"It's the thought that counts." That's what Jim Parsons is telling himself, at least. 'The Big Bang Theory's' funniest (and nerdiest) star recently took home the Emmy award for best actor in a comedy series. On 'Late Show' (11:35PM ET on CBS), Parsons talked with David Letterman about the highs and lows of winning such a major prize. On the plus side, Jim's mom was there to witness the event, which is nice. But on the minus side, his mother felt like she was going to "vomit" after the ceremony. ... That's less fun. Also in the "less good" category was this -- Jim received an angry message from Alec Baldwin. In winning his Emmy, Parson beat a number of better-known stars, including Steve Carell, Larry David and ... Alec Baldwin. But Baldwin was nice enough to send him a congratulatory gift. Jim was impressed by the politeness. "How classy," he said. But there was a dark side to Mr. Baldwin's present. Alec sent Jim a "wine and cheese basket." However, the tasteful gift was accompanied by a note where Alec called Jim ... "a bastard." We're sure that Mr. Baldwin was just kidding about the "bastard" thing ... probably. Although this was the second time that Parsons has defeated the '30 Rock' star. Previously, Jim beat Alec for another best acting in comedy award. So it's possible that Baldwin's pent-up annoyance spilled over into his message. Well, at least Jim got some free wine and cheese out of the deal. And, as he said, it's the thought that counts. Just not the particular "thought" where Alec called Jim a bad name, hopefully.
