Jul 14, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Kurt Sutter, creator of FX’s "Sons of Anarchy," blasted the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for being ignored in the major primetime Emmy categories when nominations were announced on Thursday, July 14, 2011, writes James Hibberd at EW.com’s Inside TV blog.

Sutter is married to "Sons of Anarchy" star Katy Sagal, who won a Golden Globe for her role in the series earlier this year.

According to the article, "In a series of profane Tweets, Sutter mocked Emmy voters as out of touch: ‘Best part of not getting an emmy nod. now i don’t have to pretend i give a s— about the profiteering d-bag academy. … 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 d—.’ ”

After giving a few more examples of his profane Tweets, Hibberd writes, "And finally (for now): ‘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.’ ”
