Just a quick note to inform fans of Ellen Pompeo that the Grey's Anatomy star won the International Press Academy Golden Satellite Award for best actress in a drama series in Los Angeles last night! Go Ellen! See the list of winners here.

The Best Actress

Ellen Pompeo was honored for her work on Grey's Anatomy.

While other Grey's Anatomy cast members may dominate headlines, it's nice to see Ellen Pompeo recognized for her continuous great work as Meredith Grey. We're enormous fans of this Boston-bred actress on a personal level, as well.

It's certainly been an eventful year for the star. Pompeo celebrated her 38th birthday last month by getting married privately to longtime boyfriend / fiance Chris Ivery.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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.

Meredith

[narrating] "At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that's how we're made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here's what I know. If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and take a chance, the view from the other side... is spectacular."
