Yesterday the 2011 Emmy Awards nominations were released and missing from the nomination list was FX’s ‘Son’s of Anarchy’, this didn’t settle too well with creator Kurt Sutter who took to his Twitter account to unleash a rant about his unhappiness.
The day before the nominations were released Kurt wrote on his Twitter that he doesn’t think he or his wife, Katey Sagal, will be nominated. He said “I will tell you now, the day before, Katey will not be nominated. SOA will never crack the golden lining. Too dirty, too bloody, too pulpy.”
He was certainly right because none of them got a nomination so he immediately took to his account again and started off by saying the worst thing about not getting nominated is that his wife promised him a threesome. He said “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.”
Then he went on to say that the “best part of not getting an emmy nod. now i don’t have to pretend i give a s**t about the profiteering douchebag 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**k.”
Then he went on to put up a couple of jokes, the first saying “these two academy member walk into a bar. one orders a beer. then they both die because they’re so fucking old.” The second one was “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,” and finally “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.”
After this he decided to take a shot at Glee, which received a few nominations, he said “F–k glee. hate those annoying, ‘please accept me for who I am’, singing brats. there, I said it. are you happy?” But then he started to backtrack by saying he loves Glee creator, Ryan Murphy. “He’s always very cool with me. love glee too. just tired of all the j**z piling up at its feet,” is what he said about that.
The backtracking didn’t stop there though because he said the whole thing was a joke, he said “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,” followed by “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.”
Do you think he was joking the whole time or do you think he was genuinely pissed off and then decided to backtrack?
