The 2012 Emmy Awards are just a few days away, and while the stars of the small screen are likely excited and super anxious about Sunday night... life must go on as usual until the big day!

So -- how did some of the noms spend their week before the Emmys?! Business as usual, for some, but don't worry, some of the stars did manage to find some time for fun.

The lady is newly single -- so of course she spent one of her free nights this week at a bar with a mystery man! Amy (nominated for Comedy Actress) was hard at work, too, though. She filmed scnenes for Parks and Recreation and also made an appearance on Letterman.

Jon Cryer

Jon (nominated for Comedy Actor) also had a pretty busy week! He competed in the Nautica Malibu Triathlon, then headed to New York for several appearances, including Sirius XM Radio and Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.

Melissa McCarthy

It was all about the Emmy's this week for Melissa (nominated for Comedy Actress)! She hit up the Primetime Creative Emmy Awards last Sunday, and then went to an Emmy Kick-Off Party (attended by fellow nominees like Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen) later in the week.
