Behold - Emmy controversy that doesn't involve Katherine Heigl at all!

According to the Los Angeles Times, some omissions from the Emmy Awards' top 10 lists may have been due to (wait for it) a lack of a photo next to their names on the official eligibility lists that voters use as a reminder of contenders when checking off ballots.

One of the most notable people snubbed says this is indeed the case.

The lists appeared online and did not include pictures of several stars who got snubbed: Calista Flockhart (Brothers & Sisters), Matthew Fox (Lost), Kelsey Grammer (Back to You), Ellen Pompeo (Grey's Anatomy) and Kate Walsh (Private Practice).

Many other stars didn't have their photos posted online when Emmy voting began, but scrambled to provide them and they were added later.

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.
