No Emmy for
Isaiah Washington

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 antigay 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 cast mate T.R. Knight.

After being criticized by the Gay and 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 September 16. (AP)
