Charlie Sheen of 'Two and a Half Men'
Charlie Sheen, "Two and a Half Men"
Nomination Status: There are four locks in this category -- Baldwin, Carell, Shalhoub and Sheen. Everything else is guesswork.
Bottom Line: Sheen has been nominated each of the past three seasons for "Two and a Half Men." Given that "Men" remains TV's most watched comedy and that Sheen hasn't exactly done anything to start becoming *worse* over the seasons, there's little chance that the Emmy voters will forget about him. He's decidedly an afterthought nominee compared to the first three and a win seems unlikely, but the nomination is inevitable.
