Katherine Heigl Wins Best Supporting Actress Emmy!

at . Comments

Experts' predictions had Sandra Oh taking home the Best Supporting Actress honors, but when the dust settled, the Emmy went to Katherine Heigl!

Katherine, who was not only going up against the formidable Sandra Oh and a third Grey's Anatomy star, Chandra Wilson, but three of the best supporting actresses from all other drama series, was quite taken aback.

Katherine Heigl, who won in her first-ever Emmy nomination, joked that she did not prepare a speech for the occasion because "My own mother told me that I didn't have a shot in hell of winning tonight."

Best Supporting Actress!

As cameras focused on her mother and manager, Nancy, in the crowd, Katherine Heigl laughed and added, "But she's a really big supporter. She does love me."

In closing, a tearful daughter addressed a tearful Nancy Heigl, "This is for you, this is because of you. I wouldn't want to be here without you."

Congratulations to Katherine, and to Sandra and Chandra on their nominations!

sandra won an emmy for the first season which only had 9 episodes. 9 episodes!! there was no crying and panicking. she didn't need the death of a fiance, a ferry boat disaster or a dark past haunting her to bring out the best out of cristina yang. chandra, on the other hand, can boss them around, scare them, get some sense into them and care for them so effectively you actually wish you know someone like her. i hope the emmy's go back to their standards two years ago.


Wicked....not only you suck at spelling, you're also terrible with grammar. Geez, you're like Katherine Heigl's number one fan, you can't even spell her surname correctly. Gawd. Just in case you're not familiar with the expression "kick rocks," it means "fuck off." Go hide under your table after you settle the students throwing rocks.


WICKED -- Enough trying hard with the sarcasm. Seriously, it doesn't suit you. Go stand and near the flagpole in your school quadrangle or something. There might be students throwing rocks to each other, you know.


Kate -- thanks for sharing the article, you're such a doll. That's incredibly true and hilarious and it makes me want to smack her face with a tennis racket!


Sandra Oh should have won, she is the best actor on the show by far.


FROM NYTIMES: Grey's Anatomy actress pens ‘book' Katherine Heigl, whose inexplicable nomination and subsequent win of an Emmy award resulted in the implementation of minimum IQ requirements for all Emmy voters, has written a book. A scant twenty pages, The Cornerstones of Great Acting defines Ms. Heigl's most treasured acting skills: Eye rolling, making faces, and the vacant stare. When a representative from Publisher's Weekly commented, "That's only three. There are usually four cornerstones," Ms. Heigl, using her patented eye roll, replied, "WhatEVER!" She then flounced out of the press conference followed by her entourage which included her mother, her sister and several adolescent girls. The Cornerstones of Great Acting is not available in stores, but may be purchased through Ms. Heigl's official website, www.icarriedseasontwo.com, for $19.99. When questioned about the hefty price for only 20 pages, Ms. Heigl haughtily asked, "Do you have an Emmy? No, I didn't think so."


Congrats to her!
She looks amazing in the pic!
And her hug with TR was soooo sweet! Kisses from Chile =)


Oops sorry, that was completely off topic teehee. People who believe that justice must be served would never get over this shit. Those are the same people who don't regret spending a small fraction of their time of the day to make their voices heard because they know that all these will backfire on Katherine Heigl (hi-jel) soon and ultimately, on Grey's Anatomy.


Oh lookie! Somebody had her post proofread a hundred times to ensure that there'd be no spelling errors this time. Good for ya! Hahahahaha! I mean, that's quite a step for you girl. Teehee!


WOW!! l love it! Now I am told I am KH herself! That is great! I never got such a reaction like this! LOVE IT! Rozanne Chilton. DARN YOU! Ya caught me. I am a bad speller. I admit I was earlier, but I guess you had to remind me, Thank you for putting me in my place. WOW! EVERYONE I HAVE AN ANNOUNCEMENT. I WICKED, I AM A BAD SPELLER! Oh no, the Earth is now rotating in the wrong direction. What will become of mankind? Again, not a high school principal, but hell, I wouldn't mind that, seeing as they probably make more money than I do...OH wait, no they don't because apparently I AM Katherine Heigel. Now I have never called anyone on this board a bitch. So if you all choose to call me one, thats just fine. Hell, I am a bitch, I can live with that. So I guess I'm gonna go kick some rocks around. {never heard of that as an insult....very interesting}. Anyway you all have a wonderful evening, and this self righteous rock kicking bad spelling Katherine Heigel inpersonating Wicked Bitch will sign off, for now. Hey, you can keep the nasty replies coming, because I quite enjoy them. And If I am really Katie Heigel....SUCK IT! I won an Emmy, have a hit movie, drop dead gorgeous, great set of racks, have a handsome fiance, on a hit show have and more movies along the way. What are you folks doing with YOUR life....hmmm?


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)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
