HBO’s Olive Kitteridge is cleaning up at the 2015 Emmys.

Bill Murray won the award for outstanding supporting actor in a limited series or movie for his role in the four-part miniseries, based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel.

Murray, 64, was up against Richard Cabral in American Crime, Michael Kenneth Williams in Bessie, Damian Lewis in Wolf Hall, Finn Wittrock and Denis O’Hare, who both starred in the FX hit American Horror Story: Freak Show.

The veteran actor won his first Emmy in 1977 as part of the writing team on Saturday Night Live.

Murray could not be at the show Sunday night, so presenters, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Live Schreiber accepted the award on his behalf at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

Fox aired the 2015 Emmy Awards, hosted by Andy Samberg, live on Sept. 20.
