Stephen's Emmy Award nominations might lead to an Emmy three-way. (1:49)

PRAY FOR THEM.

I CERTAINLY HOPE LOS ANGELES

SURVIVES BECAUSE I'VE GOT TO BE

OUT IN L.A. OR THE BIG ANGEL, AS

THEY SAY, IN JUST A COUPLE

MONTHS.

I DON'T WANT TO BUT IT'S

BUSINESS BECAUSE THIS MORNING I

GOT NOMINATED FOR AN EMMY.

[CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]

YEP.

YES.

THIS IS WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE IN

PERSON.

[AUDIENCE CHANTING "STEPHEN"]

YES.

[CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]

I SEE THESE PEOPLE ON THE RED

CARPET.

NOW I'VE ALREADY GOT TWO FOR THE

SHOW, SO THIS COULD POSSIBLY

LEAD TO AN EMMY THREE-WAY.

SEE.

THEY'RE ALL GIRLS.

I CHECKED.

[LAUGHTER]

NOW, "THE REPORT" IS NOMINATED

FOR BEST DIRECTING, BEST WRITING

AND BEST LATE NIGHT SHOW.

UNBELIEVABLY WE WERE ONCE AGAIN

SNUBBED FOR OUTSTANDING

ACHIEVEMENT IN PROSTHETIC

MAKE-UP.

PEOPLE JUST DON'T REALIZE THAT

UNDER THIS I'M LIKE ADMIRAL

ACKBAR.

[LAUGHTER]

BUT FOR THE FIRST TIME, I WAS

NOMINATED TWICE IN THE SAME

CATEGORY, FIRST FOR "THE

REPORT," AND THEN AGAIN FOR LATE

NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON, SINCE

AS YOU'LL RECALL HE USED MY

TRADEMARK IMAGE ON HIS EMMY

SCREENER SENT OUT TO THE VOTERS.

NOW HE IS MY BEST FRIEND FOR SIX

MONTHS, SO, JIMMY, GOOD LUCK TO

YOU, BY WHICH I MEAN GOOD LUCK
