Jim Parsons wins Golden Globe

Jim Parsons won the Golden Globe award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series — Comedy or Musical at the 2011 Golden Globe Awards yesterday. The award was presented by fellow Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco. Parsons beat out competition from Steve Carell (The Office), Alec Baldwin (30 Rock), Matthew Morrison (Glee) and Thomas Jane (Hung) to win the award.

This is the actor's first Golden Globe award. Parsons won an Emmy for his portrayal of Sheldon Cooper at last year's Emmy Awards. The Big Bang Theory, which was nominated in the Best Television Series – Comedy Or Musical category, lost out to Fox's Glee.

I love this show; love the cast, finally a show that isnt about drugs and banging roomates or random people. Its refreshing and always witty and funny. You actually learn new things without realizing it. Keep it up cast and writers!

I love this show. A lot of the American shows we get in the UK just aren't funny. "Big Bang" has more jokes in 5 minutes than most "conedy" shows have in an episode. Great writing, great characterisations and performances, and is a show that treats its audience as adults with intelligence. I sometimes wonder, though, how an American comedy show manages to get away with so many "dirty" jokes? Maybe because it is so intelligently written that a lot of people who might easily be offended just don't get the jokes?!

This is the greatest show ever! So complete in the plot, acting, setup and etc.! Long time since I've laughed so hard and found my self captured like this... Deepest respect to the cast and all affiliated to make this series to what it is!
