According to Deadline.com, Warner Bros. TV confirmed that the show had not been submitted despite having produced and aired enough episodes in its eighth season to be eligible. Sources close to the show said producers decided the show should not be submitted due to the controversies surrounding former star Charlie Sheen.
Production on the series had to be suspended in January when Sheen was hospitalized after an allegedly drug-fuelled bender. Then, following Sheen's series of bizarre public rants, in which he relentlessly attacked 'Two and Half Men' co-creator Chuck Lorre, Warner Bros. and CBS, production on the show was halted for the season.
Sheen was subsequently fired, and Ashton Kutcher was hired as his replacement.
Here come two more lists of the ten actors and actresses that are finalists for Emmy nominations in the supporting comedy categories. As with the other awards, there are some surprises on the list, and some notable omissions. For the ladies, the headline is that last year's winner, Jaime Pressly (My Name Is Earl), didn't make the cut. Surprise finalists include Conchata Ferrell (Two And A Half Men) and Amy Poehler (Saturday Night Live). I don't mind seeing Conchata on the list because she is consistently funny on the show, but I don't know that there is enough to her role for her to actually garner a nomination when you consider the competition.
First up was The Closer at Raleigh Studios in Hollywood. Kyra Sedgwick and other cast members of the TNT drama mixed and mingled on the show's squad room set. Most reporters hovered around Sedgwick to inquire about her Emmy nomination for Lead Actress in a Drama Series, the show's new season and husband Kevin Bacon.
