The 89 year old was the guest of honour at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences' An Evening Honoring Carl Reiner event, and a host of big names turned out to celebrate the star.
Dick Van Dyke, Hunt and Lily Tomlin were among the guests who were treated to a film montage looking back at Reiner's career, and they spoke fondly of their pal, who created sitcom Head of the Family, which became The Dick Van Dyke Show.
Van Dyke says, "He used to tell the writers, 'I don't care how crazy it gets as long as it starts with credibility and it could happen.' He kept it real."
Hunt adds, "You know, he just has incredible talent and incredible kindness and it's always been the combination of those two things at the forefront of everything he does."
Reiner's Ocean's Eleven co-star Clooney presented the veteran star with his award.
The star passed away on Sunday (25Apr10) at a hospice in Bremerton, Washington at the age of 75, reports Reuters.
Her career began after she landed the title role in 1958's The Bonnie Parker Story - just three days after moving from a small town in South Dakota to Hollywood.
She later went on to star in The 30 Foot Bride of Candy Rock with Lou Costello, and played Jack Lemmon's wife in Good Neighbor Sam.
Provine also appeared in 1963 comedy It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World as well as Live Fast, Die Young and Never a Dull Moment, opposite Dick Van Dyke.
She is survived by her husband, TV director Robert Day.
