Robin Williams

Wins Golden Globe

27 Jan, 1979

Williams wins a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor In A Television Series – Comedy Or Musical for Mork and Mindy

(Mork) came from Garry Marshall’s kid who saw Star Wars, and he went to his father and said, “Dad, why can’t they have an alien on ‘Happy Days’?” And Garry was like, “I don’t know, it will be weird.” But I think he did it as kind of a shout out to his son, as a one-off thing, and, I guess, just because it was so strange.
