Katherine Heigl won for Best Supporting Actress in a drama (Grey’s Anatomy) at last year’s Emmy awards, but this year, she doesn’t think she’s worthy. And she ain’t bullshitting. Katherine declined to even put her name down for a nomination bid. The AP reports:
“I did not feel that I was given the material this season to warrant an Emmy nomination and in an effort to maintain the integrity of the academy organization” decided against competing, Heigl said in a written statement provided by her publicist, Melissa Kates, who was contacted by the AP.
“In addition, I did not want to potentially take away an opportunity from an actress who was given such materials,” added Heigl.
Okay, I can understand modesty, but I’m pretty sure Katherine Heigl just pissed in the faces of her show’s writers. That’s nice. I look forward to this season’s premiere when her character becomes a paraplegic coke mule that steals babies and eventually dies from the Ebola virus – during the opening credits. Grey’s Anatomy: don’t miss it!
