I must say TBBT is the first sitcom I've enjoyed in 30 - yes 30 - years! My mother was a child prodigy and I worked at a STEM school for gifted students for 12 years - and I miss those kids - watching TBBT takes me back to spend time with those brilliant kids - and helps me remember my more than a little quirky mom! Thanks for the great entertainment! Keep up the good work and I so hope someday to get the opportunity to come to LA and watch a taping.

Though Season 8 was not my favorite season, it still had some pretty, good moments and episodes; off the top of my head, I'm thinking of the Prom Equivalency episode, the Clean Infiltration Christmas episode, the Troll Manifestation episode, certainly, the Colonization Application episode, the Leftover Thermalization, the Fortification Implementation episode, and even the season finale; all had some pretty, special moments and, certainly, typical BBT humor and laughs. I guess there wasn't enough there to get it nominated, but there were still some great high points, just like any season that had been nominated in the past. Even in an off year, TBBT is still better than most comedies on TV! I believe that if internet shows were not allowed to be nominated along with network shows, then it might have had a shot. It's already bad enough that for years cable shows have been included in the same categories as network TV, but internet shows should have their own awards, in my opinion. Last year, TBBT was the only one of two network shows nominated for the Best Comedy category, I believe. At least this year, Orange Is the New Black got placed in the correct category, instead of Comedy.

Things really need to change up for "Sheldon". He has to have some personal growth otherwise he has Aspergers. No offense to Asperger's folks, I have many friends who have this condition. But we do need to see more growth.

Amy Farrah Fowler should not break up with Sheldon! She is the best actress and the reason I watch the show is for her and to watch for her to play the harp. don't get rid of her!

Good luck! Penny's character deserves a nomination too!

The Big Bang Theory is absolutely brilliant. Much better than anything else we have in the UK - we do seem terribly short of comedy on TV at the moment. I love Sheldon and Leonard, but all the actors are brilliant. Where does Penny get her clothes? She has some lovely outfits!

I agree with Joe m, the show didn't deserve nominations for Best Comedy. In my opinion even the acting is not good anymore. The actors look miserable and tired. Maybe it's the bad writing... I don't really think Jim Parsons needs another award for this show. He won four times! How about the other actors; It's not the Sheldon Cooper show, you know. And dear B.E.L.: if you don't understand why some of us don't find TBBT funny anymore, shame on you!
