Bill Maher, the host of HBO’s "Real Time With Bill Maher," tells The Hollywood Reporter why he believes he’ll never win an Emmy: his lack of religious belief.
Maher, an atheist, says, "A panel of like 10 people watches one tape. If half of those people are religious, that probably eliminates me right there. A lot of people wouldn’t vote for such an outspoken atheist."
He adds that he doesn’t believe writer Christopher Hitchens, another outspoken atheist, will make a deathbed conversion "because I don’t think he’s going to die." He added, "He’s not a fearful guy, so it’s not going to happen."
