Bob Newhart got the only standing ovation on Sunday night at the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards in downtown Los Angeles at the Nokia Theatre. The legendary actor was seen a couple times on the program, but this was his first time on stage. Showering him with appreciation, the entertainers from all genres took a moment to really share a positive moment.
Bob Newhart is a world renowned figure in the television industry, but the 2013 Emmy Awards is the first time he has ever won an award and it was for a guest spot on The Big Bang Theory. Known to make people laugh, the octogenarian has been in front of the camera for decades and is a fan favorite.
While the fans didn't get to see the star get handed the award last week (it happened during the Creative Emmys portion of the show) it didn't seem to matter. When introduced to the world, it was a moment of deep gratitude that got everyone on their feet.
Take a look at the video clip of Bob Newhart getting a standing ovation at the Nokia Theatre. It was a moment unscripted in television history that won’t be soon forgotten.
