How Refreshing...!

I thought this was pleasant to read... now if only her brand of honesty and humility can spill over into corporate circles, and undeserving CEO's of Fortune 500 companies relinquish all performance-based bonus payments. Yeah... right... Grey's Anatomy was created by Shonda Rhimes - a black woman, by the way.

From Yahoo TV News:

'Grey's Anatomy' star Heigl skipping Emmy quest

Katherine Heigl, who was honored as best supporting actress in a drama last year for "Grey's Anatomy" says she didn't seek an Emmy nomination this year because the show failed to deliver the goods for an award-worthy performance.

"I did not feel that I was given the material this season to warrant an Emmy nomination...", Heigl said in a written statement, and decided against competing.

"In addition, I did not want to potentially take away an opportunity from an actress who was given such materials," added Heigl.

Heigl, who shot to box-office success last summer with the comedy "Knocked Up," has established herself as one of Hollywood's rare voices of candor.

In a Vanity Fair magazine interview published in January, she called the hit film "a little sexist" and said that it painted women as "shrews, as humorless and uptight," while the male characters were lovable and goofy.

Heigl also was outspoken when "Grey's" castmates Isaiah Washington and T.R. Knight clashed last year over Washington's alleged use of a homophobic slur.

"I'm going to be really honest right now, he needs to just not speak in public. Period," Heigl said at one point of Washington, who ended up being booted from the medical drama.
