(AP) Ellen Pompeo (pahm-PAY'-oh) wasn't a fan of this year's Emmy Awards show.


The 43-year-old actress says she "was really disappointed" by Sunday's telecast.


"I didn't see any diversity in the Emmys at all. The Emmys felt so dated to me," she said in an interview Monday. "... That dance number was embarrassing. Did you see one person of color in that dance number?"


"Grey's Anatomy" is one of the more diverse shows on television, which Pompeo says is one of her favorite things about the series.


"I'm extremely proud of our very, very diverse cast which represents the world that I walk around in every day," she said.


"Grey's Anatomy" is now in its 10th season on ABC. The new season will premiere Thursday.
