Robin Williams

Wins Grammy

22 Feb, 1989

Robin Williams wins a Grammy for Best Comedy Recording for Good Morning, Vietnam. The movie is based off Adrian Cronauer, who is a the Armed Forces Radio Service disc jockey. Cronauer:

Barry Levinson, the director, wouldn’t let me anywhere near (Williams) or even the set because he was worried if (Williams) and I met, he would start to do, subconsciously, an imitation of me, which, of course, would change the characterization.
