My Peterio Awards (Part Six: Best Actor In A Comedy Television Series)


It took awhile for me to recognize how much work Jim Parsons puts into his asexual Sheldon Cooper in CBS's 'The Big Bang Theory' mainly because his portrayal can be viewed as simple slapstick at first glance. But as you continue to watch Sheldon go through countless unapologetic social awkwardness, you can't help but see how much warmth Parsons puts into a character that seems cold and heartless on paper. Along with his impeccable comedic timing, I wonder how much longer will it be before the mainstream audience catch on to his menacing genius. Just watch the hug....

Other Notable Nominees: Alec Baldwin & Jack McBrayer ('30 Rock'), Neil Patrick Harris ('How I Met Your Mother'), Lee Pace ('Pushing Daisies') & Jonny Lee Miller ('Eli Stone')
