If you enjoyed this year's Emmy Awards, don't tell that to Ellen Pompeo!

The star of the five-time Emmy winning Grey's Anatomy found the 2013 ceremony to be completely lacking of diversity — something you wouldn't think to be such an issue in 2013!

Her feelings are blunt and clear as she says:

"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'm extremely proud of our very, very diverse cast, which represents the world that I walk around in every day."

Harsh words or much needed words??

We think we could all go for a lil' more diversity!!

We only got to see sexy Blair Underwood for, like, a second!

    Maybe the white dancers were the best fucking dancers that time. Jesus Christ. Someone should get the part just because they're not white??! Go fuck yourself you over sensitive twat.

    I am so sick of the injection of race into every single thing. Hey why don't we judge people by the content of their character, their skill and ability and NOT on the color of their skin.

    I'm pretty sure Napoleon Dumo, one of the choreographers up for an emmy, is a person of colour. He was in the number.

    Each choreographer was allowed to choose their own dancers for the show. It was a big event with lots of exposure so of course they are going to choose their own friends and people who they are familiar with. There were a lot of SYTYCD dancers in the number (Melanie Moore, Nick Lazzarini, Jaimie Goodwin, Kayla Radomski, Robert Roldan, Neil Haskell, Kathryn McCormick, etc). Who cares what color their skin is? They are amazing!

    This is why its important to talk race/diversity….—>

    I don't understand how people asking for equal opportunity and inclusion can anger people. As you can see in the other comments, ignorance is still rampant and people don't understand their privilege.

    Hollywood is all about everyone else being racist. Those who hire actors are more prejudice than any other group in the country. Their only concern is promoting gay people and their rights because most of the leadership in Hollywood is gay. They don't care about black people now, much like our President whose primary concern was gay rights and not the economy, which is severely affecting that community with a higher unemployment rate than any other group.

    What, this bitch! The emmys were totally fine and entertaining. And there were several so called 'colored' people in the dance routine. Maybe she should get her eyes checked. Oh, and her fucking overopinioned, stupid mind. Bitch.

    I bet if she was nominated for an Emmy she wouldn't have had a single complaint. Seems like she intentionally made comments to get her name int he headlines since her show is on its last legs. Press seeking for sure.
