Jim and his Emmy... it's a beautiful thing

Oh, I am the happiest fan girl in the WORLD. Last night, one of my two favorite actors, Jim Parsons, finally won his Emmy Award for playing Sheldon Cooper on The Big Bang Theory. Just watching him cover his face with his hand in sheer amazement and listening to that sweet speech made my heart flutter a million miles a minute.  I have a great group of friends on Twitter and we were holding Parsons Prayer Circles  right before his category was called. I like to think the power of fan girl prayer helped out a little!  Jim is the funniest actor on television today and this Emmy Award was well deserved and Parsons fan everywhere are proud of Jim for everything he has accomplished. Here is to the new season of The Big Bang Theory and our favorite nerd, Sheldon Cooper!!!!

On a side note: Jim, dear…. you never got back with me about being your date. Sigh… I even had a dress picked out. Oh, well…. you DO know the Golden Globes are coming up in a few short months, don’t you?  Just throwing that out there for you.

I have to admit, this was one of the greatest Emmy broadcasts EVER. From the inspired opening number with host Jimmy Fallon performing Born to Run with the cast of Glee and such luminaries such as Tina Fey, Jon Hamm, Betty White, et. al, to George Clooney working his sexy self into an extremely amusing Modern Family bit, I was entertained throughout two out of three hours. I don’t watch the mini-series, so I typically have to suffer through that section of the awards… oh, well. Really, though, the time flew by and I was laughing throughout. So I say WELL DONE NBC!

On some of the winners:

YAY to Jane Lynch and Kyra Sedgewick! Jane Lynch is a scene chewing machine and her Sue Sylvester is a demon in a track suit. I love her. And Kyra has been deserving for so long for her role on The Closer. I mean, Kyra IS the closer. She truly is the show. Bravo, ladies!

Cheers to Top Chef for one of the two major upsets of the night, dethroning The Amazing Race in the reality show competition category. It was time we got some fresh blood in the winners circle.

I just wish that would extend to lead actor in a drama… WHEN IS HUGH LAURIE GOING TO WIN?!?!?! He is WAY overdue and the episode he submitted was wonderful and character changing. I mean, no offense to Bryan Cranston, but DAMN! The only good thing I can say is that he isn’t going to be eligible next year, so my man Hugh still has a shot!

Glad to see Modern Family get the best comedy nod. They are funny as hell and well deserving of the award. On the other hand… I just don’t get Mad Men. I tried watching it. Really, I did. I just can’t get emotionally involved in this show. Well… congratulations to them, anyway, on their third straight best drama award.

On the man who should host every award show imaginable:

Oh, how I adore thee, Ricky Gervais. I have followed him for years and he was the only reason I watched the last Golden Globes. He KILLED it, last night with his bit about the booze…. and who doesn’t love a good Mel Gibson dig? Oh… and beer. Leave it to Ricky to bring the booze to the party. Can’t wait until the next Golden Globes… maybe I will be there with my date, Jim. Ya never know…

Dear Jim,

Hello. My name is Alexis-Rueal, and I am the creator of the blog Fan Girl Confessions. I discuss various topics and people I go fan-girl crazy over, and, well, you are near the very top of my fan girl favorites list.

I hope you enjoyed this year’s Comic Con. It looks like the Big Bang Theory panel went swimmingly and everyone had a blast. (unfortunately) I  was here in Ohio, so I had to rely on YouTube for live Soft Kitty and theme song from BNL; but them’s the breaks.

I want to congratulate you on this receiving your second Emmy nomination.  You definitely deserved it, and your fans are hoping that this is the year you dethrone Alec Baldwin. Believe me, there are many rabbit’s feet, horseshoes and four leaf clovers in use throughout the world on your behalf.

Congratulating you is only one reason why I am writing tonight. The other reason I am writing is to offer my services as your escort during the evening of the Emmy Awards. Of course, you could take a family member or a friend, but there are a few really groovy reasons why I would make a great companion to the Emmy Awards.

First and foremost, I am entertaining as hell. Some people might actually call me charming. I can handle myself around very important people without making myself look like a buffoon. I can handle glad handing and air kissing  (if I need), but I can also have a down-home quality too. I am southern, so I definitely know a little something about using my southern wiles to put people at ease. That can be quite an important skill in a theater full of nervous celebrities.

Second, there is nothing fake about me. What you see  is what you get. I am not a size 0 (far from it)…but I am proud of who I am. I was taught to carry myself well and I know I could be a graceful and elegant date for the evening.

I know this is a pipe dream… but I was always taught to go after my dreams– no matter how big. That is why I wrote this letter. I have a great deal of respect for your talent and find that you are one of the most genuine people I have seen. You are the type of person that people (including myself) want to get to know and become friends with.  I also know that in %99.999 of normal circumstances, it will never happen. It is still a dream worth having, though, and I want to show people that it is still okay to have those types of dreams.  And if you say ‘yes’ to my offer, it will show people that it is okay to dream big because every now and again those dreams can actually come true. That and you would be one of two who rank as the coolest friends that I have… and you can never-NEVER-have enough cool friends.

Okay, there is my offer. Please feel free to let me know via the comment form or you can e-mail me at (Ohio State alumna… gotta keep true to the school). I wish you well as you start the new season’s taping of Big Bang and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours Truly,

Alexis-Rueal (the fan-girl confessor)

I love Jim Parsons.  Let me be perfectly clear.  I.LOVE.JIM.PARSONS.

I have only recently acquired this love for Mr. Parsons; but be assured, it is a truly lustable fan girl love that will never die.

(Mr. Parsons, I presume? )

He absolutely makes “The Big Bang Theory” shine.  To see the comparison between real-life Jim (his interviews are perfect for that) and his portrayal of what could be the most pent up man on earth really drives home the amount of talent that he has… and how screwed over he was at last year’s Emmy Awards.

Yes, let’s get this out of the way, too.  He’s “make-me-swoon” hot.  Oh, my, I lose my breath and feel myself blushing when I see pictures of him or watch interviews.  The man has style… he has a debonair quality combined with the most adorable grin and sky blue eyes… I’ll be honest, he inspires poetry; and I am working on a piece that I will share with you all some day soon.

My fan girly nature has driven me to watch everything ( if I’m lyin’, I’m dyin’) he has on YouTube.  What I find is that he looks like he is the absolutely sweetest person on the planet. He is the epitome of the southern gentleman, with the wondrous manners and the charmingly humble attitude.  He hasn’t let the trappings and attitudes of Hollywood get to him, and we, his fans adore him for that.

I’d say that is our biggest prayer for Jim: stay humble.  Stay true to yourself.  Keep loving your fans the way we love you.  We are a loyal group and will follow your career with zeal.

Now, I have a goal for this web site. I want an interview with Jim. Oh, yes… I aim high. I want to do an interview that is based on questions THE FANS want to know.  I read interview after interview and see the SAME DAMN QUESTIONS time after time… I know I get fed up reading the same answers. I can only imagine how Jim must feel having to answer them time and time again. BLECH!  What I want is to ask the really important questions like “why exactly DO you drop trou in so many photos, etc.?”  Admit it… you all want to know, too.

So, there you have it.  He is king of my fan girl heaven… and I’m fine with it that way. MWAH!
