Will Arnett Discusses His Emmy Chances on 'The Tonight Show' (VIDEO)

Will Arnett, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Will Arnett is nominated for an Emmy, but he's in a tough category this year. When Jay Leno ran down the list of his competitors, Arnett seemed to get less and less confident in his chances on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC).

Even the audience seemed to turn away from him by the time Leno got to Nathan Lane. The category is Guest Actor in a Comedy Series, and he's facing Lane, Zach Galifianakis, Matt Damon and Justin Timberlake.

He was confident when Leno struggled with Galifianakis' name and was still ready when Damon's name came up.

"Do I think I have what it takes to take down Jason Bourne?" he asked. "Yes I do, Jay."

But when Lane came up and the audience cheered, Arnett wavered. By the end, he'd thrown his hands up. "I think I just got nominated because my name starts with an A," he ultimately declared.

I'm sorry, but his new show will bomb and will be cancelled. The star power of his co-star may keep it alive for one season.
