Even though he had a loophole and more than enough time to submit himself for Emmy consideration, Charlie Sheen will not be in the lead comedy actor race for his performance on last season's Two and a Half Men.
The question is this: Did he purposely decide to not to submit himself, or did he just pull a Sheen and completely forget about what was happening outside his crazy bubble? Plus, we've got news on a Glee star going solo, TV pregnancy dish and a Housewives franchise getting another season in today's TV Update...
The official Emmys ballot was released by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Monday night, and Sheen's name was not listed. A source tells THR that he was aware of all the deadlines, and blew each and every one. So, either Charlie finally took the high road and decided not to run after the year o' scandal, or he simply didn't get his act together in time. (Which reason sounds more plausible to you?)
In addition, CBS opted not to include Two and a Half Men in their Best Comedy Series race after the Sheen debacle, but Jon Cryer, who won for his supporting role in 2009, Angus T. Jones, Holland Taylor, Conchata Ferrell and guest star Jane Lynch (this year's host) have all submitted themselves for an Emmy. Nominations will be announced Thursday, July 14.
