"Grey's" Heigl refuses to take Emmy nomination

Props to Katherine Heigl for recognizing that her work on "Grey's Anatomy" is sub-par and should not be rewarded with an equally worthless award.

Heigl has apparently declined to put her name into consideration for a Primetime Emmy nod for playing Dr. Izzie Stevens on the melodramtic catastrophe that is "Grey's Anatomy," saying she "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."

Anyone's who's watched the show -- which somehow is still in the top ten despite slipping in the ratings -- knows it struggled this season -- and not just because of the writers' strike. Although it recaptured some of its original intrigue in the season's final episodes, "Grey's" is no longer must-see TV and Heigl's Stevens has replaced Ellen Pompeo's title character as one of television's most annoying.

But then again, the Emmy Awards are well-known for awarding mediocre fare and passing over more subtle material (these are the same folks who failed to ever nominate Lauren Graham for her work on "The Gilmore Girls" -- quite possibly the biggest snub in TV history).

Nominations for the 60th Primetime Emmy Awards will be announced July 17. The ceremony is Sept. 21.

Any other actors or actresses you'd like to see decline to put their name in for an Emmy? (ahem Charlie Sheen ahem).

Here, here on Lauren Graham. Her baffling snubbing year after year is the reason I don't watch the Emmys. Also I don't care about the Emmys. That's another reason.
