Jim Parsons won another Best Actor in a Comedy Series trophy for his performance in the hit CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory.
The actor portrays Dr. Sheldon Cooper on the network’s award-winning program. Parsons’ work on the series has earned him several nominations in the past; the actor was previously nominated for the award no less than five times.
According to Business Insider, Jim Parsons wasn’t the only talented actor nominated for Best Actor in a Comedy Series at this year’s Emmys. Alec Baldwin (30 Rock), Louis C.K. (Louie), Matt LeBlanc (Episodes), Jason Bateman (Arrested Development), and Don Cheadle (House of Lies) were also in the running for the trophy.
Parsons won the Best Actor Emmy back-to-back in 2010 and 2011. After missing out on the trophy in 2012, the actor managed to outshine his competition at this year’s award ceremony. Altogether, the acclaimed sitcom earned a total of seven nominations.
The actor was quick to sing the praises of the show’s writing team for the comedy’s continued success.
“The writing is very much the linchpin of whether it works or doesn’t and what keeps (the show) enjoyable going into its seventh year. The quality of the writing and the commitment of our writers to keep it funny and true to what these characters were from Day One,” Parsons explained.
The star of CBS’ The Big Bang Theory wasn’t the only funny person who walked away with a trophy at this year’s ceremony. Variety reports that Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus also received an honor on Sunday.
However, the Enough Said star pointed out that she’s no stranger to the world of Emmy nominations. Unfortunately, she’s not exactly familiar with coming out on top.
“I’ve lost 10 times. It is delicious to win,” she explained after picking up the award.
