Katherine Heigl Upsets 'Grey's' Staff with Emmy Snub

Katherine Heigl has upset staff on the set of Grey's Anatomy after withdrawing from the Emmy awards as part of a protest about her character's development on the hit show.

The actress insisted her name be left off the official ballot because she felt her character was awful during the most recent season of the medical drama.

But the move has disgruntled workers on the program.

A source tells Entertainment Weekly magazine, "The show bent over backwards to accommodate her film schedule, and then she criticizes the show for lack of material?

"It's an ungrateful slap in the face to the very writers responsible for her Emmy win in the first place."

Heigl won the Best Supporting Actress award at the Emmys last year. She has since established herself as a movie star with roles in Knocked Up and 27 Dresses.
