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

July 14, 2011 | 10:33 am

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.
