EMMYS: ‘Sons Of Anarchy’ Creator Lashes Out At TV Academy & ‘Glee’ Over Snub

Nellie Andreeva

The always unfiltered Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter took to Twitter today to vent over the fact that his hit FX series did not land a single Emmy nomination. That included a snub of co-star (and Sutter’s wife) Katey Sagal, who won a Golden Globe for her role on the show in January. “The worse part of not getting an Emmy nod — Katey promised me a threesome if she won. Now I have to settle for me, her and the shaved bunny,” Sutter tweeted, adding, “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 ammonia… 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.”

Last summer, Sutter called the Emmy voting system “flawed.” Most of his barbs today were directed at the TV Academy and its relatively high median age, which he blames for his show’s snub. “Most Emmy voters think Quinn Martin is still a player… Two academy member walk into a bar. One orders a beer. Then they both die because they’re so fucking old… Saw two Academy members on the golf course. One asked the other what club to use. Then they both died because they were so fucking old… 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.”

Sutter also alluded that networks may be buying Emmys, addressed the Emmy shutout of David Simon’s Treme and Frank Darabont’s The Walking Dead (“Me, David Simon and Frank Darabont are meeting at Home Depot to rent chainsaws and woodchippers”) and took a shot at Fox’s Glee, which is produced by 20th TV, whose Fox 21 division produces SOA.

TCA: ‘Sons of Anarchy’ Star Charlie Hunnam Thinks The Emmys Are ‘A Crock Of Shit’

By | Tuesday August 3, 2010 @ 2:40pm PDT

Ray Richmond is contributing to Deadline’s TCA and Emmy coverage.

Charlie Hunnam, the star of the FX biker drama Sons of Anarchy, made like his character and didn’t mince too many words while describing the Sons’ Emmy snub on Tuesday during an FX session on the show. “I personally don’t subscribe to Emmys or awards or any of that shit. I think it’s all a crock of shit,” he said. “It’s all just so corrupting. We weren’t on he receiving end of a force that can change the dynamic of what we’re doing. All of that crap is just secondary and completely unimportant but does have the potential to ruin a good thing. So let me just say fuck ‘em.”

Sons creator/exec producer Kurt Sitter sounded a somewhat more circumspect tone on the issue, deciding not to use any profanity but also equally un-thrilled. “Here’s what I’ll say about it: Half the stories you see the day of the nominations are about the nominations, and the other half are about the absurdity of the nominations and the snubs,” he maintained. “To me, this says the system is somewhat flawed.”
