Don’t look for Cherry Jones to win an Emmy this year.
The actress, who played the president on “24,” has withdrawn her name from possible nominees, according to The Advocate. Jones has not given any indication as to why she is declining to enter the race.
Jones snagged the award last year. She is not the first actress to refuse to throw her hat in the ring. In 2008, actress Katherine Heigl announced she was dropping out of the race because she didn’t feel the material she was given to work with on “Grey’s Anatomy” warranted a nomination.
