Kurt Sutter thinks Emmy nominations for 'Sons of Anarchy' would lose viewers

By Chelsea Lewis ,

The FX hit drama Sons of Anarchy once again did not fully shine when the Emmy nominations were released Thursday but for fans expecting to hear a rant from the creator Kurt Sutter might have been surprised reading his thoughts on the situation.

Entertainment Weekly reported that even though the show did receive one nomination, for a song. While Bob Thiele Jr., and Noah Gundersen received a nomination for their song, "Day is Gone," in the Original Music and Lyrics category, Sutter had some things to say in guest blog on Nikki Finke.

Sutter explained in his posting that though he does want to win an Emmy and that anyone who says different is lying he added that if Sons was nominated for a major award, such as an Emmy, he believes that they would drop viewers.

"I think we’d drop viewers if ‘Sons of Anarchy‘ were ever nominated for an Emmy. My bombastic outlaw-a--hole reputation would be tarnished. Or rather, untarnished," wrote Sutter.

He went on to elaborate on what that statement meant. "I’d be just another smiling douchebag in a new suit, pretending to give a s--- on the red carpet. Actually…taking a s--- on the red carpet, that’s something that might drop as a ‘real and honest moment.’”

Sons of Anarchy enters its final season this year, with rockers Marilyn Manson and Courtney Love guest starring. A teaser trailer for the final season has just been released online.
