It was recently announced that Conan was nominated for an Emmy. Conan will be going up against “The Colbert Report,” “The Daily Show,” “Real Time With Bill Maher” and “Saturday Night Live” in the Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series category. Jay Leno was not nominated.
Interestingly, Conan’s own people submitted the work for nomination, while NBC submitted Jay for nomination, reports PopEater.
Conan’s new Late Night show starts on TBS in November. TBS has launched a campaign to nominate Conan for an Emmy. If he wins, undoubtedly he is going to make his new bosses at TBS very happy!
