Leno on Conan’s Emmy Nominations: ‘There’s No ‘Me’ in Emmy’

Considering he has resorted to the catty in the past, it seemed possible Jay Leno would get nasty Thursday night in discussing this morning’s Emmy nominations (Conan received four for his Tonight Show, while Leno was completely snubbed). But Leno steered clear of anything controversial (or funny ... but that basically goes without saying) in addressing the Conan love, though he did take Letterman down with him.

"The good news — Tonight Show got four nominations. The bad news — I didn’t get one of them," Leno said, "And David Letterman didn’t get nominated, either. Oh man. I guess Dave and I will be watching the Emmys at Oprah’s house this year.”
