Jon Cryer Weighs in on his Emmy Odds
September 21, 2012
Will 2012 bring Emmy gold for Jon Cryer?
The Two and a Half Men star has enjoyed an Emmy nomination for his role as Alan Harper every year since 2006, with one win in 2009, but the sitcom star admits to ET that he's not even thinking about his chances of winning this time around.
"It's an amazing feeling. You never get used to it," said Cryer. "I love just being a member of the Television Academy. I grew up on television and always loved it. I can't believe that I'll go there...To be honored by this group with a nomination is amazing."
Come Sunday, the funnyman will go up against Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory), Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Don Cheadle (House of Lies), Louis C.K. (Louie) and Alec Baldwin (30 Rock) for the coveted statuette for Outstanding Lead Actor, but if he doesn't win, it's no skin off his back.
"I already have one anyway," jokes Cryer.
Navigating this year's ceremony might present a few struggles as the star was injured last Sunday during the Nautica Malibu Triathlon. Despite participating in the event on numerous occasions, the star took a nasty tumble on the bike course and had to withdraw the race to tend to his injuries.
Two and a Half Men returns to CBS for season 10 at a new day and time, Thursday September 27 at 8:30/ 7:30 c.
