Charlie Sheen presents Emmy, addresses 'Men' team


Charlie Sheen took the Emmy stage Sunday night and presented the award for outstanding lead actor in a comedy series. The actor called the award “my old category” and then declared:

“I want to take a moment to get something off my chest and say a few words to everybody at Two and a Half Men.” Sheen paused dramatically, then said: “From the bottom of my heart, 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.” Fox and producers were reportedly pressured by Men showrunner Chuck Lorre to drop the actor from the telecast. But see, that wasn’t so bad, right?

Jim Parsons — whose show, The Big Bang Theory, is also produced by Lorre — won the category. After Sheen handed him the award, Parsons said, “This is so odd for so many reasons.”

Back stage, Parsons said he had no idea before the show that Sheen was going to present his category.

“My first glimpse of Charlie was when they showed him getting his makeup in the clips,” Parsons said. “Then two and two came together in my head. And the rest just happened.”

Later, when Men duo Jon Cryer and Ashton Kutcher presented outstanding drama writing, Kutcher said, “I want to tell you something: I do not think you are a troll,” referencing Sheen’s odd put down of Cryer a few months back.

    It was awkward, and I think Charlie was expecting more applause. Sorry Charlie.

  • alec

    Well done, Charlie!

    • SamyIM1982

      Absolutely took alot of guts to be there tonight !

      • Acaseofgeo

        It WAS well done and he acted very humble. I kept expecting a zinger but there wasn’t one. I know this whole controversy has created scads of publicity for an aging show, but I really wish him well and that all the controversy never happened.

      • AB

        you don’t think his publicist and his agent didn’t make him do and say what he did? He’s just realizing he needs to act humble if he ever wants to work again. And he IS an actor, he knows how to appear sincere.

      • Sami

        Yes, he “acted” humble because he had to. He knows that if he wants a paycheck he needs to do a lot of grovelling and back-pedaling. Screw him and his insincerity borne of desperation.

  • amy

    Must have nerves of teflon. Good job, Charlie.

  • Roto4

    So proud of Charlie he is getting back to where he should be. Everyone goes thru things it’s sad that if your an actor everyone has to see your low times I’m so glad he is getting back up he’s a true survivor wishing him only the best always!

    • Ap

      You’re kidding right?

      You do know that this is not Charlie’s first time that he’s “gone thru things” right?

      • aaron

        Shut the hell up dumb ass.

  • sud370

    Winning!! Charlie is the new Chuck Norris.

    • Javadude54

      Except Chuck Norris doesn’t go around beating up and threatening women.

      • SamyIM1982

        Yea but, nobody knows the circumstances only the people there do.
        He’s getting his life back in order so happy for him.

      • sam

        don’t judge it is above all allegations, one of his so called ‘victim’ Brooke Mueller want to come back with him but he doesn’t…So we don’t know what really happen in the lives of these celeb, press can report and twist fact all they want..More dirt, more headline, more money.
        Well-done Charlie

  • Cheryl

    I think Charlie Sheen did a great job tonight and I wish him nothing but the best.

  • PJ

    Too bad it was clear he didn’t mean a word of it.

    • April

      I totally agree. BEGGING

      • penny

        i totally disagree, he is just smart, he has moved on but he just shows to networks, cable that they can buy his new show..that is all, Sheen is SMART really smart.

      • Tim

        He is not smart or he would not be in he position that he put himself in. What he is is desperate.

      • Tim


      • olivia

        HE is smart You are desperate Tim.
        He also told some really true things that were not deseperate at all.

  • Hugh

    Good to see that Charlie is back on his medication!

  • jillian

    I missed it! I was putting my son to bed. I thought he’d be on towards the end to get people to watch longer. Oh well I’m sure it’ll be on the news in the morning and now I can go to bed early.

  • RobbyFL

    Couldn’t have been easy for Charlie, but he manned up and on some level I’m sure his peers appreciated it. Loved Jim Parsons’ comment about the oddness.

    • Greg

      Manning it up might mean an actual apology.

      • Alex

        He doesn’t have to for pete’s sake, they are not better than him ! He took responsability and that is more than enough.

  • PeopleWhoNeedPeople

    Crackheads are so crazzzaay!

  • chris

    He looked psychotic.

  • Matt

    His “kudos” to 2.5 Men sounded awkward. Since all of the comedy presenters were in it for laughs, I kept waiting for the punchline.

  • Kathy Robinson

    What a classy short speech. Hopefully he is getting it together.
