Kelsey Grammer says being Republican cost him an Emmy nomination [Video]

Yahoo TV

Now Grammer seemed to be bringing this up mostly in jest, but it is true that conservatives are a rare breed in Hollywood. Still, Grammer does already have five Emmys and a total of 14 nominations (most coming from his years as Dr. Frasier Crane on "Cheers" and "Frasier"), so it's not as if he's always been ignored by the TV academy. Jay even pushed him on that point, but Grammer joked that he became a Republican "just after that last [Emmy win]." (Not true: Grammer scored Emmys in 2004 and 2006 years after contributing to George W. Bush's 2001 presidential inauguration fund.)

But it wasn't all heavy political talk last night: The 57-year-old Grammer also revealed that he's proven his love for new wife Kayte Walsh by getting a tattoo of her name on his lower abdomen, even dropping trou to show off his ink to the "Tonight Show" audience. Paging Dr. Crane: We may have a serious midlife crisis brewing here.
