  1. I do say nominations mean something, not everything but definitely something. And thing is, I don't think any of them is a better actress than the other, and actually, from what I've seen of them none of them strike to me as a an all-round actress, but, in they other hand, they both are, in my opinion, terrific comedic actresses who are perfect for the roles they respectively play at TBBT. So, nominations (which you had firmly insisted mean nothing as to who is a better actor) can nonetheless become a valid measurement point as long as someone has at least two of them for two very diff
  2. Thanks I replied to you because your answer to the poster who mentioned the noms was literally "Which really means nothing", because my main point was that, albeit not everything, nominations do mean something. Since you and me agree that noms and awards are a combination of an actor and a character at the right moment, don't you also agree with me that Mayim's nominations were deserved because she got the right character at the right moment and mainly because she played it greatly, or do you think those were undeserved? Perhaps for the same reason you immediately jumped to exp
  3. But all good actors/actresses are nominated/awarded for every character they play, otherwise their nomination or win are merely a lucky strike or the result of Hollywood's whim? While I agree nominations or awards are not by any means the one and only reference to measure an actor's ability, of course they have to mean something! if anything, the serendipitous combination of a good performer and a particular character in the right place and the right moment. Because every time Mayim's nominations come up, the same old "noms mean nothing" excuse come up as well, also that she only got
  4. Sorry, but the Sheldon's stalker's role had always been Ramona's. Amy was created and developed to be Sheldon's soulmate, as outrageous or disgusting that could result to some sensibilities. And regarding Shamy taking the place of the main couple, well, since Sheldon had overpowered the whole show, it's only logical that his own personal/love story is also the one getting more attention and screentime. I'm not saying that's right or fair, but that's how things are right now.
  5. So, Penny has even less self-respect then?, I mean, she married Leonard right after he confessed kissing someone else....
  6. Not that strange, remember she is supposed to be at Princeton.
  7. Ok, I see your point, however, my memory could be failing me, but, as I recall, there was not much of an uproar with the Vanessa thing, I even remember some were supporting him, I do remember my own uprage, not precisely because I wanted him to suffer or to be a sobbing mess, but because I found it infuriating that while Amy's only choices were freaks, TPTB gave Sheldon in his first intent and not really trying an actual model!, who was also brilliant and into geeky stuff, like, really? Leaving that aside, I'm not a fan at all at the way the break up was handled back then, partly because
  8. This is a good point, what if Sheldon's "cheating" is something work-related? I mean, I would hate for it to happen, but what if Sheldon gets "carried away" while discussing physics with Ramona and she ends up inserting herself in the Fowler-Cooper collaboration?
  9. I'm sorry, you mean among the fandom "no one" had any problem with Amy going on dates? really? Don't you remembr how she was almost hated by a good part of the shipperdom for daring to think in dating around and for not being a sobbing mess over the break up? And yes, Dave was loved, but only after he was outed as the biggest Sheldon fanboy ever, and after he cheered for his hero to get Amy back, not before, I bet that if he really had been a serious contender for Amy's heart, he wouldn't had had that much of an approval. Now, what I don't really understand is why we are talk
  10. From the wording of the plot summary I get that the episode would go similarly to Ramona's first appearence, just like that time the situation looked as if she and Sheldon were in a romantic relationship when in reality there was none and Sheldon was mostly clueless at what the others were seeing, this time the setting would be for the situation to look like as if he was having an affair with other woman while his girlfriend is out of town (hence, the gang being worried about the whole thing) even when that' not what it's really happening and he is again clueless about the implications of, let
  11. Agree, also, from the Prom Equivalency episode: Sheldon: I really did think you looked pretty.Amy: You did?Sheldon: Yes. So much so that I started to panic. Altough it seems the writers are determined to avoid like the plague Sheldon's admissions of his attraction to his girlfriend, the attraction exists, it's canon. Besides, come on!, it's just obvious, it's also canon that he loves her, and when you are in love with someone, you are attracted to his/her features one way or another, doesn't matter if those features conform to a so-called beauty standard or not.
  12. What about the critical comments that are more an attack to the actors' appearance than a comment about the character itself? you know, like "unsightly big ass", "bad boob job", "ridiculous shortness" and so on?
  13. So, Amy is absolutely disposable just because she isn't married to Sheldon/has his child? What about the effort they had put in showing Sheldon's attachtment to her? what about the insistence in telling us how sad and lost he was when they broke up? She has been elevated to the status of the only woman the golden boy of the series had ever loved, they are even living together now! I don't think it would be that easy to get rid of her, I mean, of course they "could", but to have her gone and show Sheldon unnaffected would be quite a stretch. Not to mention that a good portion of
  14. But Amy is a fleshed out character, she has a lot of defining characteristics, she has a full name (something that even Penny was denied before becoming a Hofstadter), a career, a back story, hobbies, interests, a personality, virtues and shortcomings, etc. The problem is not that she isn't developed as a character (she is), the problem is that the writers are ignoring that on purpose to be able to use her (as you said) just as a foil for Sheldon, just as Leonard and Penny are being neglected and seem to be activated only when they are going to interact with the golden boy, despite being
  15. First bolded part: Yet, She and and the other girls had never been interested in comic books either, but the episode when they ended up heatedly discussing about them was fun and refreshing, I know that Amy suddenly excited about going to Comic Con would be OOC, but there could had been an inspired twist in the plot that could had explained her changing her mind, as had been said, CC is a big and varied event, for instance, she could had been excited at the chance of cosplaying, after all it has been established as kinda her thing, isn't it? Second bolded part: Girl, you are preaching to
