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

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)

Lexie: [narrating] Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.
Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.
Izzie: That's how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can't breathe, that's how you survive.
Derek: By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won't feel this way. It won't hurt this much.
Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can't control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again.
Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away.
Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five.
Alex: Denial.
Derek: Anger.
Bailey: Bargaining.
Lexie: Depression.
Richard: Acceptance.
