Scott Thorson

Persona Non Grata

At Emmys

9/20/2013 3:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0920-scott-thorson-emmysScott Thorson -- a central character in the HBO movie, "Behind the Candelabra" which has 16 nominations -- is getting anything BUT fabulous treatment, because he's NOT invited to the Emmys.

An Emmy official tells TMZ --  it's simple ... Thorson -- who is played by Emmy nominee Matt Damon  ... doesn't have a ticket and the event is sold out.

It's not as if Liberace's former lover -- who's currently in an outpatient facility for drug abuse -- didn't want to go.  TMZ obtained a letter dated August 8th and written by Scott's drug counselor, asking a drug court judge to give him a weekend pass to attend the Emmys. 

Rather than feeling snubbed, Scott now says it's a good idea that he stay away from Hollywood -- too tempting, and all that.

You may recall ... Scott recently tested positive for meth.  He could have gone to jail on a probation violation but the judge showed him mercy and ordered him to continue outpatient drug counseling.

Um, not to be rude here but doesn't this guy have advanced colon cancer? Shouldn't he be keeping his can at home and getting medical treatment?

Hey! Wasn't there a TV movie about Casey Anthony and one about Jodi Arias? Will they be invited? No? What the hell does he have to do with an award show?

I bet people who have nothing whatsoever to do with the Emmy's (like Rihanna or Snooki) were invited.

This isn't really a story if you look at it. A lot of people are not invited to the Emmy's. It's not like he was uninvited - or even barred from attending.

S***my ya but still he was portrayed in the movie, they should let him in. Doubt he'd be the scuzziest guy in the room

Not a fan of any awards show...they are way too busy kissing themselves on their own butts telling themselves they are wonderful. As far as Scott is concerned...he is way better off miles away from this charade. He has his own health issues with drugs...Hollywood isn't where he should be. I'm just curious what he thought of the movie and Matt Damon playing him?Good luck Scott...I hope you get your act together and stay away from drugs.
