    In the slugfests and articles on GoldDerby, a lot of the editors have said that Jim Parsons has won 3 Emmys in the last 4 years. A lot of the time, they fail to mention that Parsons lost his first Emmy to Alec Baldwin in 2009. We all remember him losing to shocker winner Jon Cryer in 2012, but sometimes people are quick to forget his first Emmy nomination, which resulted in a loss. So these various articles, etc., should be stating that Parsons has won 3 statuettes in the last 5 years. I don’t know if that was an oversight, or if the GoldDerby team simply prefer to count the last four years as being notable for Parsons, i.e. since he started winning his gongs. 

    2009, nominated, lost to Alec Baldwin
    2010, won
    2011, won
    2012, nominated, lost to Jon Cryer
    2013, won
    2014, nominated (pending)

    Excluding this year’s two nods, that’s five Emmy nominations and only three wins, so he’s not unbeatable, but I still am predicting him for the win this year, crazy or not. It’s interesting to note that Parsons has lost to performances that were arguably even more laugh-out-loud-funny than his own episodes, but we’ve never seen him lose to a sentimental, darker episode like Ricky Gervais’s tape. Tonight will be interesting!

    But he has won three out of the last four, so that’s not a mistake. We all know he lost on his first try, so technically and officially he is three out of five.

    When we mention JLD, we don’t go through her whole history. We say she has won two straight.

    No, it’s a good point. We often don’t mention the first nomination. That could also be because he really had no shot of winning that year (if I remember correctly). Some thought it was even a fluke (maybe get in there once or twice). He didn’t become JIM PARSONS – EMMY MAGNET until later on.
