The Smartest Emmy Nomination Ever

By July 19, 2009

Follow me on:

It happened, friends. Last week, when they announced the 61st Emmy Awards nominations, Jim Parsons was nominated for the role of Sheldon Cooper on CBS's The Big Bang Theory, a sitcom about two physics geek roommates and their "normal" (and attractive) female neighbor. Picture a romantic comedy mixed with the Feynman Lectures on Physics, with dialogue that could have been written by Kevin Smith (if he were heavily censored). I like several of the other nominations (especially Tony Shaloub for his role in Monk), but I do hope that Parsons gets the award. It's a very hard role to pull off, and he does it exceptionally well.

I had never watched Sitcoms until somebody told me about this one. It is fabulous. Reminds me of my room mates in grad school…. I hope he gets it…. they all deserve it!
