The TV icon's decades-long dry spell ended with a victory at the Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, where the winners in the production categories were announced.  

The 84-year-old former star of The Bob Newhart Show and Newhart received the Emmy for outstanding guest actor in a comedy series, for his role on the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory.  It was his sixth acting nomination.

Melissa Leo snagged the prize for outstanding guest actress in a comedy series, for her performance in the FX series Louie.

The awards for outstanding guest actor and actress in a drama series went to Dan Bucatinsky, for ABC's Scandal, and Carrie Preston, for CBS' The Good Wife, respectively.

Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn shared the Emmy for outstanding host for a reality or reality-competition program, for their work on Lifetime's Project Runway, and CBS' Undercover Boss was named outstanding reality program.

HBO's Liberace biopic, Behind the Candelabra, which starred Michael Douglas and Matt Damon, scored the most Emmys on the night, with eight.
