Jon Cryer Still Shocked About 2012 Emmy Win For 'Two And A Half Men' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Five months later and Jon Cryer still can't believe that he won the Best Actor in a Comedy Series award for his role on "Two and a Half Men" at the Emmys last September.

During a visit to "LIVE with Kelly and Michael," Cryer told the duo that due to painkillers from a bike accident (and a little liquid courage) he was more relaxed at the Emmys than he'd ever been, "because I knew I wasn't going to win."

Cryer went on to say "it's almost your worst nightmare when they say your name," because he was convinced that the announcer had made a mistake -- especially when he saw other stars in the audience looking as shocked as he was.

The humble star admitted that he was expecting "The Big Bang Theory's" Jim Parsons to take home the gong, but clearly, the winning the accolade hasn't inflated his ego at all.

"Two and a Half Men" airs Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. EST on CBS.
