Jim Parsons (“The Big Bang Theory”) won the Emmy for Best Comedy Actor a record four times, yet he’s been long gone from the honors throughout the previous five years.
Be that as it may, this is the latest year of “The Big Bang Theory” after 12 seasons, so Emmy voters may feel sentimental after the show went off air in May 2019. Will he get a goodbye designation? Might he be able to try and get a record-breaking goodbye win?
He earned six straight nominations from 2009-2014, winning in 2010, 2011, 2013 and 2014. That tied him with Carroll O’Connor, Michael J. Fox and Kelsey Grammer for the most triumphs in that race, yet the TV foundation dropped him the year after his last win.
But who would have bet against Jim Parsons? And who thought “Schitt’s Creek” would finally get noticed by Emmy voters long after its cameras were turned off? And who thought the powerful “When They See Us,” which shined a light on a 30-year-old miscarriage of justice, would be hailed with over a dozen nominations?
“The Big Bang Theory,” which finished its pursue of 12 seasons recently, got little farewell love from Emmy voters in spite of being a top of the line satire.
The show won 10 Emmy Awards during its life however earned only three selections – for direction, technical direction and editing.
