'The Big Bang Theory'
September 17, 2013
The Big Bang Theory's Emmy success has been a gradual process, unlike the comedy series' namesake scientific theory of the universe's creation.
Nonetheless, the Chuck Lorre-created CBS comedy has amassed 18 nominations over five seasons despite a mere pair of Emmys, both of which were bestowed upon star Jim Parsons.
As the Academy has continued to warm up to the show over the last three years -- during which it has accrued five nominations per year – Big Bang has also been nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series for its past three seasons.
With its highest ratings ever for the past season, the show looks to be a real contender for the award this year.
