Sons of Anarchy’s Kurt Sutter Tweets Away His Rage at Emmy Snub

Kurt Sutter.

Sons of Anarchy was snubbed by the Emmys this morning. It didn't receive a Best Drama nod and Katey Sagal, who was considered a contender in the Best Drama Actress category, didn't get a nomination either. Kurt Sutter, Sons of Anarchy's creator, showrunner, and also Sagal's husband, did not take this lying down, because, basically, Kurt Sutter doesn't take anything lying down (even despite his recent blog post about how he "decided for the good of the village, it's best if I drop out of all award conversation" and "now understands the shortcomings of my bombastic rants"). The result is a theatrically incensed string of tweets, starting with "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," and running through, among others, "me, david simon and frank darabont are meeting at home depot to rent chainsaws and woodchippers," "broke into an academy member's porn locker. found sticky fully-clothed photos of mariska hargitay, kathy bates ... and matt weiner. very odd," and ending with, "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."
