Currently, there is an email chain clogging the inboxes of EW’s TV department, and it began with a link to Tom O’Neil’s Gold Derby awards blog and the question, “She’s trying to get out of the show, isn’t she?”

The she is Grey’s Anatomy Emmy winner Katherine Heigl, who was asked by Gold Derby to explain why her name wasn’t on the TV Academy’s list of Emmy contenders. Her response: “I did not feel that I was given the material this season to warrant anEmmy nomination and in an effort to maintain the integrity of theacademy organization, I withdrew my name from contention. In addition, I did not want to potentially take away anopportunity from an actress who was given such materials.”

Was this selfless act noble, presumptuous, or a clear attempt to piss off the Grey‘s producers so they’ll send her far, far away (to a place where she can pursue that film career year round)?

Grey's Anatomy

Meredith. Alex. Bailey. The doctors are definitely in on Shonda Rhimes' hospital melodrama.
