Despite a huge season for Alec Baldwin, the breakthrough performance of Louis CK and the sentimental favorite in Steve Carell, Jim Parsons once again surprised as the winner as Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy.

It's a bit of a shock, but a huge win for the nerds and nerd-lovers who are obsessed with "The Big Bang Theory." Congrats!
