Charlie Hunnam, the star of the FX biker drama Sons of Anarchy, made like his character and didn’t mince too many words while describing the Sons’ Emmy snub on Tuesday during an FX session on the show. “I personally don’t subscribe to Emmys or awards or any of that shit. I think it’s all a crock of shit,” he said. “It’s all just so corrupting. We weren’t on he receiving end of a force that can change the dynamic of what we’re doing. All of that crap is just secondary and completely unimportant but does have the potential to ruin a good thing. So let me just say fuck ’em.”
Sons creator/exec producer Kurt Sitter sounded a somewhat more circumspect tone on the issue, deciding not to use any profanity but also equally un-thrilled. “Here’s what I’ll say about it: Half the stories you see the day of the nominations are about the nominations, and the other half are about the absurdity of the nominations and the snubs,” he maintained. “To me, this says the system is somewhat flawed.”
