‘He would be so thrilled – no he is – so thrilled, so honored and especially to be honored by the critics,’ Rizzo, who tied the knot with Saget in October of 2018, said on the red carpet in a clip on the show’s Twitter page.

She added, ‘He’d be thrilled and … he’d be so, so happy, so honored and so touched and I’m just very surprised to be equally honored to be here in his place.’

Saget was recently remembered in a Netflix special that debuted Friday titled Dirty Daddy: The Bob Saget Tribute, which was filmed earlier this year at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles and featured a number of vivid memories of the late actor-comedian.

Among those featured in the special included Rizzo, Stamos, John Mayer, Chris Rock, Jim Carrey, Jeffrey Ross, Paul Rodriguez and Dave Chappelle.

In the special, Rizzo joked how Saget would show her around the famed comedy venue and show her ‘all the places that people did coke in the ’80s,’ adding, ‘There were a lot of stops on the tour about that.’

She noted, ‘The most important thing to him was belonging to this club, being a comedian. I know he would be – he is so honored right now. He would love this. I know he’s looking down, and he’s so happy.’
