Fans of “The Big Bang Theory” know how excellent actor Jim Parsons is as the comic-loving, genius, Caltech theoretical physicistÂ character Dr. Sheldon Cooper … and now the rest of the world knows, too!
Parsons won for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series on Sunday night at the 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards (beating out longtime winner Alec Baldwin of “30 Rock” and new contenderÂ Matthew Morrison of “Glee.”)Â Â Parsons was nominated last year, but did not win, and I felt he was robbed.Â So when he was nominated again this year, I held out hope once again that he would win … and this time he did!
This is no “Bazinga!” (Sheldon’s catchphrase on the show when he pulls a prank.)Â Jim Parsons actually won, and I am happy that a show I watch and a character I adore was honored so highly at the Emmy Awards.
Now, we need to get some supporting character Emmy nominations for the cast! OK, I’ll take what I can get for now.
For those who need the details, “The Big Bang Theory” has moved to Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on CBS (no longer part of the Monday lineup come this fall.)Â The season four premiere is set for September 23, 2010.
And now for a classic quote from the great Dr. Sheldon Cooper:
“I’m not insane, my mother had me tested!”
