Kelsey Grammer Blames Liberals For Snub
Kelsey Grammer Blames Liberals For Snub, The actor claims his outspoken political stance may have cost him a big honor in Hollywood. Kelsey Grammer says being Republican cost him an Emmy nomination [Video], Did Kelsey Grammer’s political leanings lead to his recent Emmy snub? He sure seems to think so.
Grammer won a Golden Globe for his chilling portrayal of power-mad mayor Tom Kane on the Starz political drama “Boss,” but he didn’t even get a nomination at this year’s Emmys. Chatting with Jay Leno last night on “The Tonight Show,” Grammer offered up a theory for the oversight: “It may have to do with several things, honestly. I think it’s possible… I mean, I am a declared, out-of-the-closet Republican in Hollywood.” He went on to say, “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, ‘Oh yeah, that’s a great performance, but oooh, I just hate everything he stands for?’ I don’t believe that’s possible,” adding a sarcastic smile for effect.
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.
