ELLEN POMPEO

Nomination: Best dramatic TV actress for Grey's Anatomy
Despite the success of her ABC drama, the Boston-area native says that her long hours on the show helps her relate to her character, Dr. Meredith Grey. "I get a lot less sleep, but it helps, I think, it helps us feel like interns because we really are exhausted," Pompeo told ABC News.
Next Up: No scrubs allowed: Pompeo, who got engaged on her 37th birthday in November to record producer Chris Ivery, has a wedding to plan.

PATRICK DEMPSEY

Nomination: Best dramatic TV actor for Grey's Anatomy
The former '80s teen star spent much of the last decade doing TV guest spots before taking up permanent residency on the hit hospital drama. Now making hearts swoon as Dr. Derek "McDreamy" Shepherd, the two-time nominee told People about his sex-symbol status: "This is so funny. I'm a hunky guy now. How did that happen?"
Next Up: Dempsey returns to the big screen opposite Hilary Swank in the drama Freedom Writers, out in January.

I recently read somewhere that ROB LOWE was originally thought for the part as MCDreamy...what a MCNIGHTMARE...MCseriously! Anyways.. I owe Grey's Anatomy for a lot of things...Mostly thank you for getting me through the past month, I have been going through a horrible breakup for a while now... For Christmas I got Season 1 and 2, what did I do? Thats right in 1 week I got through both seasons, knocking out at least a disc a night. Then after I balled my eyes out watching episode 26 & 27 I started over again with season 1...I seriously couldn't get enough. Then when I went to work that monday I caught up with season 3 online...so TRUST me i was extremely ready for Jan 11 episode. As a result I got through my break up with sanity...So thank you. Now I am the proud owner of a "SERIOUSLY" bumper sticker (which I have on display proudly on my Jeep) and a TEAM MEREDITH T-Shirt. This is what a lil show can do for someone who feels complelty isolated and adrift. thank you for the logic.

I am happy for both of them and Katie also. I so hope they do better than they did at the Emmy's. I personally think they got ripped there.

Katherine wasn't there cause she's not nominated for best actor or actress, all the profiles were for Best actor/actress not supporting!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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.

Meredith

Callie: Did anyone ever think you two were a couple?
Meredith: No, because we screw boys like whores on tequila.
Cristina: Then we either try to marry them or drown ourselves.
Callie: Huh.
