'Sons of Anarchy' Creator Slams Emmys for Snub; Attacks 'Glee'
Kurt Sutter rants on Twitter after his show and his wife Katey Sagal don’t receive nominations.
Other than being the creator and showrunner of FX’s Son’s of Anarchy, Kurt Sutter may be a little bit psychic.
The day before the announcement of the Emmy nominations, Kurt Sutter tweeted that neither his show nor his wife, actress Katey Sagal, would receive Emmy nominations.
“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 wrote.

Today, when his prediction became a reality, Kurt Sutter took to the Twitterverse to express his anger and disappointment with more than a dozen tweets.
“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 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--king choir.”

Sutter even made a jab at another show, which was very blessed by the Academy gods.
“F--k glee. hate those annoying, 'please accept me for who I am', singing brats. there, I said it. are you happy?”
Sutter’s rant ended on a lighter note, claiming that it was all in jest.
“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.”
