The Emmy Awards could end up featuring more than awards and long acceptance speeches, there could be a few awkward situations with rumors circulating that Charlie Sheen will be in attendance.
According to The Hollywood Reporter Sheen could run into former Two and a Half Men co-star Jon Cryer who is nominated for a Best Supporting Actor trophy and who Sheen called a “troll” after Cryer did not publicly support him during his now infamous meltdown.
Also expected to be in attendance is Ashton Kutcher, the man who took Sheen’s job when Warner Bros. and CBS fired the former star.
There’s a chance the show could go off without a Charlie Sheen meltdown, the actor has recently been making all of the standard rounds to late night talk shows and he appears to be clear headed or in the least well-medicated.
If Sheen doesn’t end up presenting a top prize at the Emmy’s fans of his career can still catch him the following night when the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen airs. Sheen did not submit his name for an award of his own, making him ineligible to be nominated.
While I’m a fan of watching Charlie Sheen completely lose his mind for the camera’s, I for one hope he will tone down his attitude for tonight’s award show and allow the Emmy’s to be the high brow event they aim to be.
The Emmy Awards are set to air live on Fox TV tonight from the NOKIA Theatre in Los Angeles.
