During his nightly monologue, Leno "playfully" pointed out that while his show received four nominations, he received none. The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences instead chose to recognize Conan O'Brien, the man who Leno robbed of "The Tonight Show." Sure, the entertainment news shows and the gossip columnists will claim Leno is a "class act" who is "being gracious in defeat." But watch this video for about 15 seconds, and tell me his fake smile and involuntary hand slaps aren't vain attempts to hide the urge to kill! (Deadline) See Jay Leno trying desperately to suppress his rage after the jump.
