Kelsey Grammer: I was snubbed for an Emmy because I'm a Republican

Kelsey Grammer won this year’s Golden Globe for Best Actor for his starring role in Boss, the Starz drama about a ruthless Chicago mayor, so you might be wondering why the Emmys failed to even nominate him. Jay Leno wondered, so he asked Grammer what he thought of the slight when the actor visited The Tonight Show last night. “It may have to do with several things, honestly, but I think it’s possible… I mean, I am a… I’m a declared out of the closet Republican in Hollywood,” said Grammer. He went on to say, “Do I believe it’s possible that some young person, young voting actor — or even older voting member for the Emmys — would sit there and go, ‘Yeah, that’s a great performance, but ooooooooooooh, I just hate everything he stands for?’ [Cue sarcasm.] I don’t believe that’s possible.” Watch below:

The nominees for the 2012 Emmy Awards were announced on July 19, and what better way to spend your weekend than catching up on the shows that you missed. We found a few ways you might be able to get up to speed on some of our favorite nominees.

Downton Abbey — Amazon Instant has the second season of Downton available for streaming (and the DVD has been available since February). The show is also on iTunes, and Netflix has season 1.


Emmy Awards: The year's best commercials

As well as honoring TV programming, the Emmys also recognize the year’s best commercials. In the five considered here for the Outstanding Commercial Emmy, we get a real sense of how creative television advertisements can be, with wildly different content in each.

Emmys throw Carl Reiner a digital 90th-birthday bash

Not everyone makes it to 90. Even for those who do, not everyone gets the digital treatment from the Emmys, which celebrates Carl Reiner’s 90th birthday today with a host of photo and video moments from the star’s storied career.

Emmys.com worked with the Television Academy Foundation’s Archive of American Television to compile clips and tributes to the comic from over the years, including interviews with Reiner, as well as highlights from last year’s “An Evening with Carl Reiner” event at the Television Academy.

Reiner, an actor, writer, director, and producer who created The Dick Van Dyke Show, has been a legend in Hollywood since the early ’50s, when he was a regular featured performer on Your Show of Shows. Since then, Reiner performed alongside Mel Brooks in their iconic “2000 Year Old Man,” wrote films like Enter Laughing and The Jerk (which he co-wrote with Steve Martin), and directed cult classics like Where’s Poppa? and Oh, God! — and that’s just a glimpse at his accomplishments. Watch video of last year’s Television Academy celebration below: READ FULL STORY

EWwy winner Courteney Cox would like to kiss EW's...ewe

Well this is a delightful way to kick off a weekend. I’m suddenly more ready than ever to pound some grape!

“I’m not kissing your butt,” she claims. “But Thank You so much EW!!!!!”

Invisible opera gloves to you, Courteney!

Cougar Town‘s midseason premiere can’t come soon enough.

From the EW Archives: Emmy winner Melissa McCarthy's EW Pop Culture Personality Test

If there was a belle of this year’s Emmys ball, it would have to be Mike & Molly‘s Melissa McCarthy, who was crowned best lead actress in a comedy series. It was a triumphant moment for an actress who, in the last year, went from having her right to star on a sitcom about two people falling in love questioned, to being the breakout star of the box office hit Bridesmaids and landing an upcoming spot hosting Saturday Night Live (Oct. 1). EW’s long been a fan of Groundlings alum McCarthy, an unsung hero on Gilmore Girls and Samantha Who?, and in 2009, we got to know her better with an EW Pop Culture Personality Test. Like all good comedy, it still holds up… READ FULL STORY
