With the Best actor & Best actress award this year, the win for Best Comedy seemed inevitable for the CBS comedy about a group of nerds and their girls. As the show has developed & matured, its gone from a group of brilliant nerds (Jim Parsons as "Sheldon Cooper", Johnny Galecki as "Leonard Hofstadter", Kunal Nayyar as "Raj Koothrappalli" and Simon Helberg as "Howard Wolowitz") and 1 girl ( 2011 Best Comedy Actress Kaley Cuoco as "Penny") to a group of nerds and 3 girls, as the additions of this years Best Comedy Actress Mayim Bialik as "Amy Farrah Fowler" & Melissa Rauch as "Bernadette Rostenkowski-Wolowitz" have rounded out an already talented cast even more. Runner up this year is the NBC comedy about people at a Community College "Community". Despite their network screwing with them purposely repeatedly, the fans of the show keep demanding more & show it over & over again by making their voices heard on the internet, here being no different. The runner up last year "How I Met Your Mother" finished 3rd this year as the series starts to wind down. Comedy crime solvers from "Psych" nabbed 4th, ahead of the popular ABC comedy "Modern Family".
"The Big Bang Theory" beat runner up "Community" by 147 votes, 3rd place "How I Met Your Mother" was narrowly beat out for 2nd by just 4 votes, while beating 4th place "Psych" by 59 votes. Rounding out the finalists was "Modern family" 11 votes back
The Big Bang Theory wins the 3rd consecutive honour & sweeps this years Comedy categories with Best actor (Parsons) & actress (Bialik) giving them 6 total Comedy honours in the 3 years of these awards (10- Best comedy show, 11 - comedy show, actress, 12- comedy show, actress & actor). Modern Family was the only finalist to not be a finalist last year. Community has moved up 1 spot each year from 4th to 3rd to 2nd.
