Sons of Anarchy’s Kurt Sutter Goes On Awesome Twitter Rampage Following Emmy Snub
[ Social Media]

As you all probably know, the Emmy nominations were unveiled yesterday. The Emmys, even more than the Oscars in some regards, are notorious for astonishing snubs that make you question yourself, gravity and even humanity. See: The Wire. But that’s a whole other article.

This year, in the Best Drama category we have the HBO series’ Boardwalk Empire and Game of Thrones. We also have Showtime’s Dexter and AMC’s Mad Men. Rounding out the group is the NBC turned DirecTV hit Friday Night Lights.

Absent from that list is FX’s Sons of Anarchy. And in my opinion it is definitely an injustice that Sons‘ unbelievably great season wasn’t valued higher than the meh season that Mad Men threw our way.

Another snub of Sons of Anarchy, according to many, is the lack of Katey Sagal’s name in the Lead Actress category. Even more than the show getting left out of the Best Drama category, this is truly an injustice. Sagal’s Gemma Teller doesn’t just hold the show together, she’s brilliant.

The show’s creator Kurt Sutter was a little miffed by the Emmy noms yesterday, and took to Twitter to express his feelings. What followed was a hilarious, quite NSFW rant that spanned almost 20 tweets. Seriously, it’s great. Here’s how he started it –

my very classy, ever grateful and humble wife forbade me from using the word CUNT today. so i’ll wait till midnight to address the emmy noms 20 hours ago via web · powered by @socialditto

He then discusses his feeling about Glee – first hostile, and later laudatory (kind of) –

fuck glee. hate those annoying, “please accept me for who i am”, singing brats. there, i said it. are you happy? 20 hours ago via web · powered by @socialditto

@PJASchultz i love ryan murphy. he’s always very cool with me. love glee too. just tired of all the jizz piling up at its feet. 16 hours ago via web · powered by @socialditto

Sutter also discussed other snubs, including David Simon’s Treme and Frank Darabont –

me, david simon and frank darabont are meeting at home depot to rent chainsaws and woodchippers. 20 hours ago via web · powered by @socialditto

Sutter then discusses sucking up to the academy, and his opinion of that practice –

the worse part of not getting any emmy nods is all the wasted blowjobs i gave at the academy picnic. my breath still smells like sour amonia 16 hours ago via web · powered by @socialditto

best part of not getting an emmy nod. now i don’t have to pretend i give a shit about the profiteering douchebag academy. 16 hours ago via web · powered by @socialditto

because you know if we were nominated i’d be all humble and blowing smoke up their asses. now i can stay true to myself and just be a dick. 16 hours ago via web · powered by @socialditto

The funniest tweets come from Sutter talking about the age of the academy -

if my mom and dad were alive this emmy snub would kill them. that’s not true, they were too old to understand my show. just like the academy 15 hours ago via web · powered by @socialditto

these two academy member walk into a bar. one orders a beer. then they both die because they’re so fucking old. 15 hours ago via web · powered by @socialditto

saw two academy members on the gold course. one asked the other what club to use. then they both died because they were so fucking old. 15 hours ago via web · powered by @socialditto

At the end of the show, Sutter tweeted this –

you do know that i’m really okay with no noms right? if i was really upset, i wouldn’t be ranting. i’d be plotting. i’m all about the love. 15 hours ago via web · powered by @socialditto

those who got the joke, laughed. those who didn’t, published a story. so sad that greedy media whores must turn good fun into nasty business 5 hours ago via web · powered by @socialditto

Well, I published a story and I laughed. Honestly and having no filter are two qualities I truly love, and this rant exhibited both.

    I read every tweet and laughed at each one. While I wish the show had garnered some noms – at least Katey Sagal – it is actually more fun to read Sutter’s rants than any thing else. So his loss is our gain – in the twitterverse anyway. So I say he should never stop being himself – C-word and all – and I’ll keep reading and laughing and agreeing!

    My husband and I love this show, can’t believe they got nothing! I loved reading Kurt Sutter tweets… :)

  • Peve

    Man that is some serious bullshit. The series might not have as many viewers as that other shit but Katey Sagal is ridiculously stellar. Perfect combo of wife, mother, and biker queen. Fuck em tho I know the truth

  • Deegans

    This is the only show that I have seen such large groups of people get together every week to view without missing an episode. My friends and even some family members that I couldn’t believe would get into something that I love so much won’t miss it. To not nominate something loved by so many people is absurd. It makes no sense whatsoever. Heart attacks sound so wonderful for the academy. They must not have watched a single episode because I they had, they would understood that Sons is the only proper candidate for the award.
