Dick Van Dyke becomes the oldest Daytime Emmy winner at age 98 for guest role on 'Days of Our Lives'

Dick Van Dyke has won a historic Daytime Emmy at age 98.

The actor was honored Friday night as guest performer in a daytime drama series for his part as amnesiac Timothy Robicheaux on Peacock's “Days of Our Lives," making him the oldest Daytime Emmy winner.

“I don’t believe this. I feel like a spy from nighttime television,” he said. “I’m 98 years old. Can you believe it? This really tops off a lifetime of 80 years in the business. If I had known I would have lived this long I would’ve taken better care of myself."

“General Hospital” won four trophies, including its fourth consecutive honor as best daytime drama. It's the second time in the ABC show's 61-year history that it won four daytime drama trophies in a row.
