Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo has slammed Sunday night’s Emmy Awards ceremony, describing it as ‘dated’ and ‘really’ disappointing.
Pompeo told The Associated Press on Monday that she was ‘really disappointed’ in the broadcast, complaining, ‘That dance number was embarrassing. Did you see one person of color in that dance number?’
‘I didn’t see any diversity in the Emmys at all. The Emmys felt so dated to me,’ she said.
But for her long running series Grey’s Anatomy, Pompeo couldn’t have been more proud.
‘I’m extremely proud of our very, very diverse cast which represents the world that I walk around in every day,’ she told AP.
