Phew! I thought I missed the Emmy's! The first round of "smaller" creative awards were handed out over the weekend, but no worries, the big show is this Sunday night!
From the Associated Press:
Bob Newhart, among TV's most enduring stars with shows stretching back more than five decades, wept as he finally captured his first Emmy Award.
Newhart, 84, was honored at Sunday's creative arts Emmy ceremony for his guest role last season on "The Big Bang Theory" as Professor Proton, a down-on-his-luck former host of a children's science show.
"This is my seventh shot at this. ... I just love this very much," he said, gazing tearfully at the trophy in his hand as the audience gave him a standing ovation.
Newhart's long TV history includes the 1970s "The Bob Newhart Show," ''Newhart" in the 1980s and "Bob" in the '90s and six previous nominations. His 1961 variety series "The Bob Newhart Show" earned a writing bid.
Backstage, Newhart said at one point he'd given up submitting his name for Emmy consideration.
"I just felt the kind of stuff I do doesn't win awards. I didn't want to go through the process, the disappointment," he said.
In addition to Newhart, other winners for guest turns included Melissa Leo for the sitcom "Louie" and, on the drama series side, Dan Bucatinsky for "Scandal" and Carrie Preston for "The Good Wife."
With eight statuettes, HBO's Liberace biopic "Behind the Candelabra" was the night's top-winning individual program at the ceremony honoring technical and other achievements. The movie will compete for seven more nominations at next Sunday's Primetime Emmy Awards.
Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn of "Project Runway" won for outstanding host for a reality or reality-competition show, and "Undercover Boss" for outstanding reality program
Lily Tomlin received the trophy for best voice-over performance for her narration of "An Apology to Elephants," a documentary about the treatment of captive elephants.
Netflix's "House of Cards," the first online program to compete for top drama series honors, picked up trophies Sunday for casting and for cinematography for a single-camera series.
HBO earned a leading 20 awards, followed by CBS with 15 and NBC with eight.
Neil Patrick Harris will host next Sunday's ceremony airing on CBS.
