Jay Leno, Conan O'Brien
He may have gotten snubbed in favor of his failed successor Conan O'Brien, but Jay Leno still managed to poke fun at his Emmy shutout on The Tonight Show Thursday.
"The big show business news is that the Emmy nominations were announced today," Leno joked during his monologue. "The good news: The Tonight Show got four nominations! The bad news: I didn't get one of them."

It's hard to recall the last time a list of Emmy nominations prompted such an outpouring of glee.
But with so many new shows and fresh faces in the various categories, along with amending at least one long-time snub (the lead Friday Night Lights actors!) while delivering a giddy slap in the face to the establishment—take that, NBC; we're nominating Conan's short-lived Tonight Show over Jay's—there's much more reason to celebrate this year than to gripe. Click here for the full list of nominations.
Let's break it down by genre.

Mel Gibson, Oksana Grigorieva
Mel Gibson could be in hot water again.
Just one week after Gibson's slur-filled rant against former girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva surfaced online, the actor is being investigated by Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department for a possible domestic violence incident between the pair, the Sheriff's department tells TVGuide.com.
"There have been allegations brought forth by his former girlfriend," said spokesman Steve Whitmore. "We interviewed the alleged victim on Monday, which officially launched our investigation."

Eric Stonestreet can add "Emmy nominee" to his resume now, but the Modern Family actor isn't expecting any special treatment after today.
"My girlfriend asked if she has to call me 'Emmy nominee' from now on this morning. I said no!" Stonestreet tells TVGuide.com. "I never set out to be nominated for anything, but I always knew it was possible if I was doing the job I hoped to be doing. It's just really nice to say I've been acknowledged by my peers and that people respect the work that I'm doing. I take it very seriously. I'm just...
Friday Night Lights, Kyle Chandler
"How 'bout that?" says an overjoyed lead actor in a drama nominee Kyle Chandler, calling from Texas, where he's filming Friday Night Lights. "When I found out this morning, my daughter Katherine said, 'You got nominated!' I was trying to sleep so I didn't know what she was doing. But when it dawned on me, the first thing I said was, 'Did Connie [Britton] get nominated?' When she said yes, that was the icing on the cake that made it all real."
Like Britton, it has been emotional for Chandler to...
Katey Sagal and Kurt Sutter
