Golden Globes: 'Big Bang Theory's' Johnny Galecki heard mid-email
Johnny Galecki is probably the only person in the history of Golden Globe nominees who can say he was emailing a member of the alt-rock band My Chemical Romance when he got word of his nomination for lead actor in a comedy for his role as Leonard on CBS' "The Big Bang Theory."
"My phone started buzzing," said the first-time nominee. "It was Warner Bros. public relations, and I thought they must be drunk or confused or misfiring. I did honestly accuse them of that. I really thought there was no way this could possibly be true."
Maybe that's because it's usually his costar Jim Parsons, who plays Sheldon, who gets the award love. In any case, Galecki is looking forward to the big night and whatever host Ricky Gervais might have up his sleeve. "I can’t wait. I’m such a fan of his," Galecki said. "If he doesn’t make fun of me in some way, shape or form, I’m going to be very disappointed."
Hear that, Gervais?
