Kelsey Grammer On Emmy Snub: It’s Because I’m A Republican

Actor Kelsey Grammer discussed his Emmy-snub for his hit-show Boss on Starz with Jay Leno on Tuesday.

Grammer, 57, won a Golden Globe last January for his role in Boss. When Leno pressed why he was overlooked for an Emmy nomination, Grammer said it might have to do with his political views.

“It’s a question that will remain one for me throughout the ages,” 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.”

But Grammer said he doesn’t believe that’s the case.

“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 oooooooh, I just hate everything he stands for’?” he said.
