    This decision actually makes a lot of sense the more I think about it. With Sheen out, his character is certainly the center of the show now. And the voters would probably nominate him for a toothpaste commercial at this point. Plus, that category really isn’t that competitive – Carell’s out, Baldwin’s almost gone, Parsons and Galecki… yeah, everything else is free reign. I still think Louis C.K. will win this year, but good move by Cryer.

    Well, I guess that does makes sense, with less competition and a recent SAG nom. It’ll be interesting to see which 2 actors not from Modern Family fill up the supporting actor category.

    Paul Han is probably crying, Don Cheadle just lost his spot.

    Actually, the way that I see it, this is the most likely line-up right now.

    Alec Baldwin, 30 Rock
    Don Cheadle, House of Lies
    Jon Cryer, Two and a Half Men
    Johnny Galecki, Big Bang Theory
    Jim Parsons, Big Bang Theory
    Louis C.K., Louie

    Unless I’m missing someone really big, I don’t think that a nod for Cryer is a snub for Cheadle.

    You’re missing Larry David.

    There it is! I knew I was missing something. Thank you.

    I still don’t think it’s Cheadle or Cryer.

    um…good?

    Hopefully this means Nick Offerman will finally get the nomination he should have gotten the last 2 years.

    There’s also Matt LeBlanc for Episodes. Depending on when it airs, we’re getting close to the cutoff date and still no news. Or did I miss something?

    And maybe William H Macy, where did Shameless submit last year?

    I think that Baldwin, David, Parsons, C.K and Galecki are safe bets at this point. I believe LeBlanc and Cryer will then fight for that final spot, but I also agree that Cryer has a good shot at being nominated wherever he submits.

    The good news is in supporting where he very much stole a spot from a bunch of actors last year. I guess it means that Colfer might be a nominee again, I was kind of thinking last year was it for him.

    Nope; Cheadle is in already.  He’s got at least 2 tapes so far with 4 episodes left in House of Lies’ season.

    Episodes isn’t airing until the summer so LeBlanc is out. And William H Macy submitted to drama last year so he’s not a contender for comedy.

    I was just thinking the same thing, that Cryer’s move is impactful not because of whose spot he will be taking in Lead, but because of his open slot in Supporting will give someone like Offerman a chance to finally break in. Heck, if Offerman does get in because of this, he might just win the thing.

    I think everybody saw this coming. It is a very smart move on Cryer`s part, and I do believe he will end up being nominated. 

    Lead Actor, Comedy

    Parsons
    Baldwin
    C.K.
    David
    Galecki
    Cryer

    I don`t think Cheadle will be nominated.

    I do believe Offerman will be nominated. Sometimes it just takes time for a person to break through, and I say it happens for him this year.

    Supporting Actor, Comedy

    Burrell
    Stonestreet
    O` Neill
    Colfer
    Ferguson
    Offerman

    I feel that Burrell is the only one from MF that deserves to be nominated in the SA category this year, but I think all four will end up making it back in. Right now, Colfer is the only major nomination I have predicted for Glee. I just have a feeling he gets another nomination.

    Smart move, but pointless.  Parsons has this all locked up.

    PS:  TV LINE has already given credit to Goldderby on scooping  this news first:    http://www.tvline.com/2012/03/emmys-jon-cryer-moves-lead-actor-category/ so way to go Goldderby!

    Finally he’ll disappear from the supporting actor category. There’s no way Colfer will make it in again so this makes two open slots and one might actually go to Nick Offerman. Cool.
    Sadly LeBlanc and Carell open two slots in lead as well, so Cryer will most likely get a 7th nod
