Jim Parsons, who plays Sheldon Cooper on CBS’ The Big Bang Theory, won his fourth Emmy for the role on Monday night at the Primetime Emmys.

“To say that I watch your work and feel inspired is an understatement,” he said to the other nominees in his category—Louis C.K. of Louie, Don Cheadle of House of Lies, Ricky Gervais of Derek, Matt LeBlanc of Episodes, and William H. Macy of Shameless. ”There’s no accounting for taste, and it’s thanks to a lot of good fortune that I stand up here tonight.”

Parsons also thanked his late father, who encouraged him to be an actor.
