Ellen Pompeo Catches a Flight, Slams Emmys
She’s not usually the outspoken type, but Ellen Pompeo took aim at the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards.
The “Catch Me If You Can” actress, who showed up at JFK Airport in New York City with her husband Chris Ivery and daughter Stella on Tuesday (September 24), couldn’t believe the lack of diversity at this year’s installment of the iconic event.
Ellen told press, "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?"
Meanwhile, Pompeo praised the composition of her own “Grey’s Anatomy” cast. "I'm extremely proud of our very, very diverse cast which represents the world that I walk around in every day."
