It’s that time of year again- time to gear up for the Primetime Emmy Awards. And with this year’s list of nominees, it’s sure to be an amazing night.
Loved by critics and audiences alike, NBC’s “30 Rock” has a strong showing this year with a total of 17 nominations, including Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Lead Actor (Alec Baldwin) and Outstanding Lead Actress (Tina Fey).
Grey’s Anatomy received ten nominations for the Emmy’s this year, and nothing was more heavily contested than Best Supporting Actress. Three stars from Grey’s (Sandra Oh, Katherine Heigl, and Chandra Wilson) were nominated for the category, and judging their reactions, it truly was a surprise.
In the end, it was the ‘Knocked Up’ star, Katherine Heigl, who stole the honors for her reprisal of the role of Isobel ‘Izzie’ Stevens. Heigl looked absolutely stunning in a white gown as she accepted her Emmy for Best Supporting Actress.
Racking up an extremely impressive 10 Emmy nominations, the hit drama series Grey's Anatomy will head into the start of its new season with some strong momentum. The breakdown for the individual nominations is as follows:
* Sandra Oh - Best Supporting Actress
* Katherine Heigl - Best Supporting Actress
* Chandra Wilson - Best Supporting Actress
* T.R. Knight - Best Supporting Actor
* Kate Burton - Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series
* Elizabeth Reaser - Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series
Most of the stars of the hit medical drama series 'Grey's Anatomy' have agreed new contracts, and as could be assumed... they will not need to pick up a second job to cover the bills.
The Hollywood Reporter states that, under the new deal, Ellen Pompeo (Meredith Grey) will receive almost $200,000 per episode, while her co-stars James T Pickens Jr (Richard Webber) and Chandra Wilson (Miranda Bailey) will receive somewhere in the ballpark of $125,000 per episode.
The buildup to the Oscars continues, with the Screen Actors Guild Awards held Sunday, January 28th. Top movie releases and television shows vied for yet another piece of hardware to throw in the trophy case. Also at stake, another stab at swaying Academy voters' last second ballots.
