Inside the Nokia Theatre, there's been some notable reaction to some of the tributes and surprise wins and losses, including cries during the Cory Monteith remembrance and a few gasps when Jeff Daniels and Bobby Carnavale collected Emmys.

Pretty much everyone rose in unison, however, when TV legend Bob Newhart came on stage.

Jimmy Kimmel and "Modern Family" co-star Eric Stonestreet were among the first celebs on their feet for the standing ovation.

Newhart has had one popular show after another over the years, from "The Bob Newhart Show" in the 1970s to "Newhart" in the 1980s to "Bob" in the 1990s.

But the 84-year-old actor hadn't won an Emmy until last week when he snagged one at the creative arts Emmy ceremony for his guest role last season on "The Big Bang Theory"
