Tweeter's Digest: TV folks tweet about the 2011 Emmy nominations

Lynch Emmy nominations are announced at the crack of dawn, designed to catch celebs at their most tired and vulnerable.

Amid all the joyful congratulations and "I'm so grateful" messages -- among them Martha Plimpton of "Raising Hope" (@marthaplimpton) and "Glee" star Jane Lynch (@janemarielynch) -- were a few tweets from and about those snubbed. Kyra Sedgwick (@KyraSedgwick), who won best actress for "The Closer" last year but wasn't nominated this time, gracefully gave a nod to her costar Mary McDonnell, who is up for an award. Nominated "Modern Family" producer Steven Levitan (@SteveLevitan) sent condolences to not-nominated "Community" creator Dan Harmon (@DanHarmon).

But the award for Emmy nomination tweets should go to prolific tweeter Kurt Sutter (@sutterink), creator of "Sons of Anarchy," who joked that he, "Walking Dead" creator Frank Darabont and "Treme" creator David Simon -- all left off the best drama list this year -- would wreak vengeance.
