Bob Newhart Finally Wins an Emmy

He’s 84 years old and has been on television for nearly six decades, and finally, Bob Newhart has won an Emmy!  He wept as he accepted his prize for a guest starring role on “The Big Bang Theory” last night in Hollywood.

In the past, The Creative Arts Emmy Award Ceremony rarely made news, but as of late, it’s been big news.  My theory – with the increased number of television networks, and specifically reality shows, several awards have been added to the Creative Arts Ceremony, and the stakes are high!

Mr. Newhart had been nominated 6 times before last night’s awards, and said he thought, after so many loses, that his work was just the kind that didn’t receive Emmys.

Other winners include two of my favorites, Dan Bucatinsky for “Scandal” and Carrie Preston for “The Good Wife.”

HBO’s Liberace biopic “Behind the Candelabra” was the night’s top-winning individual program at the ceremony honoring technical and other achievements, taking home 8 trophies.  The movie is up for seven more at next Sunday’s Primetime Emmy Awards.

Tim Gunn and Heidi Klum won the prize for outstanding host for a reality or competition show, and “Undercover Boss” won best reality program.

The Emmy count so far: HBO leads with 20 awards, followed by CBS with 15 and NBC with eight.

I’ll be watching next Sunday as Neil Patrick Harris hosts the Primetime Emmy Awards live on CBS!

Best of WGNA
