Exclusive Scott 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 our sources — 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. our sources 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.
