"The Big Bang Theory's" Bill Prady credits the success of the show to the fact that he has often felt like an outsider and that most people have at one point or another felt like an outsider.
But as he stood tall and confident in a dapper tuxedo at the Producers Guild Awards on Saturday, it was hard to imagine him feeling anything remotely close to an outsider.
Prady, however, disagreed.
"'The Big Bang Theory' is all about the possibility that the feeling of being an outsider is part of the human condition," said the executive producer, who was nominated for the Danny Thomas Award for outstanding producer of episodic comedy television, which went to "Modern Family."
"It shows that intelligence is not always an asset. That's me -- I identify with that."
While the whole premise of the show is based on an overwhelming, Woody Allen-esque feeling that Prady likened to the idea that everybody "on the other train" is having much more fun, when it comes to awards season Prady is no outsider to fun. And what does he enjoy most when it comes to awards season events like the PGAs? Without missing a beat, Prady says "a drink!"
Who wouldn't want to be on Prady's train?
