  • Actor Henry Winkler finally wins an Emmy after waiting 42 years

Happy Days legend Henry Winkler scooped his very first Emmy last night, and the words he used to accept it were particularly special.

He won the gong for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his role of acting coach Gene Consineau on the comedy series Barry.

Winkler bounded to the stage upon hearing his name and gave a break-neck speech, citing the "37 seconds' show producers were giving him".

"Tonight I got to clear the table", he said.

FEMA boss defends Donald Trump’s denial of Hurricane Maria death toll figures
He said: "When I left the Island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths". Sounds like he's splitting more hairs than 45 - but he's clearly on Trump's side in this.

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". His character Arthur "The Fonz" Fonzarelli spawned a cultural craze and made him one of the biggest stars on TV.

He expressed wonder at the win and the path his life and career have taken, saying he dreamed of being an actor when he was 7- years-old living in New York City "with short German Jewish parents who did not want me to be an actor".

"I was 27 when I started doing the Fonz", he later told reporters backstage. "I'm now 72 standing in front of you with her [he points to Emmy]".
