Katherine Heigl + Emmy + Grey’s Anatomy = Murder?
There are reports coming in that claim that Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes is thinking about killing off Heigl’s on screen character Izzie Stevens because Heigl complained about the writing of her character when she was asked why she didn’t submit her name this year. So because the woman didn’t lie and cover for Rhimes when she was asked about the “Emmys snub” she is going to get killed off? I am sorry, but that is just plain bullshit! So what’s next, are they going to bring back the gay basher and say that everything is great over in Grey’s land? Hey Shonda Rhimes, I have a great idea for you, why not just start producing some better scripts and then maybe you wouldn’t have actors speaking out against you. Correct me if I am wrong, but wasn’t Katherine Heigl out supporting the writers during the strike? This is exactly what Heigl said to the press about not submitting her name, Heigl said, "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. In addition, I did not want to potentially take away an opportunity from an actress who was given such materials." In my eyes, I think that she did the right thing. She didn’t come out and say that the writing was terrible this season for her character and that she felt that the writers dropped the ball. She was very polite about the situation and I think that Rhimes needs to get off her ass and start writing the show that was so good when it premiered instead of trying to win awards with stunt episodes aimed at getting Emmys. Now, my rant is over. Thank you.
