Of 39 past Emmy nominations, "Two and a Half Men" has won five times: one for Jon Cryer as best supporting actor and four tech prizes. Charlie Sheen has lost four times as best comedy actor (2006-09) and the show itself lost three times as best comedy series (2006-08).
Now if the show continues without its superstar on board, will the CBS laffer be forever doomed at the Emmys?
Or maybe "Two and a Half Men" will have much better luck without Sheen? A few days ago, when he was still employed by the TV series, we ran a poll asking if the rascal would be nominated for lead actor again. About 64% of our readers said no. Only 12% said they believed Sheen would be nominated this year and win.
