Catalogue Note

When Williams was presented with his award at the 5th Annual People's Choice Awards, Christopher Reeve — a former classmate at Julliard — described him as having been voted the "least likely to succeed" before declaring his delight in having been proved wrong.

At the time, Williams was enjoying the early days of his success playing Mork from Ork on Mork and Mindy (ABC, 1978-1982). During his acceptance speech the bemused actor remarked: "I never believed that I would get paid to be this silly, but it's incredible."
