LOS ANGELES, Sept. 18 (UPI) -- New York filmmaker Martin Scorsese won his first Emmy Award Sunday night for directing HBO's "Boardwalk Empire."

Scorsese is best known for his movies "Mean Streets," "Raging Bull," "Taxi Driver," "Goodfellas," "Gangs of New York," "The Aviator," "The Departed" and "Shutter Island."

"Thank you, thank you so much, everyone. OK, they're counting down, so I'm going to talk a little faster," the famously fast-talking auteur quipped before expressing his gratitude to HBO, the show's writers and producers, stars Steve Buscemi, Kelly Macdonald, Michael Pitt and Dabney Coleman, and his wife and daughters.
