I have really enjoyed The Big Bang and really not many comedies you can watch over and over laughing harder each time! Thanks to you all for top notch performances! You have a wonderful dynamic on screen and we all benefit from your commedy! Thank you All and yes I was pulling for the Big Bang to win all the rewards they were nominated for!

I Totally agree with the comments about Priya. The Charactor is completely out of sinc with the rest of the of the cast. This is not a reflection on the actress playing the part, but that the times in the show where she was present did nothing to add to the pleasure of watching the show.

Iam a huge fan and watch the repeats nightly...but I must say I CANNOT STAND THE SITE OF PRIYA. She was a very ill fitting charachter...no warmth or depth.

Sheldon is my absolute favourite: I would want him for my friend and I am happy he won, he totally deserves it.
