There's at least one star who is vocalizing her disappointed with this year's Emmy Awards!

Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo spoke to the Associated Press with her disappointment with Sunday's show--particularly with the lack of diversity.

"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?"

Scandal, which shares a showrunner with Ellen's Grey's, gained notoriety this Emmys season when its star Kerry Washington was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a drama; had she won, she would've been the first African American woman to do so.

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