Bill Murray wins Emmy for supporting actor in a limited series or movie

It’s been more than 35 years since Bill Murray won his last Emmy, but the drought ended Sunday night when the comedian was awarded the Emmy for supporting actor in a limited series for his role as Jack Kennison in HBO’s Olive Kitteridge.

Murray, who was not in attendance Sunday, appeared in two of the drama’s four hour-long installments, based on Elizabeth Strout’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel that explores the 25-year relationship of a middle school math teacher and her relationship and her husband. Murray’s character enters the story as a local widower who forms an unexpected relationship with Olive.

Denis O’Hare, Richard Cabral, Damian Lewis, Michael Kenneth Williams and Finn Wittrock were also up for Sunday’s honor.
