Guest I'm not dead Cheryl Posted March 30, 2012 Posted March 30, 2012 Funnier than > insert character is actually a matter of opinion and subjective perception not a fact. For me, even though I love Penny with all my heart, she is certainly the least funny of all the characters on the show. That doesn't make her a worst character or means that I hate her or anything like that. Amy is to me the funniest character on the show, even funnier than Sheldon maybe because she has that absolute awkwardness and social unawareness that Sheldon has coupled with the fact that she is a girl and tries to act girly and cool but failing miserably. That is very funny and endearing to me. But then again, it is MY OPINION. And Mayim's performance on this role made me love this character as I do. I couldn't possible love Amy as much as I do if she was played by another actress (the same way I feel about Jim/Sheldon). Mayim has been acting since she was a little kid and has filmed next to people like Woody Allen, Michael J Fox, Bette Middler, Jennifer Aniston, and so on. I don't think anyone can say she is a bad actress (not objectively at least), and I do see as plausible for her to get an Emmy nomination, specially after reading SO many critics acclaiming her performance. She was even Variety's ONLY female actress on their Emmy hopeful's list this year. I just don't understand why saying this causes the rant over Penny/Kaley. No one is attacking her or hating her or anything. I would be thrilled if Kaley was nominated for a major award. BUT I still think Mayim's work is excellent and honestly, deserving of at least an Emmy nomination. SPECIALLY since she is a supporting character. And yes, she only had TWO storylines this year that focused on her. The rest were Sheldon storylines where she was only there as his foil. She missed some episodes and in some of them, she barely had a line or two. And yet still, she totally owned the episodes where she was featured, and stole the show too (specially Shiny Trinket.. she only had two scenes and yet one of them is the one EVERYBODY remembers of that episode). And again, it is MY opinion. And some people might think differently but it's OK, because it is an OPINION Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
