Conan O'Brien 'Tonight Show' gets Emmy nod; Jay Leno doesn't

"The Tonight Show" with host Conan O'Brien -- not Jay Leno -- received four Emmy nominations Thursday morning (July 8), a bittersweet recognition after such ugly controversy.

After NBC gave him the boot, the network could be in the position to air his Emmy acceptance speech during the live telecast on Sunday, Aug. 29.

Coco's "The Tonight Show" was nominated for outstanding variety, music or comedy series, its directing, writing and art direction. O'Brien's "Tonight Show" is up against "The Colbert Report," "The Daily Show," "Real Time With Bill Maher" and "Saturday Night Live."

Late night nemesis Leno was nowhere to be found among the nominees -- neither for "The Jay Leno Show" nor his version of "The Tonight Show." Ouch.
