Jim Parsons wins fourth Emmy award

Jim Parsons won the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series Emmy award at the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards today. This was the actor's fourth time winning the award, for which he has been nominated six consecutive times. With his previous wins in 2010, 2011 and 2013, Parsons joins a small group of actors who have won this award four times: Michael J. Fox, Kelsey Grammer and Carroll O'Connor.

The other contenders for the award this year were Derek's Ricky Gervais, Episodes' Matt LeBlanc, House of Lies' Don Cheadle, Louie's Louis C.K., and Shameless's William H. Macy.

The episode Jim Parsons submitted for consideration this year was "The Relationship Diremption". In the episode, Sheldon faces a personal crisis when he feels he's wasting his time with string theory. After some soul searching Sheldon settles on starting a new chapter in his career. With some encouragement from Penny, Sheldon toasts his new beginning, only to end up drunk and needing Amy to put him to bed. "The Pants Alternative" and "The Habitation Configuration", both episodes in which Sheldon gets drunk, have also netted the star Emmy awards in previous years.
