Isaiah Washington Decides Against Emmy Try
LOS ANGELES (AP) - April 20, 2007 -- Isaiah Washington has decided this is not a good year to try for an Emmy Award.
The "Grey's Anatomy" star, who came under fire after using an anti-gay slur, didn't submit his name for nominations consideration, Washington's publicist, Howard Bragman, said Friday.
"It's all about the acting, not the awards," Bragman said.
Washington ran into trouble at another awards show in January, the Golden Globes. He used the epithet during a backstage interview while denying he'd used it previously against castmate T.R. Knight.
After being criticized by the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation and the ABC network, Washington issued an apology and sought counseling.
The actor has not been previously nominated for the hit medical drama series, which is in its third season.
The deadline for putting names into contention was Friday. The awards are set for Sept. 16.
