Leave it up to Jon Cryer to make a joke out of his Emmy nomination. The Two and a Half Men star quipped about the current state of his sitcom, when thanking the Academy for the nod he received for his role as Alan Harper.
Jon was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in the Comedy Series category and took the time to make a joke about the controversy which plagued the hit CBS comedy — centered around former star, Charlie Sheen.
“In a year when nothing much has happened on our show and you could barely find a word about me or my co-stars on the internet, it is lovely to be recognized by the Academy in this way!” Jon said in a statement, via Radar Online.
Jon is clearly being sarcastic, referring to all the drama that occurred this season which led to the show’s hiatus and firing of Charlie, who is currently entangled in a $100 million legal battle with creator/producer Chuck Lorre and Warner Bros.
The 46-year-old actor will be competing against fellow nominees Chris Colfer from Glee and Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Ed O’Neill, Ty Burrell and Eric Stonestreet — all from Modern Family.
