Washington: Gwyneth Paltrow has won an Emmy Award for her guest role on the hit US musical comedy ‘Glee’.

The Washington Post reported that Paltrow beat fellow actress Tina Fey, among others, to be named the Best Guest Actress In A Comedy Series for her role as substitute teacher Holly Holliday, reports Contactmusic.

The 38 year-old actress, however, skipped the Saturday ceremony in Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, Justin Timberlake earned two Emmys for hosting a “Saturday Night Live” episode and co-writing his opening monologue.

But the night’s big winner was HBO series ‘Boardwalk Empire’, which netted seven awards, including best casting and cinematography.
