Katherine Heigl Wins Best Supporting Actress Emmy!

by 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!

    BETTY DARLING - The truth has already come out. Katherine Heigl had sex with the Emmy accountants (take note of the plural form) that's why she won. How pathetic, right? katherineheiglfan4life - You are delusional and in denial. Go look for help from a shrink or something.

    I'm a big fan of the show since the beginning. Read the pro and con of Katherine winning. Where does everyone think she got the votes to win from? I mean, she beat 4 other ladies in the category?

    You know I really didn't like the turn Izzie Stevens took this season but I think Katherine Heigl acted it perfectly. It was meant to be an annoying, aggrivating turn of character because of all she went through with Denny. And like many others I don't think she was the best choice this year (last year maybe) but I'm glad someone from Grey's won. But I still don't understand the hating on the actress. And more than that I don't understand people being so vehemently angry at someone who did nothing to them personally to the point of acting like middle schools kids again. Why can't we have an intelligent grown up discussion about this instead of name calling and mud throwing?!?! Seriously!

    I am with the majority here. Katherine Heigl bagging the Emmy is one big joke. I totally agree with those who said that her win is such an insult to the other nominees. If I were them, I'd feel really violated and would have filed a complaint or something.

    I LOVE this! I agree with every single word. Sunday, September 16, 2007 â€" a date which will live in infamy - the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by bad taste and acting ability of Katherine Hy-gel. The United States was at peace with the fact that she could not act and, at the solicitation of Academy of Arts, was still in conversation with the various television and movie distributors looking toward the keeping her off television entirely. Indeed, one hour after Hy-gel won, a plane crashed in Thailand and OJ was arrested. While this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue giving out Emmys based upon talent and acting, it contained no threat or hint of realism or acting merit. It will be recorded that the tragedy that was her performance makes it obvious that the this bullshit was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time, the Emmy people has deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope for continued good acting on television. The attack today on the American taste has caused severe damage to American television and cinema forces. Very many American lives have been lost. In addition, American acting talent has been reported torpedoed on a grand scale between Las Angeles and New York City.

    I dont know what the heck everyone is whining about. Yes I think Chandra and Sandra deserved it more then her, but come on! This was an amazing season for Izzie Stephens. Did you not see her go through all the emotions with such amazing acting ability? Maybe you don't like Katherine Heigl. Maybe she is a bit of a diva, but saying that she doesnt have any talent is clearly wrong, just watch the clip they showed for her again.

    It's not her fault that she won. It's the judges. Her own mother does not even think she deserves to win.
    I totally agree with her mother.

    I was actully surprised that she's nominated.
