Exclusive: Charlie Sheen KO'd From Emmys?

Here’s one thing Charlie Sheen may not be winning: a primetime Emmy award.

In fact, there’s a chance he won’t even be scoring a nomination.

Sources confirm that the embattled actor — who earned four consecutive Outstanding Actor in a Comedy Series nods for Two and Half Men from 2006-09 — did not submit his name by the April 29 deadline. Whether Sheen elected to take himself out of the race or — amidst the drama of the past few months, during which he changed personal representation — it merely slipped his mind remains unclear.

It sounds like it could be the latter. An Academy of Television Arts and Sciences insider confirms that Sheen’s camp — just hours after TVLine checked in with them about Sheen’s submission status — contacted Emmy brass on Tuesday to inquire about the missed deadline. And it’s a good thing they did, as Sheen’s reps were made aware of a potential and little-known loophole that would give the actor a second shot at entering the race, beginning May 18.

“The rule book states that ‘It is the responsibility of the person making the entry to list all eligible entrants,’ notes the Academy source. “TV production companies or studios or networks generally have an awards coordinator who handles most or all of the entries for a show, but with Two and a Half Men, there was no central coordinator making manifold entries. At the entry deadline of April 29, we had a number of entries for show personnel — including the principal performers — but none for Charlie Sheen.  When his representative came forward [on May 3] to ask if he could be included in the cluster of performers who were already entered, we considered the above inclusionary rule applicable, because a loose confederacy of other performer reps had already submitted a partial but incomplete team of principle performers, and with Charlie we would have accomplished the rule’s letter and spirit intent of having ‘all eligible entrants’ in the fold.”

It remains unclear whether Sheen will take advantage of this second chance. Of course, let’s remember that this is the person who  — in one of his many famous attacks against the CBS hitcom’s creator, Chuck Lorre — took credit for the show’s success, saying he took his boss’ “tin cans and turned them into pure gold.” So, modest he is not.

Sheen’s rep had no comment on the entire matter. A Warner Bros. insider, meanwhile, told TVLine that the studio is not responsible for submitting individual actors.

    they should invent a new category. “Best Celebrity Breakdown”

    That way he can say “Winning!” one more time.

  3. Dirk says:

    You’re so smart.

  4. Shy says:

    He probably didn’t even thought about it. Since all his advisers probably quit him and there was no one to tell him that. Who knows maybe before there were people at the show who submitted all those entries for all actors and then send them from the name of the actors.

    But since Sheen was fired then it was no one to send it for him. That’s proves once again that he is stupid actor who doesn’t know how system or layers work and thinks that since he has money he can win everything. But those people at the studio have even more power, money and layers.

  5. Buffy Freak says:

    He didn’t even deserve those previous nominations.

  6. Justine says:

    Didn’t he just say in an interview that Two and a Half Men was based on him and his life? If that’s really the case, he shouldn’t even be up for an Emmy. It doesn’t take that much talent to play yourself.

  7. Bob says:

    So let me get this right: If Sheen somehow gets on the nomination list AND gets nominated AND by miracle of miracles actually wins, we have YOU to thank, Michael? You couldn’t let sleeping dogs lie? Expect a LOT of hate mail if all those planets align.

  8. Sam says:

    Isn’t the fact that he ever got nominated the REAL crime here?

  9. Pam says:

    Please do not give this nut job another platform.

  10. John Grey says:

    Sheeny is a perfect sh*t, who cost other people their jobs! This occurred from a man who was being paid nearly $2million an episode!
    I will NEVER have any compassion for sheeny as a public persona’.
    His attempt to make believe that somehow this issue is the responsibility of the program’s business types demand that one believe he went into the agreement with his eyes wide shut!
    Charlie Sheen is a low & ugly souled narcissist who hurts those around him through his hedonism.

  11. Kira J says:

    Crazy druggie behavior aside, I don’t think that he ever should have been nominated. I’ve seen as much of the show as I can stomach, and he’s playing himself and not very well.

  12. Laurel says:

    Quite frankly I never understood why it was OK to applaud the “charater” on the show.
    A boozing HO monger who had the morals of an alley cat.
    Which was CHUCK LORRE’S creation.
    So he has been getting rich off of GLORIFICATION this behavior which he is now so offended by in real life.
    It ALL sounds so hypocritical to me.

    Charlie Sheen getting an Emmy this year WILL NEVER HAPPEN.
    Too many toes would be stepped on…

      But sometimes the Hollywood types who vote in this category like to “stick it” to their corporate masters by voting for the outcast.

    Charlie Sheen Rocks!

    Not big deal if Charlie Sheen doesn’t get a nom this year. Anyway with the industry and the medias trying to vilify him it is pretty clear he doesn’t have a freaking chance.
    I just hope to see him in another tv show (and movies) next year as a lead where he can win some awards, if Hollywood is not dumb enough to prevent him from working (and if it is the case i will be glad to watch him in independent movie directors projects).
