(HawaiiNewsNow) - As if Ashton Kutcher needed another adoring fan. Jon Cryer said on the Emmy's red carpet last night: "I'm already converted to the cult of Ashton. You will be too." Kutcher will make his debut on Two and a Half Men tonight (Monday). As for Sheen's departure, Cryer says, "...I've made my peace with it."
Charlie Sheen couldn't have been more gracious about his old bosses and colleagues at Sunday night's Emmy Awards in Los Angeles. "My old category," an almost sheepish Sheen said as he presented the award for best actor in a comedy to Jim Parsons of CBS' "The Big Bang Theory." Sheen also addressed the cast and crew of the CBS comedy "Two and a Half Men." "From the bottom of my heart," he said, "I wish you nothing but the best for this upcoming season. We spent eight wonderful years together and I know you will continue to make great television." According to published reports, Fox and the Emmy producers were being pressured by Chuck Lorre and Warner Bros. to drop Sheen as a presenter.
Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy saw an Emmy's first. All the nominees, led by Amy Poehler, marched on stage and held hands in what seemed like a spontaneous moment. When the winner was announced, Melissa McCarthy of Mike and Molly, was presented with a diamond tiara and bouquet of roses in what she called her "first and best pageant ever." Turns out it was a stunt cooked up between fellow nominees Amy Poehler and Martha Plimpton.
