Congrats are in order for talented actress and vegan Mayim Bialik, who has just received an Emmy nomination for Supporting Actress in a Comedy for her role as Amy Farrah Fowler on “The Big Bang Theory.”

Bialik celebrated with her family and expressed her excitement to Entertainment Weekly, “We’re taking our boys to Legoland here in Atlanta and my best friend said she would buy me two vegan cupcakes today!”

Sounds like a fun and delicious way to celebrate! Ever since she was 19, Bialik has been an avid vegetarian, then once she became pregnant with her first child in 2005 and after reading “Eating Animals” by Jonathan Safran Foer she turned vegan.

Her cruelty-free lifestyle has been quite the topic of discussion for media members, fans and followers. Some may be against her choices, but it sure hasn’t held her back.

The actress is up against quite an array of actresses including Julie Bowen, Sofia Vergara, Merritt Wever, Kathryn Joosten and Kristen Wiig, who also follows a veg diet.

Bialik’s co-star, Jim Parsons, was also nominated for Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. The two play love interests for one another on the CBS hit.

“I’m thrilled for our show. It’s such an extra, ridiculous insane piece of information that I got nominated,” the 36-year-old actress said.

The 64th Primetime Emmy’s will air on September 23 on ABC. Be sure to tune in and see if Bialik scores a win.
