Washington Pulls Himself Out Of The Emmys

GREY'S ANATOMY star ISAIAH WASHINGTON has pulled himself out of the Emmy Awards race following the controversy surrounding a homophobic remark he made about castmate T.R. Knight. The actor 'outed' Knight last year (Oct06) by calling him a 'faggot' during an on-set row with castmate Patrick Dempsey. The controversy rumbled into 2007 when Washington uttered the derogatory gay term again backstage at the Golden Globe Awards, claiming he never used the word in the first place. He has since accepted he was wrong on both occasions, apologised to gay community leaders and undergone counselling. But Washington obviously doesn't think he'll find a lot of favour among Emmy voters and so he's the only Grey's Anatomy cast member not to submit himself for consideration, according to trade paper Daily Variety.
