The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences let it be known they were on Team Coco today after the 2010 Emmy Awards nominations were announced.
Blatantly giving the finger to the Jay Leno Show that aired in prime time, The Tonight Show With Conan O'Brien was nominated as best variety, music, or comedy series. Conan's tweet says it all, doesn't it?
The team was also nominated for best directing, outstanding art direction, and outstanding writing in a variety, music, or comedy series.
In another Switzerland-esque move, the 2010 Emmy Awards will be hosted by Jimmy Fallon, who, incidentally, was not nominated either.
I can't wait to see how far this goes and if Conan and his team will go home with the swooping statue on July 31. The Tonight Show is competing against The Colbert Report, The Daily Show With Jon Stewart, Real Time With Bill Maher, and Saturday Night Live.
Are you rooting for Conan?
