Ellen Pompeo Blasts Emmy Awards as "Outdated"
As another Primetime Emmy Awards has come and gone, and the winners and losers are being debated, Ellen Pompeo had some harsh words for the broadcast.
The “Grey’s Anatomy” star criticized what she called a lack of diversity in the show, telling reporters, "I didn't see any diversity in the Emmys at all. The Emmys felt so dated to me. That dance number was embarrassing. Did you see one person of color in that dance number?"
Continuing, the actress said she is proud of the diversity portrayed in her show, which begins its tenth season on Thursday (September 26).
"I'm extremely proud of our very, very diverse cast which represents the world that I walk around in every day," Ellen said.
