Henry Winkler finally copped his first Emmy Award win at the 70th installment of the highly-acclaimed award show on Monday night. His first nomination was 40 years ago.


But it was a reunion photograph of a decades-long friendship with Ron Howard that stayed in the hearts of fans during that night. The picture can be found below.

The well-known actor starred in the show "Happy Days." Winkler's role as Arthur "The Fonz" Fonzarelli earned him his first Emmy nomination back in 1976.

The 78-year-old also starred in "Monday Night" with Ron Howard played Richie Cunningham on the show. Over the years, the two have remained close friends.


In fact, Howard chose Winkler to be his daughter Bryce Dallas Howard's godfather. Additionally, the two collaborated on the popular series "Arrested Development."

Winkler and Howard took a selfie together at the show and the endearing connection between the two was apparent in their grinning smiles.


They posted the photograph to Twitter

"Pals at the Emmy's," read the caption.


Fans of the duo showcased their nostalgia with well-wishes, flashback gifs, quotes, and recollections of memories surrounding the two's past work together, most dominantly from the classic "Happy Days" sitcom.


Howard did not receive any nominations, but has already earned a win for production work on "Curious George, From the Earth to the Moon," as well as for "Arrested Development."


Winkler had previously been nominated for his work on "The Practice." But on Monday, he finally won the award for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Gene Cousineau on HBO's "Barry."


His competition in the category included Tony Shalhoub for "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," Brian Tyree Henry for "Atlanta," and Kenan Thompson for "Saturday Night Live." Henry and Thompson were first-time nominees.

Winkler successfully stumped out actor Alec Baldwin who was also a nominee for the award which he won last year.
