Congrats to Bob Newhart on his first Emmy Award!
He was nominated for his guest role on The Big Bang Theory as Professor Proton…who was a hero to Sheldon and Leonard in their childhood.
This episode aired as a re-run not too long ago (new to me) and I thought it was fantastic from beginning to end, especially Mr. Newhart’s role. So to find out he won an Emmy for this appearance makes me super happy!
Here’s a clip of the episode-
Now what I don’t get is why Bob hasn’t gotten an Emmy Award before this? I guess better late than never!
