Henry Winkler posted a selfie on Twitter Monday, showing him and his former Happy Days co-star Ron Howard at the Emmy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles.

Winkler bounded to the stage upon hearing his name and gave a break-neck speech, citing the "37 seconds' show producers were giving him. "Skip Brittenham said to me a long time ago, 'If you stay at the table long enough, the chips come to you", and tonight I got to clear the table".

"I was 27 when I started doing the Fonz", he later told reporters backstage.

Howard re-tweeted the picture and added the message: "My friend's win is so deserved and great.!"

Winkler, meanwhile, said it was "thrilling".

Winkler fended off competition from Brian Tyree Henry ("Atlanta"), Alec Baldwin and Kenan Thompson (both "Saturday Night Live), Tituss Burgess ("Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt"), Louie Anderson (Baskets) and Tony Shalhoub ("The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel") to win the award".

At 72, Winkler has had a wide-ranging career since creating the iconic role of Arthur Fonzarelii on the mega-hit sitcom Happy Days in the 1970s. Winkler won a Daytime Emmy in 1995 for Outstanding Children's Special and in 2005 for Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program.
