Out actor Jim Parsons on Monday won his fourth career Emmy.
Parsons won the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for his work on the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory
Competitors in the field included Louis C.K., Don Cheadle, Ricky Gervais, Matt LeBlanc and William H. Macy.
In accepting his award, a humble Parsons said "there's no accounting for taste."
"Wow, oh my god, I don't believe this," he said. "To say that I watch your work and I feel inspired is a bit of an understatement."
"And this is all a long way of saying, there's no accounting for taste," he said. "And that through a lot of good fortune I stand up here tonight."
