    WTF?! Will that show never go off the air? How can Barney not win? He is AWESOME!

  • Katrina

    I was shocked and shouted at my tv. my roommates must have thought I was crazy.

  • Calila

    my reaction was “wha…..???”. the emmys broke my brain for a little while

  • CC

    Obviously they don’t have taste ;p

  • Bloo

    Seriously? I just sat there in shock. Stared at my TV screen and tried not to scream. I would have lived if the Emmy had gone to someone else, but John Cryer? Of Two and a Half men?! Of all the comedy shows on television, the Academy had to pick the one I hated most. It made the whole thing just that much more unbearable. But at least we got the NPH losing jokes, those were funny. And yeah, that’s the only good side.

  • Susan Somers

    NPH was robbed – most definitely.

  • Heather

    Upset me, but didn’t surprise me. It always seems like those who actually have breakout performance in their genre are not recognized very frequently. Lauren Graham anyone? Oh well, we all know who is LEGEN…wait for it…DARY!

  • Linda B.

    I’m in the minority here because I’ve yet to see HIMYM, so I haven’t seen NPH in the role. Jon Cryer seems like a nice enough guy and I loved Duckie Dale in the day, so congrats to him.

    Maybe if I win this DVD, I can start watching the show. ;)

  • Javi

    My reaction?… WHERE IS KANYE WHEN YOU NEED HIM!! I was pissed; I still am. I don’t get it; Jon Cryer’s performance is a joke, just like that show. Now that the kid is all grown up, the fart jokes are NOT funny!!! NPH shoul’ve won!!!!

  • Amy Dunbar

    I was right pissed. I think I may have blacked out for a moment cuz I don’t remember a lot except screaming and coming online to read what others thought. I had my family over to watch the Emmy’s with me and my step-mother was all happy that Jon Cryer won. So at that point I had to have a sit down with her and have a lecture about Neil Patrick Harris’ greatness.

  • Tiffany

    I though Jon Cryer layered really well. I also cringed. At his win, and layering.

  • Kayla

    I literally screamed “NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!” at the TV so loud my friend in the room with me screamed a little bit in fright. It was very bad. I proceeded to have a very passionate discussion with her about how Neil deserved to win over all of them to which she replied, “Nope, Rainn should have won.” Now, I love me some Dwight Schrute, but it made me even more upset. :)

  • Bec

    I threw my scotch at the television and immediately started to write a stern letter addressed to all that voted that began with ‘To dear burglars,’ and was centered around particularly around the phrase ‘what in the hell is wrong with you?!’.

    I then went and watched Doctor Horrible and considered writing a fanfiction about Doc Hob’s interruption ringing true and concluding in NPH’s emmy being placed into the right, though paradoxically impossible, hands. It is currently being typed.

    NPH deserves much more praise than he gets and missing out on winning is a ridiculous loss.

  • Kyle


    I have never seen 2.5 men and don’t know anyone who watches it–why is it “top rated” and how does it win awards?!

  • Sean Storm

    I was reallllly bummed out. Neil winning the award was the only thing I was looking forward to, other than him hosting the gig itself. So when he lost (especially without Piven in the running this year), I felt he was robbed. Still, with dignity and class, Neil continued to host the show, which, by the way, was the ONLY Emmy show I watched from start to finish, solely on the hosting talents of Neil alone. Bravo, NPH!

  • Tim

    NPH is hilarious. I just don’t understand how 2.5 men gets such high ratings. HIMYM makes me laugh so much more.

  • Amber

    Shock and disbelief, pretty much. The fact that NPH was overlooked for that crap show is terrible. As funny as Jon Cryer has the potential to be, he’s not funny on that show. NPH is fantastic on HIMYM.

  • theo

    TO be honest I didn’t watch season 4 of HIMYM, but my jaw still hit the floor is disbelief. Which is why I would love a copy of season 4…

  • Lauren

    I thought about throwing my remote at the TV and then went into my kitchen to eat my feelings.

  • jpm37

    I am glad the CBS comedies get some love but NPH is way deserving of the Emmy

  • becky

    My immediate thought was, “that’s weird john cryer won for best supporting actor in a comedy series, cause two and a half men has never made me laugh.” irony….. Also that NPH is the funniest on TV right now and should have won, hands down.

  • MD

    NO WAY!!!

  • Kathleen

    I was so super bummed! NPH is the bestest!!!

  • Brooke

    Swarley, Barnacle, Barney anything you want to call him He so should have won!

  • Geraldine

    My reaction was something along the line of “…what? how? why? really? JON CRYER?!” NPH’s little bit with the cards after was funnier than anything that’s ever been on 2.5 Men, not to mention everything he’s done with the character of Barney.

  • Robyn Pennington

    NPH can deliver lines. Jon Cryer is just the punch line but he can’t deliver. NPH is legen – wait for it…. DARY! and so is his performance! I was heartbroken when Jon Cryer won… Ugh…

  • Smith

    I cannot believe this.
    Neil Patrick Harris lost to someone from two and a half men?

    I love HIMYM.
    NPH is definitely the funniest actor on television.

  • funkyduck

    sooo super sad :( not even funny !!!
