George Robert "Bob" Newhart tearfully holds up his Emmy. The comedian 
turned 84 September 5.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — 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.
