His old friend and "Full House" costar John Stamos presented the honor at the Fairmont Century Plaza. His wife, Kelly Rizzo, was present at the event to accept the award on behalf of the late comedian, who passed away on January 9 at age 65.

At the event, Rizzo told PEOPLE that the honor would have made Saget very proud. She praised his contributions as host of "America's Funniest Home Videos," calling him one of the "pioneers in the reality TV world."

She also mentioned how surreal it was that he was absent, revealing that "it still doesn't feel right" but that all she and anyone else can do is celebrate him and the legacy he left behind.

HOW DID BOB SAGET DIE?

In March, police records that chronicled Bob Saget's death were revealed, and his family attorney Brian H. Bieber confirmed that the reports perfectly represented an extensive buildup of the events leading up to his death.

In his statement, Bieber claimed that Saget passed away after hitting his head during a fall in his hotel room. The cause of death had been under speculation since the medical examiner revealed that he died after suffering head trauma.

Since it was revealed the trauma came from the fall, the Saget family requested that they be allowed the privacy to mourn in peace. RIP Bob.
