The Big Bang Theory was the main winner on the night although both Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones also had a good measure of success.
The Big Bang Theory picked up the award for Best Comedy Series with the CBS show beating off strong competition from Veep, The Middle, Louie, Parks and Recreation and New Girl. As well as the main award for the series Big Bang Theory also took home the awards for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series with Simon Helberg winning for his role as wise-cracking scientist, astronaut and inventor of the zero gravity human waste disposal system aka space toilet, better known to the show’s fans as Howard Wolowitz. If Howard tries to mention his new award we are guessing that his scientist friends will all respond by pointing out that he is still the only one of them without a Ph.D.!
The show also picked up the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, with the ever popular Kaley Cuoco winning for her role as the sexy wannabe actress and waitress Penny. She shared the award with Eden Sher who won for her role as Sue Heck in ABC’s The Middle.
