Saddened by the absence of nominee Martin Short from Sunday's Emmy Awards, friends spoke of the actor's talent, love and "extraordinary" 30-year marriage to Nancy Dolman, who died last week.
"Marty is an amazing actor, and that's the least of his talents," Catherine O'Hara, an old friend and comedy colleague of Short's, told ET Canada. "He's such a beautiful, beautiful person. I love him so much, and I love his family, and I'm sorry he can't be here tonight."
She added: "I think you all know how funny he is. He's just such a wise old soul, and in any situation in life, he's the model of how to be. Even now."
