Charlie’s new motto should be “Not Winning!” Tonight there’s a great Emmy scoop by my TVLine colleague Michael Ausiello: recently fired Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen was not submitted for an Emmy nomination by the April 29 deadline. It is not clear who exactly dropped the ball (Sheen recently changed PR reps), though one thing is certain: the series’ producing studio Warner Bros TV, which is being sued by the actor, had no intention of submitting him. Ausiello reports that there is an obscure loophole in the TV Academy’s rule book that could still allow Sheen to enter the race despite missing the deadline because other actors on his show were submitted on time. And nothing would make the TV Academy happier than to have the warlock himself at the ceremony as a nominee.
