If Heigl wins I will be so pissed. That will show if ya wine like a big baby you can win. I think that Dr Bailey should win. For her scene in the OR when she ask Derrick not to save the serial killer. Cause they needed his organs for her little patient. That scene was heart wrenching. As was the scene when Merridith went to the exacution of the SK. When it was over and she was talking to Derrick her acting was never done so well as it was at that moment. Loved it!!!! As much as I love Callie I don't think that she got enough good story lines to be considered. I so think that Erica Hahn should be in the running for her "Glasses" scene and win. That was one of the best scenes I've ever seen on Grey's. I also think that Dr Bailey should be considered for her scene with Callie talking about the sour dough beard. That was to funny. I have to take back what I said about Callie not getting anything this year. The scene with she and Bailey talking about her going on a date with Erica was sooooo funny. That should have been good for something. Didn't think that Derrick had anything this year that put him in the running. I hated dark and twisted Derrick. Alex's acting sucked this year. I think Owen Hunt should head back to the army and get off my tv screen. LOL!!! I so don't like him. Denny D Grrrr!!!! I thought he did a good job as the patient. But when he was brought back as Izzy's visions. I was so done with him and cringed every time I seen him. So I don't think he should be considered for anything. Didn't see alot of George and am not a hugh fan of TR, but thought that he deserves to be in the running for his scenes in the final. He did a great job. I do really like the Chief and Dr Sloan so I'm hoping they are considered. Loved how the chief told Mer that he was sorry that he never fought for her. There have been alot of great scenes with him in them this year. And what can ya say about Sloan he is easy on the eyes and is so funny. I really like him. I hope he is considered for something. I like Christina too and she should get considered for something for her choking scene. That was way scary. So who is left Lexie? She didn't do anything that is even note worthy this year. The only time I really liked Lexie was when she was dating George. I thought they was very cute togehter. They had a cute little innocent thing going on. I don't think she and Mark match very well.


Here are some more of Grey's Emmy submission episodes. From the Emmy ballots: Writing submissions: What A Difference A Day Makes
Not Good At Saying Sorry (One More Chance) Directing Submissions: Stairway to Heaven
Now or Never
Elevator Love Letter Editing Submissions: What a Difference a Day Makes
Stairway to Heaven
There's No I in Team
Elevator Love Letter I'm not really sure with the writing submissions (I'd place Stairway to Heaven and ELL as first choice or even Brave New World) but Not Good At Saying Sorry was a pretty good episode.


just please give the emmy to the serial killer guy..he was AMAZING!!!
and of course Justin Chambers


Justin definitely deserves one!! He's the actor we heard less about and to me he's the best on the show, especially this season! He brought so much emotion to the storyline with Izzie. I think Katherine, Chandra and Sandra are amazing but I guess with this year's storyline Katherine is most likely to win. Ellen is also amazing but we didn't see enough of her this year and she couldn't demonstrate enough of her talent compared to her fellow residents + Bailey


I think the only people who deserve a nomination this year are: Ellen Pompeo; Katherine Heigl; Justin Chambers; Sandra Oh; Chandra Wilson; Kevin McKidd. I actually think it's funny how people think Sara Ramirez or Chyler Leigh should be nominated...Are you guys high? Yes, Sara Ramirez is a good actress, but this season Callie's storylines were just RIDICULOUS. Sort of entertaining, but so, so silly. And Chyler Leigh...she's endearing, but that's all.


Ellen has showed repeatedly she is a good actress, just look at range of what she had to show in her storylines. I think the odds are it will be a film star actress who wins the Emmy, the voters seem to be stuck/overawed that a film actress would dain to do a tv series! I am disappointed that Patrick didn't submit himself for the best actor, there must be a hot favorite for the Emmy. Have to say I wasn't convinced by Chandra's acting at times, I do like her though. I did find Eric Stoltz very creepy and deserving of some sort of acknowledgment for sending chills down me every time he was on screen


Ellen Pompeo is really the best actress!!She made a great season. She always do. And she really deservs it. The way she acts is just amazing.
Supporting Actress:
Katherine Heigl! She did a brilliant job in this season. But I also think Chandra Wilson, Sandra Oh and Chyler Leigh deserve it...
Supporting Actor: Patrick Dempsey!!! He made a really great season. I also think he made a great job playing dark & twisty Derek. But I also would be happy if Eric Dane wins.
Guest Actress: Kate Walsh! I miss her so much in the show. And I was so happy when she came as a guest actress.
Guest Actor:Jeffrey Dean Morgan. He played the ghost of Denny very well.


.. god i love "stairway to heaven"...ellen and eric stolz were flawless...i really think eric stoltz should be nominated...and chandra wilson...this year should be hers!...her performance was a big part of what made this season a strong drama....and kevin mckidd and justin chambers were also very very good ...


TBH, I don't think Ellen will get the nomination for best lead actress. I think it's too competitive. Even though she did a good job, I think she should have tried for supporting. I don't think she was really a "lead" actress this season. Just MHO. For supporting actress...I think Sara, Chandra, and Sandra are all deserving of a nomination...especially the later two. Guest actress: Faye, Kate, and Melissa all were superb.


I think ellen should def be nominated so should patrick and justin and in actresse (supporting) chandra and izzie and ben schenkman or eric stoltz Guest stars and than Mary mcdonalls or tyne daly (guest stars

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.
