Jim Parsons says his dogs approve of his Emmy nomination for 'The Big Bang Theory'

July 8, 2010 |  1:36 pm

99115_D0340b When Jim Parsons learned he had been nominated for a second time for his brilliant comedic work on "The Big Bang Theory," he was standing in the kitchen with his dogs, Otis and Rufus.

They "wanted to pee and poop. It was just an ordinary day," he said. "They were thrilled with the news, by the way. They said I could still bring home the kibble." 

Parsons said his celebration plans were just as plain.

"Well, I just got off the treadmill," he said. "I was running. That is my version of pinching myself. I did no incline today. I'm a little off kilter for that right now."

If his character, Sheldon, were to win the Emmy, Parsons said, he probably "would at least put on that there was no other logical way to go about it," Parsons said. "I'm afraid he would drone on for a very long time about things people wouldn't understand or care about. That would not happen with me because 1) I wouldn't win and 2) I'd be too nervous to talk."
