audience yeah, that’s, even the therapist went “Get out” that was a bit, that was rough for the next few years like “well, how’s the award?” “you came through here, how’s the award?” Elijah, you must have had the most amazing night when Lord of the Rings, what it equaled it was the most Oscar wins of all time, it equaled the record didn’t it? So surreal, it was 11 yeah, I think it was the most ever nominated and won together, yeah
-wow but then, I love this, you didn’t go to all the kind of proper, like you didn’t go to the vanity fair parties or any of that Tell us where you went theonering.net, um the fans basically of Lord of the Rings had their own party, the one ring party of celebrating the Oscars, and we went to that party and Billy Boyd – it was wonderful
-that’s great and we actually, I believe we took the Oscars there and displayed them, I think Pete showed up and everything Billy Boyd sang uh, Dominic Monaghan sang it was just a joyous, beautiful event and we ended up staying there all night. We thought we were just gonna show up and kind of make an appearance and thank everyone for having a great party in our honour, and it was the best. We just stayed
-and there’ll be a video tape later called ‘Hobbits Gone Wild’ “YO GIVE IT UP HOBBIT BOY, BOY, BOY, BIG FEET MOVE IT ON!!” It was a beautiful night because we felt like we, I mean they were celebrating this thing with us, and you know so many of the people who were a part of making the films were there at the Oscars that night
-Oh it was huge
-and it was a big family. You know, we were celebrating as a family, it was beautiful And was it at the Oscars or, no, the Golden Globes I think where you were, was it Jack Nicholson?
-backstage, yeah -were you waiting to go on with Jack Nicholson?
-I was waiting to go on to present an award, Jack was back there – yeah, this is good Jack was back there, and Dustin Hoffman was back there and um somehow Lord of the Rings came up in conversation and he stood there and he said “you know…” -I can’t do a Jack impression
-oh you can do it, no, go -I can’t, I won’t, I actually won’t do it because you’re too good but he basically said “you know, that movie… “…it just had so many endings” He was like “it just wouldn’t end” and he said to me that he actually walked out before the end he said – oh that’s how it started – he said “what happened?” and I said “Jack, what do you mean – what do you mean what happened?” He said “well tell me what the end was” and I said “well you know at the end, uh, the hobbits are saying goodbye to each other, and Frodo gets on the boat and sails into the undying lands.” He said “I didn’t even see it, I walked out before the end” So he was basically complaining that there were just too many endings to the film
-Drugs wore off, that’s what happened
-Amazing “I have to go outside for a little medication” When I won my Academy Award he was there, he won, this was his third Academy Award. We’re standing backstage because they’re just about to take you to the press conference and he goes “You know Robbo, now I have one for every decade” I’m like “You bastard!”

  1. Robin Williams seems so comfortable around Elijah Wood. I mean everyone loves Elijah Wood. I also really miss Robin Williams.

  2. As a comedian, watching Robin Williams do comedy or tell jokes is absolutely heartbreaking.
    Ask anyone who has ever done comedy and unanimously they will all tell you that they don't envy the comedy legends, and wouldn't wish it on themselves. A lot of times humor is a coping mechanism for trauma/abuse and/or mental illness, so the better they are the more serious the mental illness, or the more trauma they've been through.

  3. Robin Williams is still one of my most favorite actor. Not to mention how hard it is to come from a comedic background.

  4. In fair honesty I did walk out of TLOTR II, waaaaay too long no idea what was going on (didn't watch the I).

  5. Robin Williams is truly a living legend man, no matter who comes or goes, He will be the one and only Genie for us.

  6. I also bailed on the ending..it was driving me nuts…so Jacks not the only one who doesnt know what happened.

  7. I would take 1 robin over 3 jacks any day of the week and twice on sundays why because I’m greedy. Lol.

  8. Knowing what we know now it's distressing to see, from an armchair quarterback's point of view, the demons that are eating at him. He wants to have fun but then he gets a faraway look. So sad.

  9. Reading comments: "so sad he passed away"
    nodding in agreement
    Reading small letters under comment: "4 years ago".
    Gasping because it really has been that long

  10. Don't know why this clip is so adictive for me, it's like a good song, I find myself comig back for it over and over again, from time to time…

  11. The Oscars were on display at the TheOneRing.net party…
    Can you imagine the the good nerds and the bad 'sticky fingered' nerds facing off?
    Bad Nerd: looks at oscar Myyy precious…
    Good Nerd: Touch it and I'll rip every last collectors item you have out of its original package…
    Bad Nerd: Hissssss!!

  12. I hope deep down he knew how happy he made the world, even if the world couldn’t make him happy! Rest in peace you absolute legend!
