The lovely Ellen Pompeo attended the 32nd annual National Italian American Foundation Gala in Washington, D.C. and received a NIAF Special Achievement Award in Entertainment for her portrayal of Dr. Meredith Grey.

She joined director Martin Scorsese at the gala, as well as Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi and Mary Margaret Valenti, the widow of Jack Velenti (president of the Motion Picture Association of America).

Three Cheers for Ellen

Watched the video and Ellen said the chances of Meredith and McDreamy getting married were GOOD and she thought it would happen evidentually! Yeah...maybe thats a hint of things to come! In Patricks interview with Entertainment weekly he commented that he wished that Meredith and Derek would get married too!
Maybe these two are trying to tell us something!!!!!! Lets hope so!

did she cut her hair? It looks like she did. It's probably just waves in her hair that make it look short. Anyhoo, congrats to her. And as always she looks amazing.

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.
