If you were among the Emmy viewers on Sundays who were miffed Best Lead Actor in a Comedy Series winner Jim Parsons didn’t give much of a shoutout to boyfriend/fiance Todd Spiewak in his acceptance speech, you can blame Charlie Sheen.
Parsons was on Conan last night and explained what happened:
“I winged it. The only time it worried me was right before the category. And then lo and behold Charlie Sheen walked out. That was so confusing to me [that] it kind of took all the pressure away. I forgot we were gonna do the category, I forgot what I was gonna say if I did have to go up there…I didn’t thank one single person and nobody noticed because Charlie was behind me.”
You hear that Charlie? You might have a career as a professional distraction.
Matt Bomer is on line one.
