August 26, 2014 Don Cheadle, Ricky Gervais, William H. Macy, Jim Parsons

Jim Parsons is one happy man!

The star was nominated for the seventh time for his portrayal of Sheldon Cooper on the popular sitcom The Big Bang Theory.

The 41 year old star beat Shameless' William H. Macy, Derek's Ricky Gervais, Louie's Louis C.K.,House of Lies' Don Cheadle and Episodes' Matt LeBlancto win his fourth Best Actor in a Comedy Emmy!

"I really don't believe this," Parsons said after his name was called.

In his acceptance speech he said, "I want to thank somebody I've never thanked before, largely because he passed away shortly before this craziness started, even though I think he was able to see it in his own way. But my father, Mickey Parsons, he encouraged me to be an actor. He never discouraged me to be an actor, and in a career that hinges so much on confidence a lot of the time, that was a really great gift."
