Henry Winkler Just Won His First Emmy, 42 Years After Being Nominated

He’s been around so long, you might think Henry Winkler’s mantle is absolutely filled with Emmys. He probably used them as paperweights he has so many! He probably just hands out Emmy’s to trick or treaters when they knock on his door for candy, right? Wrong! Even though he was first nominated 42 years ago, Henry Winkler has actually never won an Emmy: until tonight!

He gained fame for playing the ultimate cool guy The Fonz in Happy Days, which aired from 1974-1984, and Henry Winkler has been a well-known actor ever since that role. In addition to Happy Days, Winkler has appeared in what seems like every show on television: Mork and Mindy, MacGyver, Arrested Development, Royal Pains, Parks and Recreation, even Clifford the Big Red Dog, just to name a few.

But he’d never won an Emmy for any of his many, many performances, until tonight that is.
