Grey's Anatomy is the TV Critics' Choice

at . Comments

Grey's Anatomy took home the prize for Program of the Year at the 22nd annual Television Critics Association Awards, the Hollywood Gossip reports.

Dr. Preston Burke
The ceremony was held last night at the Ritz-Carlton Huntington Hotel in Pasadena, Calif., as part of the group's annual summer press tour. Hopefully, this bodes well for Dr. Burke and company at the upcoming Emmy Awards. After a terrific second season, Grey's Anatomy is up for 11 honors at the gala.

Other big winners named by the TCA included The Office, which won for comedy series and for star Steve Carell, and ABC's Lost, which picked up its second consecutive TCA win for drama series despite being largely excluded from the upcoming Emmys. Hugh Laurie of Fox's House was in the same boat, snubbed this year by Emmy nominators but winning his second consecutive individual drama achievement award from the TCA. NBC's My Name Is Earl was voted new program of the year by the group.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

[narrating] "At the end of the day, when it comes down to it, all we really want is to be close to somebody. So this thing where we all keep our distance and pretend not to care about each other, it's usually a load of bull. So we pick and choose who we want to remain close to, and once we've chosen those people, we tend to stick close by. No matter how much we hurt them. The people that are still with you at the end of the day, those are the ones worth keeping. And sure, sometimes close can be too close. But sometimes, that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need."

MEREDITH

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)
