Emmys 2019: No major nominations for 'The Big Bang Theory' is a slap in the face of fans
Popular sitcom 'The Big Bang Theory' did not receive any acting nominations for the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards, raising the question of whether it could be the biggest snub of this year's Emmys.
Earlier this year in May 2019, CBS’s popular sitcom ‘The Big Bang Theory’ aired its final episode. The show had a run of 12 glorious years. During this time, it managed to amass an impressive 46 Emmy nominations and won seven of them. Jim Parsons, the lead actor of the series who plays the role of Sheldon Cooper won four Emmys for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series.
Season 12’s finale episode ‘The Stockholm Syndrome’ was a brilliant ending to the show. Despite all its brilliance, the series managed to rack up only one nomination for the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards. That too the nomination was for the director Mark Cedowski. The show did not receive any acting nominations, which has us wondering if this is the biggest snub of Emmys 2019.
In fact, Jim Parsons hasn’t been nominated for his role as Sheldon Cooper since 2014. Fans believed that Emmys 2019 would honor the very talented actor by bringing him back in the race. But unfortunately, neither Parsons nor any of the other talented cast members of the show will be competing for an Emmy this year.
Fans took to their social media to express their unhappiness about ‘The Big Bang Theory’ not receiving any acting nominations. A fan tweeted, “so sad jim parsons wasn’t nominated this year for #Emmys2019 i would’ve watched if he was”. Another fan tweeted his displeasure about the show not receiving any nominations while ‘Game of Thrones’ received multiple nominations. “No acting #Emmys nominations for #BigBangTheory? Sheldon's speech in the finale alone deserved a nomination for Jim Parsons. Despite a crappy final season, GoT garnered a record number of nominations. What a farce! #emmynominations #Emmys2019 #GameofThrones”.
