Henry Winkler wins his first Emmy

Henry Winkler posted a selfie on Twitter Monday, showing him and his former Happy Days co-star Ron Howard at the Emmy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles.

"I only have 37 seconds, I wrote this 43 years ago", Winkler quipped after audience members gave him a standing ovation as he walked to the stage.

Then Winkler quoted some advice he got in Hollywood, saying that "if you stay at the table long enough, the chips come to you".

"I was 27 when I started doing 'The Fonz.' I'm now 72 and I'm standing right here in front of you with her (the Emmy statuette). Wow", Winkler said later during a backstage press conference.

Winkler, meanwhile, said it was "thrilling".

He beat out several strong contenders, including Alec Baldwin for his return engagement as President Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live, and Bryan Tyree Henry for FX's Atlanta.

Winkler was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award three times in his role as Fonzie, and was nominated a further two times for a guest actor Emmy in a drama for "The Practice", and another for guest actor in a comedy for "Battery Park". Winkler won a Daytime Emmy in 1995 for Outstanding Children's Special and in 2005 for Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program.
