Nathan Lane finally won his first Emmy for his guest role in 'Only Murders' on his seventh time of asking.

Lane, who plays Teddy Dimas in the Disney+ show, won the award for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy series over the weekend.

Dimas' character is a resident of the Arconia apartment building. He shares it with main characters Charles-Haden Savage (Steve Martin), Oliver Putnam (Martin Short), and Mabel Mora (Selena Gomez).

The Emmy win came for the episode 'The Boy from 6B', which is shown through the viewpoint of Dimas' son Theo (James Caverly), who is deaf. In the episode, all dialogue is exclusively done through lip-reading and American Sign Language.

The 66-year-old beat Jerrod Carmichael for 'SNL', Bill Hader for 'Curb Your Enthusiasm', Christopher McDonald for 'Hacks', and dual 'Ted Lasso' nominees James Lance and Sam Richardson.

Lane landed his seventh Guest Actor Emmy nomination in July. He surpassed the late Fred Willard to become the most-nominated guest actor ever across comedy and drama.

Lane previously earned three nominations for 'Modern Family'. He also picked up one each for comedies 'Frasier' and 'Mad About You' and drama 'The Good Wife'. 

'Only Murders' received a total of 17 Emmy nominations for its inaugural season. The second season of the acclaimed mystery-comedy ended last month.

The show was renewed for a third season ahead of the season 2 finale. The guest cameo at the end of the finale will feature in the upcoming season.
