jim parsons emmy win big bang theory Jim Parsons wins third Emmy Award for 'The Big Bang Theory'

Jim Parsons took home his third Emmy win for his role as Sheldon Cooper on CBS’s “The Big Bang Theory.” The 40-year-old actor still got emotional as he took to the stage to accept his award.

This means that Parsons is only one win away from tying the likes of Carroll O’Connor, Kelsey Grammer and Michael J. Fox as the actor with the most wins in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series. Parsons previously won in 2010 and 2011, losing in 2012 to Jon Cryer in “Two and a Half Men.”

For his 2013 award, Parsons beat out Louis C.K. for “Louie,” Jason Bateman for “Arrested Development,” Alec Baldwin for “30 Rock” and Matt LeBlanc in “Episodes.”
