Hollywood's favorite television nerd (and UH and Klein Oak High graduate) Jim Parsons won his second Emmy last night for his performance as Sheldon Cooper in The Big Bang Theory.
Parsons accepted his Emmy from America's favorite trainwreck, Charlie Sheen. "This is so odd for so many reasons," he said, laughing.
Another Houstonian in the crowd was Mireille Enos, who was nominated for outstanding lead actress in a drama series for her work as Sarah Linden on The Killing. Enos attended HSPVA before heading out to Brigham Young University and then New York City, where she was eventually nominated for a Tony for a revival of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
