If you’ve kept up with The Big Bang Theory Season 11, it’s clear why Mayim Bialik was nominated and why she won. The character has really taken shape over the years, as she is both charming and funny.

At first, Amy Farrah Fowler was similar to Sheldon Cooper, someone who also did not want love, but wanted to please her mother. Eventually, the character shifted to someone who completely adored her man.

At the end of Season 10, Sheldon proposed to Amy. Since then, she’s said “Yes” to her boyfriend. After the proposal, it would appear that Amy has had the best time of her life. In addition to her upcoming wedding, her best friend Penny finally confirmed that the duo are actually best friends.
