On Sunday evening Tony Shalhoub won his fourth Emmy award for best supporting actor in a comedy series for his role in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

In his acceptance speech, Mr. Shalhoub admitted how he disliked long thank-you speeches.

“Like many of you I am not a fan of those endless lists that award recipients drag out with the names and the thanks and the names,” he said at the ceremony. “But in this case, with Maisel, there is no help for it. It truly does take a village. Just deal with it.”

Then after pulling out a notecard, he began thanking just two people over and over again — Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino — who direct, write, produce and created the show. He even purposely mispronounced their names a few times to the delight of the audience.

Previously, Mr. Shalhoub won three Emmy awards for his lead role in Monk. He has been nominated 10 times.

Cheering him on at the ceremony was his wife Brooke Adams.

Both are longtime Vineyarders. Ms. Adams began visiting when she was child and introduced Mr. Shalhoub to the Island after they met while starring in the Broadway play The Heidi Chronicles. They currently own a home in Chilmark.

“I think I just fell in love with [the Vineyard] instantly when I arrived,” he said in a 2014 interview with the Gazette. “I remember flying in for the first time, and that was before the airport was renovated and changed . . . just a tiny little airport.”

In the early days, he said many people joked that he was on the wrong Island, a reference to his breakout role in Wings about life at a small airport set on Nantucket.

The couple have appeared frequently in Martha’s Vineyard Playhouse productions, including I Take Your Hand In Mine and Delusion by Proxy, which was written by Ms. Adams.
