Henry Winkler, the famous 'Fonzie' from "Happy Days," finally saw his hard work pay off after being awarded his first Emmy.


The Emmy ceremony took place on Monday night, September 17, 2018, at the Microsoft Theater in Downtown Los Angeles, California, and was hosted by Michael Che and Colin Jost.

As reported by Variety, Winkler managed to the 2018 Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor for his role as Gene Cousineau on HBO's "Barry."

The 72-year-old actor couldn't believe his ears when he heard his name being announced and took the stage while saying 'Oh my God' several times in a row. Follow us on our Twitter account @amomama_usa to learn more.



Winkler, who has two Golden Globe Awards and a few nominations for his part in "Happy Days", as well as two Daytime Emmys, couldn't contain his excitement and joked that he wrote his speech '43 years ago.'


According to him, he was once told that if he stayed long enough at the table, the chips would eventually come to him and that he managed 'to clear the table' that night.



After caressing his Emmy award throughout his thanking speech, he closed it with a shout-out to his children, Max and Zoe: 'You can go to bed now, daddy won!'


But Winkler was not the only one over the moon with the results. Alec Baldwin also took home the Emmy for Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Donald Trump on "Saturday Night Live" in 2017.


Plus, not only did the famous actor take home the prestigious award, but he also had the honor of introducing Betty White, who stepped on stage to deliver a little speech.

The television legend, age 96, was received with a standing ovation and took the opportunity to thank everyone in attendance for 'putting up with her' after so many years, always in that same funny tone that she has become known for.
