WIth his latest win, Lear broke an Emmy record — that he held, for being the oldest person to ever win an Emmy when he won in the same last year for the earlier special, “Live in Front of a Studio Audience: Norman Lear’s All in the Family And The Jeffersons”.

Also celebrating the win was Jamie Foxx, who played George Jefferson in last year’s Emmy-winning live special. This year, however, Foxx wasn’t celebrating for himself, but for his daughter Corinne, who appeared in the “Good Times” half of the special.

Foxx and his daughter shared their celebration on Instagram.

More Emmys will be handed out — virtually, of course — when the Emmy Awards airs on Sunday, Sept. 20.
