Don’t let the fact that the WGA showed up for the SAG solidarity thing fool you, actors and writers are not friends. Not even close.

Grey’s Anatomy star Katherine Heigl bowed out of the Emmy race this year because:

“I 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, I withdrew my name from contention,” she tells Gold Derby. “In addition, I did not want to potentially take away an opportunity from an actress who was given such materials.”
