"The Colbert Report," with Stephen Colbert assuming a dismissive, Bill O'Reilly-like persona while commenting on the issues of the day, received three Emmy Award nominations: Outstanding Variety, Music Or Comedy Series, Outstanding Writing For A Variety, Music Or Comedy Series, a category in which it won its first Emmy in 2008, and director Jim Hoskinson was cited for Outstanding Directing For A Variety, Music Or Comedy Series.

The first, primarily for creative arts categories, will take place on Saturday, September 10, while the balance of the Emmys, primarily for the performing arts, will be announced before a black-tie audience during a primetime telecast (NBC) on Sunday, September 18 at the NOKIA Theatre L.A.
