Henry Winkler Wins First Ever Emmy For 'Barry'

The Fonz has finally taken home the coveted award.

After 42 years and multiple nominations, Henry Winkler has finally won a Primetime Emmy.

During the 2018 Emmy Awards Monday night, Winkler took home the award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his role as Gene Cousineau on the HBO series "Barry." The legendary actor was welcomed with a standing ovation.

"I only have 37 seconds," Winkler began. "I wrote this 43 years ago. Can I just say [what] Skip Brittenham said to me a long time ago, ‘If you stay at the table long enough the chips comes to you,’ and tonight I got to clear the table."

"If you get a chance to work with Bill Hader or Alec Berg run don’t walk," he continued. "Thank you for producing us, for creating us, for directing us and for Bill for acting with us and all of our wonderful writers."

The actor went on to thank his team and his family. He concluded his speech with a message to his kids, "You can go to bed now, Daddy won!"

Winkler’s award comes after being nominated five times previously. He was nominated three times for his iconic role as The Fonz on "Happy Days." Winkler received Emmy nods in the past for his work on "The Practice," "Battery Park," and "Who Are the DeBolts? [And Where Did They Get 19 Kids?]" However, this year was his first nomination since 2000.
