Isaiah Washington Won't Submit His Name For Emmy Awards Consideration
Grey's Anatomy star Isaiah Washington will not be submitting his name for Best Actor or Best Supporting Actor Emmy consideration, Entertainment Weekly reports.

No reason for his decision has been reported, but this doesn't come as a shock.

Meanwhile, all the other Grey's Anatomy stars, besides stars Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey, who are going for Best Actress and Actor, respectively are submitting in the Best Supporting Actor and Supporting Actress categories.

While he is certainly worthy of Best Actor or Supporting Actor honors, Washington probably wishes to remain out of the award-show spotlight, given the controversy he sparked in recent months. Which is probably a wise move, as his remarks about T.R. Knight would likely cloud his accomplishments.

Hopefully, he'll get the recognition he deserves next season, when all this has blown over and his fine work on Grey's Anatomy will once again be the focus.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
