The Emmy Awards are this Sunday, but Kelsey Grammer said he won’t be tuning in.
Though he won a Golden Globe for his performance as the sociopathic mayor of Chicago on the Starz series “Boss,” Grammer did not receive an Emmy nomination.
He’s “still at a loss” for why he was snubbed, he said, though he insisted he doesn’t hold a grudge against the TV Academy.
Grammer recently suggested that he didn’t get a nod because liberal-leaning Hollywood was punishing him for being a conservative. However, he told ABC News Radio, “I’ve since come to think that maybe ["Boss"] just hasn’t gotten out there enough, I don’t know.”
Grammer told Jay Leno Aug. 15 he didn’t know why he didn’t snag a nomination.
“Yeah, its hard to figure,” Grammer said. “It may have to do with several things, honestly, but I think it’s possible. I mean, I’m a declared out-of-the-closet Republican in Hollywood.”
Leno suggested the snub may be because “Boss” is on Starz, which many people do not watch.
“Well that’s not good is it,” Grammer replied with a laugh.
