Ellen Pompeo Thought The Emmys Need More “People Of Color”

Hakkassan Restaurant Ellen Pompeo 2013

Ellen Pompeo was not impressed by the 2013 Emmy Awards. I didn’t think I’d have this much to say about the show either, but I felt like her comment was worth sharing. I think it’s going to get a few people talking all over the Internet, unless Ellen Pompeo is too 2008 to get attention. She told USA Today that she was “really disappointed” because,

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?

I guess since Pompeo is on a show known for its diversity (“I’m extremely proud of our very, very diverse cast [of Grey's Anatomy] which represents the world that I walk around in every day”) she’s disappointed when other shows are too, well, white. Her husband, Chris Ivery, is black. She’s come under fire before from Essence for trying to appropriate black culture solely because her husband is black. Or something.

All I can say is yeah, it would be really great if TV shows could have the same “color blind casting” that Grey‘s does. For example, nowhere in the character breakdown did it say that Sandra Oh‘s character was Asian. They just read whoever they thought would be best for the part. By the way, this upcoming season of Grey‘s will be Oh’s last.
