Nerds Rejoice! Big Bang's Bialik Spills on Emmy News

"Big Bang Theory" actress Mayim Bialik penned a column on the Jewish parenting website Kveller to detail how "shocked" she was to learn of her Emmy nomination.

The former child star, 37, said she was awakened by her best friend in Israel at 5:30 a.m. who wanted to find out if she had been nominated. After getting out of bed to scour the Internet, she wrote, she got a phone call from her publicist, who she thought was calling to console her.

When she learned the good news, "I think my eyes welled up but I didn't cry," Bialik said. "I literally could not believe it."

This is her second consecutive nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her turn as Amy Farrah Fowler on the CBS comedy. She lost last year to Julie Bowen of "Modern Family."

Boston Magazine Releases Tsarnaev Capture Photos

New, never-before-seen photos showing the moments before Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's capture were released amid the controversial Rolling Stone cover featuring the 19-year-old that hit newsstands Wednesday.

The photos of Tsarnaev's capture that first appeared on Boston magazine's website showed Tsarnaev covered in what appeared to be blood and a sniper's laser on his head.

The photos were credited to Massachusetts State Police Sgt. Sean Murphy, a tactical photographer who served 25 years with the force and is now the subject of a department investigation. "As a professional law-enforcement officer of 25 years, I believe that the image that was portrayed by Rolling Stone magazine was an insult to any person who has ever worn a uniform of any color or any police organization or military branch, and the family members who have ever lost a loved one serving in the line of duty," he said.

"The truth is that glamorizing the face of terror is not just insulting to the family members of those killed in the line of duty, it also could be an incentive to those who may be unstable to do something to get their face on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine."

The magazine has defended its use of the image, saying the decision to feature Tsarnaev was in line with "Rolling Stone's long-standing commitment to serious and thoughtful coverage of the most important political and cultural issues of our day."
