Out actor Jim Parsons took home the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for his role on The Big Bang Theory at the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards.

This is Parsons’s fourth win within the same category for the role.

Parsons recently secured a salary of $1 million (£593,109) per episode on The Big Bang Theory

Other notable Emmy winners include Modern Family, taking home the award for Outstanding Comedy Series for the fifth year in a row.

HBO’s The Normal Heart, a TV movie depicting the AIDS crisis in the 1980s, won the Emmy for Outstanding Television Movie, with director Ryan Murphy dedicating the award to artists lost to HIV/AIDS.

Some Emmy snubs include Orange Is The New Black, which went home empty handed.

The show, however, did receive Creative Arts Emmy recognition when actress Uzo Aduba picked up an Emmy for playing character Crazy Eyes in the series earlier this month.

The cast of The Normal Heart was also shut out of individual Emmy wins, even with the movie claiming four out of six nominations in Best Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Television Movie category.
