LOS ANGELES (AP) — Alex Trebek received a standing ovation as he accepted an Emmy Award for “Jeopardy!”

Trebek, who announced in March he has advanced pancreatic cancer, said he’d worried about winning as best game show host.

He was concerned that sympathy might play a role in voting, he said, when contenders should be judged on the merits of their work.

But Trebek recalled that he lost last year __ after he had major surgery for life-threatening blood clots.

Since that didn’t get him a sympathy vote, the 78-year-old Trebek said he can live with the honor.

It’s his seventh Daytime Emmy, including a 2011 lifetime achievement award.

Trebek received a warm welcome from the theater audience earlier Sunday evening, when he presented a trophy.
