Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

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.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
