Bob Newhart gets standing ovation at Emmy awards

Los Angeles, Sep 23 : Stand-up comedian and actor Bob Newhart got a standing ovation at the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony here Sunday.


Newhart, 84, won the best guest actor in a comedy series award for his stint in sitcom "The Big Bang Theory".

In the past, Newhart was nominated seven times for the Emmys and this is his first win.

In the run for the guest actor trophy, he defeated Nathan Lane from "Modern Family", Bobby Cannavale from "Nurse Jackie", Louis C.K. from "Saturday Night Live", Justin Timberlake from "Saturday Night Live" and Will Forte from "30 Rock".
