Life imitated art Tuesday when "The Big Bang Theory" — the American TV sitcom, not the scientific explanation for how the universe began — entered the annals of Nobel Prize history.

The announcement of the winners of this year's Nobel in physics began with a nod to an unlikely cultural reference: the opening lyrics to the show's theme song. "The Big Bang Theory" had its finale in May. In the episode, two of the main characters, Sheldon and Amy, win the physics prize.

The announcement that a trio of scientists had won the physics Nobel started off with an unlikely reference: the opening lines of the show that ended its run earlier this year with a story line in which two main "The Big Bang Theory " debuted in 2007 and overcame early doubts to become a cult classic.

"Our whole universe was in a hot, dense state, then nearly 14 billion years ago expansion started," academy member Ulf Danielsson said, quoting "The Big Bang" theme at the presentation in Stockholm.

Goran Hansson, secretary general of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, said the TV show was a "fantastic achievement" that brought the "world of science to laptops and living rooms around the world." Referencing its theme song therefore seemed fitting, he said.

"The Big Bang Theory" debuted in 2007 and overcame early doubts to become a cult classic. The show featured a crew of nerdy misfits, all scientists on the West coast of the United States.

The couple waits anxiously by the phone getting prank calls from their friends before receiving the actual decision.

Hansson said he hoped fans of the show liked how this year's Nobel Prizes are handled.

"I hope that Sheldon and Amy are not too disappointed today," he said.
