‘Grey’s’ Washington nixes Emmy bid

Co-star withdraws from consideration

Don’t expect to see any acceptance speeches from Isaiah Washington at this year’s Emmys.

The “Grey’s Anatomy” co-star has decided not to submit himself for supporting actor consideration.

It wasn’t the best TV season for Washington, who allegedly slurred castmate T.R. Knight on the set last October and got into a fight with Patrick Dempsey over the incident. In January, Washington exacerbated the situation, which had largely blown over, when he told the worldwide media attending the Golden Globes that the slur never occurred but used offensive language to make his point.

Washington probably figured he wouldn’t receive much love from Emmy voters anyway, and it’s smart to stay away from high-profile events where the media might be looking for additional, and controversial, soundbites.

All the other “Grey’s Anatomy” actors besides leads Ellen Pompeo and Dempsey are submitting in the supporting category.
