Jim Parsons: Lead actor, comedy
For two-time winner Jim Parsons from The Big Bang Theory, the Emmys never get old.
"It's impossible. Absolutely impossible. It's an amorphous every-changing organic creature every year, this awards season process. I just try to enjoy the moment. It can be so fleeting. There's so much TV. There's so many talented people populating television. I'm being very honest. You never know with these things," he says.
The actor is in New York, where he's starring in Harvey on Broadway. "I'll have an extra pep in my step tonight," he says.
Parsons and his Big Bang character, theoretical physicist Sheldon Cooper, have quite a bit in common. "Sheldon is not a drinker or a partier and neither am I. I imagine Sheldon would do some gaming. I will do the show and promptly come home and go to bed," he says.
Seriously? Not even a dinner out to celebrate his nomination? "You have no idea. I am the worst-partying Broadway actor currently on the stage. I am too young to be this tired," laughs Parsons. -- Freydkin
