From what I hear the Emmys rather sucked on Sunday. I’m glad I didn’t waste my time, to be honest. Most people who watched them thought they were a total bore. Even Neil Patrick Harris, who is usually flawless, didn’t do well. Anyway, Ellen Pompeo, who stars in ‘Greys Anatomy’ says that there are far too many white people on TV, and would like to see more diversity.
Safe to say, Ellen Pompeo was not a fan of the Emmy show on Sunday night. During an interview with the Associated Press on Monday, the Ã¢â¬ÅGreyÃ¢â¬â¢s AnatomyÃ¢â¬Â star shared her startlingly candid views on the telecast, which featured a lackluster performance by host Neil Patrick Harris, a little singing and dancing, and several surprise wins.
Pompeo told the AP that she was Ã¢â¬Åreally disappointedÃ¢â¬Â by the show. But she didnÃ¢â¬â¢t leave it there. She actually elaborated on what she disliked.
Ã¢â¬ÅI didnÃ¢â¬â¢t see any diversity in the Emmys at all,Ã¢â¬Â she said. Ã¢â¬ÅThe Emmys felt so dated to me.Ã¢â¬Â
She even had it in for the song-and-dance number in the middle of the broadcast, saying, Ã¢â¬ÅThat dance number was embarrassing. Did you see one person of color in that dance number?Ã¢â¬Â
Pompeo herself has never been nominated for an Emmy, but she did pick up a PeopleÃ¢â¬â¢s Choice Award earlier this year as favorite dramatic TV actress.
Despite mixed feelings about the actual content of the show, enough curious viewers tuned in to make it the highest-rated Emmys since 2007.
Here’s the real question – haven’t the Emmy’s ALWAYS seemed so dated? I mean honestly….they’ve always been a bore. Maybe Ellen is just bitter because she’s never won an Emmy.
