Jay Leno: "Dave and I will be watching the Emmys at Oprah's house"

David Letterman is on vacation this week, but Jay Leno wasted no time in poking fun at his own lack of Emmy nominations. Both he and his competitor were snubbed, while Conan O'Brien scored a nod for his final show as "Tonight" host.

"The good news - 'Tonight Show' got 4 nominations. The bad news - I didn’t get one of them," Leno said, according to New York magazine's web site. "And David Letterman didn’t get nominated either. Oh man. I guess Dave and I will be watching the Emmy's at Oprah’s house this year." (A reference to their famous Super Bowl ad.)

    To Leno: FUcccccck youuuuuu........
    Letterman threw a cookie at u and u came all the way from California. Even Oprah must be feeling bad for u--you got no friend in the industry.
    Sorry people--I am really pissed at the Emmy nominations this year. They gave nomination to coco for basically 1 week of watchable show (by the way i personally love coco on his late night show- but the tonight show was horrible until the last week)
    But the biggest disappointment was Craigy getting no nominations--are you Fucking serious.???? This guy has basically nothing- no budget, not a good set, no band or a sidekick etc etc...But despite all that he makes this LLS the funniest show on late night tv with second class guests. He deserves the nominations man...
    As much i am disappointed that Letterman didnot get the nominations--i could deal with that for 1 yr ..but year after year they rip off craigy......why why why????
    Fuccccccccccccccck you emmy people.

    So, all four of the nominations that went to The Tonight Show were for Conan's version?

    CBS has been running promos calling The Late Show Emmy-nominated — ???

    "Late Show" received Emmy nominations in Outstanding Directing For A Variety, Music Or Comedy Series (Jerry Foley); and Outstanding Technical Direction, Camerawork, Video Control For A Series. Plus, David Letterman was nominated in the Outstanding Children's Nonfiction Program category for exec-producing "When Families Grieve." Sesame Street produced the special in association with Worldwide Pants. There are only 2 nominees in the category (the other one is a Linda Ellerbee special), so Dave has a good chance of taking home a trophy.
