How the Stars of The Big Bang Theory Forged Incredible Friendships

They're on the biggest show on TV, but the stars of The Big Bang Theory say neither fame nor their new, http://www.people.com/article/big-bang-theory-salary-negotiation-kaley-cuoco have changed them.

"Everybody's got their feet on the ground, so it doesn't feel that much different than day one," star Simon Helberg, 33, tells PEOPLE in its new issue, on newsstands Friday.

What began as a series about four lovable brainiacs and the women who love them has blown up into the most popular sitcom on television today, but the show's stars, along with Helberg – Johnny Galecki, 39; Jim Parsons, 41; Kaley Cuoco, 28; Kunal Nayyar, 33; Mayim Bialik, 38; and Melissa Rauch, 34 – say they aim to stay as normal as possible.

Thankfully, though, we had the acceptance speeches to inject a hint of surprise into the proceedings.

Why The Big Bang Theory Should Win an Emmy

Originally posted 08/24/2014 05:50PM

With apologies to Modern Family, it's time for the Pritchett-Dunphy clan to step aside.

There's a reason why The Big Bang Theory – which is nominated for outstanding comedy series – is the most-watched comedy for four years running: the stars are revered, the jokes are ample, and Sheldon's wardrobe of superhero T-shirts make us wish we could all do our clothes shopping at San Diego Comic-Con.

But enough with limiting the accolades to Jim Parsons, Emmy voters; though we can't deny his comedic chops, his irresistibly fussy Sheldon isn't the only reason for the show's overwhelming success.

The Normal Heart Review: An All-Star Cast in a Powerful Drama About AIDS

The Normal Heart Review: An All-Star Cast in a Powerful Drama About AIDS

The Normal Heart, Larry Kramer's angry, urgent, hectoring play – first staged in 1985 and only now arriving as a film in an excellent production directed by Glee creator Ryan Murphy – has the strength of undiluted acid: It breaks down and eats away the insulation, built up over time, that allows us to place the onset of the AIDS crisis in history.

Even though it's now nearly 30 years old, The Normal Heart (premiering on HBO Sunday at 9 p.m. ET/PT) is not a period piece or a cautionary tale. You are not meant to watch it and think, "Well, this will be useful for the next time." It's a bulletin from the front lines, an in-the-moment, heart-stopping report about the terrifying progress of HIV/AIDS as it sweeps through and decimates Manhattan's gay population.

"Crisis," in retrospect, was an oddly restrained word for this plague. It suggests policy and control – precisely the things that were absent, according to Kramer, as the political, medical and even gay establishments failed to act with the necessary hard-headed urgency.
