Monty Hall receiving award at Emmys

  • Print

TV’s Monty Hall will no longer have to explain to visitors to his Beverly Hills home that the Emmy Award in his living room is his wife’s and not his.

After doing more than 4,000 episodes over the last half-century of his iconic daytime game show, Hall is finally getting an Emmy Award of his own. The 91-year-old ex-Winnipegger is receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 40th Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards, which airs Sunday on Turner Broadcasting’s HLN.

"For 27 years I’ve had to say it’s not mine," said Hall, during a telephone interview today from Los Angeles. "It’s very nice they recognize what I’ve done in my television career but it’s not the one hole in my life I’ve been trying to fill."

His wife of 65 years, Marilyn Hall, beat him to the podium, winning an Emmy as a producer of the 1985 CBS TV movie Do You Remember Love?

Hall said for the first time he didn’t get back to Winnipeg last year for his annual visit but still wants to go home to see the shrinking number of family members.

"I still love going back to Winnipeg," he said. "It still holds a nostalgic place for me."
