“I dreamt of my career being just like this,” says Winkler. “I’m living ‘Be careful what you wish for.’”

But what the actor is most proud of are the 27 novels for children he has co-written with Lin Oliver titled “Hank Zipzer: The Mostly True Confessions of the World’s Best Underachiever.”

The Award of Excellence is an honor that Winkler does not take lightly. “I live by two words — tenacity and gratitude,” he says. “Tenacity gets you where you want to go and gratitude doesn’t allow you to be angry along the way, because sometimes this business can be maddening.”
