Mayim Bialik Is 'Shocked' By Second Consecutive Emmy Nomination For 'The Big Bang Theory'

'Big Bang Theory' Star Is 'Shocked'

In a post for Jewish parenting website on Friday, the 37-year-old "Big Bang Theory" star said that she was "shocked" to learn that she had been nominated for an Emmy, yet again, for her role as Amy Farrah Fowler in the Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series category.

"I am as shocked as if you told me that ["Big Bang" co-creator] Chuck Lorre had been nominated for a Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Emmy," Bialik wrote. "Why am I so shocked? I don’t know; I’ll ask my therapist. I just am! I was certain I would not be nominated."

The mom of two said that when she learned about her nomination, her eyes "welled up." She added that she's "beyond honored to be nominated for the second year in a row."

Jane Krakowski ("30 Rock"), Jane Lynch ("Glee"), Sofia Vergara ("Modern Family"), Julie Bowen ("Modern Family"), Merrit Wever ("Nurse Jackie") and Anna Chlumsky ("Veep") are also nominated in the same category as Bialik.

This week, Chlumsky, who plays Amy Brookheimer in "Veep," said she's "proud" to have been nominated.

"I am proud as can be of everyone on this show. We have a marvelous time at work, and to know people in our community are noticing that is the best kind of encouragement. I feel that way individually, as well. Truly appreciative that folks dig my work," the 32-year-old actress, who recently gave birth to a baby girl, told E! Online.

Jim Parsons, who plays Sheldon Cooper on "The Big Bang Theory," has also been nominated for an Emmy in the Lead Actor in a Comedy Series category.

The popular CBS show has eight Emmy nominations in total, including a nomination in the Outstanding Comedy category.
