There has been a lot of talk about how soft Fallon is on politics, and MAYBE that had something to do with it, because most of the other nominees go out of their way to tackle political issues. And politics seemed to drive ratings over the past year.
But then again, SETH MEYERS hits politics hard, and "Late Night" wasn't nominated . . . so maybe it's just that people are getting tired of Fallon's shtick of goofing off and playing frat games with celebrities.
To be clear, "Late Night" did get a nomination for writing, and "The Tonight Show" got one for Outstanding Interactive Program, whatever that is.
Other "snubs" that were not nominated in major categories this year include: "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee", "Insecure", "The Good Fight", "The Big Bang Theory", "Mr. Robot", and "The Young Pope".
Lena Dunham and "Girls" were also absent from the major categories, as was "Bloodline" and "The Leftovers". And while "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks" did get a nomination for best TV movie, Oprah Winfrey didn't earn an individual nomination for her acting.
