The cast of The Big Bang Theory will likely take a break for Jim Parsons to present at the ceremonies. For Emmy and other award ceremonies, Jim Parsons has been nominated fifty-four times, with fifteen total wins.
Coming in second place, Kaley Cuoco has been nominated for twenty awards at various shows and won five of those. Every major actor on The Big Bang Theory has been nominated for an award, but so far Johnny Galecki, Kunal Nayyar, and Melissa Rauch have never won an award.
In total, The Big Bang Theory has been nominated for forty-six Primetime Emmy Awards. Jim Parsons has been nominated more than any of the other actors and he’s also won an Emmy for his role as Sheldon Cooper.
