The actor told reporters at the show's Television Critics Association panel that he did not consider the awards to be important.
"I personally was really happy [at the snub]," he explained. "I don't subscribe to Emmys or awards or any of that s**t."
He added: "I was happy that... we weren't on the receiving end of a force that could change the dynamic that we have. All of that crap, I think, is secondary and... has the potential to ruin a good thing."
The show's creator Kurt Sutter, who previously blasted the Emmy awards on his blog, suggested that the nomination process was unfair.
"All I have to say is half the stories are about the nominations and the other half of the stories are about the absurdity of the nominations and the snubs," he said. "The system is somewhat flawed."
The third season of Sons of Anarchy begins on FX on September 7.
