Bill Murray, best known for his roles in classic movies like "Meatballs" and "Ghostbusters", celebrates his 65th birthday on 21 September. This birthday couldn't get better for Murray as he won an Emmy for 'Outstanding Actor in a Limited Series or a Movie' on the day.

Murray won the award for his role in the four-part mini series "Olive Kitteridge", which is based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel.

The veteran actor was up against Damian Lewis ("Wolf Hall"), Richard Cabral ("American Crime"), Finn Wittrock and Denis O'Hare ("American Horror Story: Freak Show").

However, this is not the first time that Murray has won an Emmy. He won his first Emmy Award in 1977 as part of the "Saturday Night Live" writing team.

Murray was not present at the ceremony on Sunday night, hence, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Live Schreiber accepted the award on his behalf at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

Besides "Meatballs" and "Ghostbusters," some of Bill Murray's best known works include "Caddyshack", "Groundhog Day", "The Life Aquatic", and most recently, "St. Vincent".

Before becoming famous, Bill Murray worked as a golf caddy to fund his high school education. Afterwards, he took pre-med courses at Regis University in Denver but eventually dropped out.
