After calling the members of the Academy too old to understand his show, Kurt Sutter tweets he is 'really okay with no noms.'
While many are celebrating their Emmy Award nominations, Kurt Sutter is not that happy for his show "Sons of Anarchy" and his actress wife Katey Sagal do not get any nods. The 51-year-old writer had predicted this before, but when it was proven to be true he took to his Twitter page to sound his disappointment.
"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," he tweeted after the nominees were announced on Thursday morning, July 14. In another post, he wrote, "FNL gives me hope. maybe S7 of SOA will get nominated -- when the guys have all become doctors and lawyers who sing in a f***ing choir."
The creator of "SOA" even took a jab at another show which gets multiple recognitions at the upcoming ceremony, stating "f**k glee. hate those annoying, 'please accept me for who i am', singing brats. there, i said it. are you happy?" He, however, explained, "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."
Later, Sutter wrote a more positive message which read, "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." He even hinted that these rants were only jokes as he tweeted, "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."
On his early prediction, Sutter thought the show would not get any Emmy noms because it is "too dirty, too bloody, too pulpy" for the Academy.
