Trebek hosted 8,260 episodes of the long-running game show over 36 years and 37 seasons. During his tenure, Trebek was nominated for the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Game Show Host on 31 occasions, more than any other host. Trebek won the award seven times, making him second only to The Price Is Right host Bob Barker in total number of wins in the Emmy category. In 2011, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences granted Trebek its prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award.
