Julianna Margulies, Jon Cryer, Eric Stonestreet of "Modern Family," "Boardwalk Empire" and "The Walking Dead" were among the key snubs in major Emmy categories. Margulies, who stars in CBS' "The Good Wife," was shut out of the lead actress in a drama category, where she has been nominated three times, winning in 2011. Also left out this time around was Cryer, who won last year for lead actor in a comedy for "Two and a Half Men. " Cryer has been nominated seven times in a row and won supporting actor for the role in 2009.

Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer, stars of the CBS comedy "Two and a Half Men," have been named the highest-paid TV actors of 2013 by Forbes magazine. Despite flagging viewership as of late, the show makes most of its dough in syndication, which keeps its male stars -- old and new -- in the magazine's top 10 . Besides syndication, most of the actors on the list have some meager box-office bucks that helped boost their totals this year. The magazine calculates the earnings by speaking with producers, managers, agents and other individuals in the industry to figure out how much the actors made through their entertainment-related endeavors between June 2012 and June 2013, Forbes said.

OK, where was Charlie Sheen on Sunday? Perhaps pushing a former co-star off his bike? "Two and a Half Men" star Jon Cryer was banged up Sunday when he fell off of his bike while competing in the 26th Annual Nautical Malibu Triathlon. Cryer suffered scrapes and bruises on his right forearm and elbow, and, what's worse, still has a hangnail! He was wearing a helmet, but no elbow pads. How can you let us down like that, Jon? Set an example for the children! Cryer had to drop out of the competition after his accident, but says he will return next year to try again.

This year's Emmy nominees reveal a bittersweet side effect of the onslaught of quality dramas and comedies, particularly in the cable universe. There's too much of a good thing. Key performers and shows that received Emmy recognition in the past were passed over. Julianna Margulies, who stars as beleaguered attorney Alicia Florrick in the critically acclaimed "The Good Wife," was absent from the lead actress in a drama category. Margulies has been nominated three times for the CBS series, and won the award in 2011.

Jon Cryer won his first Emmy as lead actor in a comedy series for his role as uptight chiropractor Alan Harper in "Two and a Half Men. " In 2009 Cryer won an Emmy for the role in the supporting actor category. Cryer, 47, had said earlier this year he wanted to make a bid for a lead actor nomination for the series this season because so much of the plot hinged on his character, who is reworking his life after the death of his brother Charlie (the role played by Charlie Sheen, who was fired last year)

When "Two and a Half Men"star and awards-season perennial Jon Cryer was filling out his Emmy application this year, he decided to make a change - he would make a bid for lead actor. "It just seemed silly to be in the supporting category when they were hanging so much on the Alan character this season," he said. On Thursday morning that instinct paid off, as Cryer was nominated for lead actor for the first time in his career, landing the spot for his long-running role as uptight chiropractor Alan Harper.

Jon Cryer may have taken home an Emmy for lead actor in a comedy Sunday night, but talking to reporters backstage, he wanted to offer his thoughts on a very different topic: Miley Cyrus' new haircut. He brought it up on his own. “I love it. I think it's fantastic,” he said, when weighing in on the Disney's alum's upcoming guest spot on “Two and a Half Men.” Cryer said he was more confident in putting himself in the running for a lead actor with the departure of cast mate Charlie Sheen.
