Jimmy Kimmel's Emmy Tribute To Robin Williams Is Perfect

One of the most anticipated moments at tonight's Primetime Emmy Awards is expected to go down when Billy Crystal leads a tribute to his friend, the late Robin Williams.

Well, it looks like Jimmy Kimmel beat him to the punch.

While en route to Monday night's awards show, Kimmel Instagrammed a photo of himself in a tux, flashing a pair rainbow-colored suspenders. "Blue line to #Emmys #Mork," the caption read.

The wacky accessory was made famous by Williams' character Mork, on the iconic '70s sitcom Mork & Mindy.

Also of note: Kimmel and his wife Molly McNearney eschewed the usual method of awards show transportation, and opted to take the subway to the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles instead.

When Kimmel took the stage to present, he also shouted out friend Tracy Morgan, who is still recovering from injuries suffered in a car accident earlier this year. "We'll see you next year, Tracy Morgan!" Kimmel said.

And the Emmy for the most compassionate late night host goes to...
