Stephen Colbert has achieved the unimaginable – he’s been nominated twice in the same Emmy category. “First for the ‘Report,’ and then again for ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,’” he joked on last night’s “Report.” Last month, in a segment called “Who’s Riding My Coattails,” Colbert showed a copy of the DVD package sent by NBC to Emmy voters, and feigned shock in discovering that the “Late Night” submission featured a photo of him and Fallon together. “We’re competing in the same category, Jimmy!” he said. “You’re trying to beat me with me!”

Both “Late Night” and the “Report” were nominated on Thursday. “Jimmy, good luck to you. By which I mean, good luck to me,” Colbert continued last night. “May the best Stephen Colbert win.”
