Gold Derby, Los Angeles Times award show blog, was first to astutely notice that Katherine Heigl was absent from this year’s Emmy submissions. When the blog contacted her rep to see if it was a case (like last year) of her not wanting to be submitted, her rep said that her omission this year was in fact an error.
There was then a mad scramble to get her on the ballot before voting commenced on Friday, June 4, hence all the hoopla surrounding Heigl’s self-submission for an Emmy. Except there was one minor snafu — Heigl is listed on the official Emmy ballot as playing Dr. Izzie Stevens for “Desperate Housewives,” not “Grey’s Anatomy.” Oops!
Gold Derby says that clearly the goof was made in the last-minute effort to get her added to the ballot and that Emmy reps assure them the goof will be fixed Monday, June 7.
But still — Wisteria Lane is known for their hot ladies having much drama. We think Izzie would fit right in! And below, check out of the screengrab of the ballot before it got fixed.
