‘Two and a Half Men’ actor Jon Cryer beat out an impressive field of nominees to win an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series.

Cryer, 47, wasted no time in elevating his star power after Charlie Sheen exited the popular sitcom. Ashton Kutcher was cast as the new star of ‘Men’ but it was the uptight chiropractor Alan Harper who quickly morphed from a supporting role to carrying the show.

The actor seemed genuinely shocked when he hit the stage. He stammered, “Ok, Ok, don’t panic people. Something has clearly gone terribly wrong. I’m, I’m stunned.”

Jon has previously been nominated six times in the category of Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, picking up an Emmy in 2009.

Sheen’s arch nemesis Chuck Lorre was in the audience and appeared decidedly pleased with this interesting turn of events.

Neither Charlie or Ashton have yet weighed in on Twitter. Their silence is deafening.
