Kathy Bates after her surprise win in the Outstanding Supporting Actress for a Miniseries or a Movie category for American Horror Story: Coven admitting backstage that she wanted to dedicate her Emmy win to the late comedian, Robin Williams..

“I really wanted to say, ‘I won this time. This is for you.’ When I won my first major award for Misery—a Golden Globe—it was before 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 if anyone had a quarter to call my mom. Robin stepped up and said, ‘Here’s a quarter.’ I never forgot that kindness.”

Bates then recalled losing to Judi Dench at the Oscars in 1998—an award that Williams presented. “He came to me on the commercial break and said, ‘I really wish I could have read your name. Are you okay? I know what it’s like to lose.’”
