Given the circumstances surrounding Charlie Sheen after his firing from the sitcom, Warner Bros. Television decides to pass on the chance to compete for Outstanding Comedy Series.
Warner Bros. Television decides not to submit "Two and a Half Men", which will be revamped with Ashton Kutcher on the lead, for Best Comedy Series nomination at upcoming Primetime Emmy Awards. The decision was made due to Charlie Sheen's firing from the show and controversies that followed, Deadline reported.
While refusing to enter competition for the Best Comedy Series accolade due to the Charlie Sheen fiasco, bosses behind the show are fully supportive toward his former co-stars Jon Cryer, Holland Taylor, Angus T. Jones and Conchata Ferrell. The studio reportedly will go full throttle in campaigning for their win at the awards show.
"Two and a Half Men" has been nominated for Emmy Outstanding Comedy Series for three times with the most recent one in 2008. Despite winning for its Sound Mixing, Picture Editing and Cinematography works and successfully leading Cryer to win Outstanding Supporting Actor in 2009, the show failed to take home the outstanding series trophy.
