Kaley Cuoco, the 28-year-old blonde bombshell that plays Penny in CBS’s The Big Bang Theory, is up for a Critic’s Choice Award this year for best supporting actress in a comedy series. She’s also up against costar Mayim Bialik (who plays Amy Farrah Fowler) for the same award.
Jim Parsons was also nominated for a Critic’s Choice for best actor, up against Louis CK (Louie), Chris Messina (The Mindy Project), and Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation). The Big Bang Theory actually led the comedy field in nominations for the prestigious award, nominated as well for best comedy series (against Louie, Orange is the New Black, and Veep). The Critics’ Choice Awards will air for the first time on television on June 19 at 8 pm on the CW network.

Kaley has plenty to celebrate these days along with her nomination. The Big Bang Theory just aired its most watched season finale in all seven years of the show, and Kaley and husband Ryan Sweeting just moved into their new $5.4 million mansion (previously owned by Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom).
Kaley says the key to making a place feel homey right away is pictures. “I cover all my rooms with pictures of my friends, of my husband, of my dogs. I think it makes me feel really comfortable, really at home,” she says in the video. Kaley’s former pad finally sold last week for $2.5 million (down from its listing at $2.8 million).
Kaley’s old home was her last tie to her former bachelorette life — now she’s completely committed to the married life. And Kaley and hubby Ryan seem more inseparable than ever, attending a Memorial Day bash on the beach on Monday and showing off plenty of PDA. The couple strolled on the beach hand-in-hand, took selfies, and snuggled together in a beach chair. The couple, now five months into their marriage, are proving the honeymoon phase doesn’t have to end. And why should it? Kaley, armed with her nominations, new home, and new hubby, is taking her time enjoying the good life.
