Jim Parsons On a Streak; Wins Golden Globe

We were wondering if Houston boy Jim Parsons' success is still newsworthy in these parts. After winning last year's Best Actor Emmy for his role as Sheldon Cooper in CBS' The Big Bang Theory, and the series being renewed for three more years (Parsons will make $200,000 an episode with raises in subsequent seasons), it seems we just expect Parsons' star to rise.

Well, if you haven't heard, it did. Last night, Parsons won a Golden Globe Award for Big Bang, again beating out Steve Carell and Alec Baldwin.

It was his first GG nomination and award; the first of many more, we expect.

Big congrats to Jimmy P; acceptance speech above.
