Jim Parsons Of Houston Nabs A Big Emmy Nomination
Jim Parsons, proud alumnus of Klein Oak High, UH and the Infernal Bridegroom Theater company, has nabbed an Emmy nomination.
Parsons was nominated for playing Sheldon Cooper in CBS' Big Bang Theory. According to the Hollywood Reporter, his reaction was pretty simple.
"I'll just say 'Bazinga,'" he told them.
He faces some pretty tough competition for the award.
