  1. That doesn't make her "out of character". It just makes her "having emotions". Let the girl freak out, for goodness sake. I thought the way she behaved was very in character for her.
  2. They've been wrong before so... I don't get my hopes up for any TBBT nominations, especially since this season isn't exactly seen as one of the better ones.
  3. Yeah, I vaguely remember that. Still, the styling department could have done something better with it than this unflattering side-part. Haha yes! Fluffed hair looks cute on him.
  4. In length almost but not in style - thank goodness, cause I think S5 was the worst styled Sheldon hair. Current one is nice, though needs more scenes where it's fluffed (like whenever we have a bed scene we should have fluffy hair cause the perfectly styled hair always looks so out of place).
  5. I guess with "Sheldon hair" you mean the short style from the early seasons and thankfully that's been long gone for quite a few seasons already. I mean, he went from short hair to this weird long-ish hair in S5 and eventually they got him a better balanced combed-to-the-side style in later seasons.
  6. Latest news have been that they have the fire under control to the point that the structure won't collapse. Thank goodness. I've been following the news for a couple hours and I probably couldn't sleep tonight without a bit of good news. Let's hope nothing terrible happens during the night. Those fire fighters are doing an incredible job.
  7. It's already sold and he's mentioned in some interview that he's living in a rental for the remaining time.
  8. So much so that back in the day some ppl would ship them in real life (yeah, that... yikes) - ironically all the while Jim is gay and Kaley was in a relationship with Johnny. lol
  9. I remember the times when people were reading into body language during interviews and were convinced Johnny secretly hated everything and would be the one who'd cancel the whole show. Ah, youth! lol
  10. We're long overdue for some real Shamy fanservice - good that MaJim are reliable in that regard! haha
  11. From what I understand of the process first everyone who's allowed to (a few thousand people in fact) can send in their suggestions and then the committee is picking like 250 - 300 potential laureates. In TBBT Shamy and the rival team know their names have been sent in by two sources - Siebert with Shamy (and presumably one of the scientists??) and whoever from Fermilab with the two scientists plus Sheldon. Since both teams were trying to sway the public/science community I assume we're still in the vetting period here. So far nobody has been announced to be a proper nominee, as far as I'm aware anyway.
  12. The crux of the story is that there are 4 scientists in the run for a prize that allows a maximum of 3 people and one of them being a "faker" with a reputation of plagiarism could affect the outcome over who gets the prize, specifically here that Amy would be included. I don't know if the vetting committee would take that into account IRL (was there ever such a case anyway?) but since plagiarism is an issue in the science community they might as well.
  13. Yeah, that's what I'm picturing now as well.
  14. Yeah, he is doing the bare minimum of posting a few promotional things once a week or so but not more. So I guess he's just not into IG these days.
  15. It's the uncertainty over winning. Some people just overthink things and that can drive them a bit bonkers.
  16. Love the art and everything. This is great!! ❤️
  17. If Amy were to win it would be huge cause so few women have won the Nobel in physics. Like, she might not be the first to win but with only 3 women getting it prior the next one will be a big deal again. And it will probably always be a big deal until women winning will be normal instead of the exception.
  18. It would upset her to NOT get it. Because women have gotten so few that her losing makes it a bigger deal.
  19. I would think that this is self-explanatory for most people. There were only 3 women winning the Nobel prize in physics vs. 207 men. Across all categories there were only 52 women winning vs. 856 men. Do the maths. The discrepancy is abysmal.
  20. IRL a selected group of a few thousand people can fill out a nomination form and send it in. The deadline is Jan 31st - so the show got that right. Then after that a committee sorts through those forms and selects the preliminary candidates. That seems to be the part the story is currently in cause we don't know yet if and who of the 4 are actually nominated. It's always harder to suspend one's disbelief if you know more about the subject. See Neil DeGrasse Tyson watching anything sci-fi/space related and then bitch about the inaccuracies on twitter afterwards. lol But yeah, just as @djsurrey pointed out earlier: The show has always taken a lot of liberties with anything in the academic circus as long as they thought it serves their purpose. Yes, they made sure some random maths on a whiteboard in the background is accurate (or has neat in-jokes) and some science mumbo jumbo sounds correct but that's the extend of their fact checking. And not just since this season.
  21. They discussed the Back to the Future movies at least once very prominently so Christopher Lloyd definitely counts. And as said, I think a nice in-joke could have worked but I wouldn't want them to do that much more with it.
