Shonda Rhimes Is 'A Little Pissed Off' By Her DGA Diversity Award

Grey's Anatomy and Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes managed to score the Diversity trophy at this year's Directors Guild of America Awards and school her peers on the importance of cultural inclusion.

On Saturday, she and production partner Betsy Beers took the stage to accept their honor, but not without the 44-year-old showrunner expressing her slight disappointment in being given the award. During her speech, Rhimes stated:

"When I heard I was getting an award I was really, truly, profoundly honored. I began to get calls from Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, etc., and I was asked to comment on the award. Asked how good I felt about the award. Asked if it made me feel like I was doing the right thing. Asked if it had been a struggle making diversity happen on my cast and crews. While I'm still really and truly profoundly honored to receive this award, but I was also a little pissed off. So was Betsy. So over many, many, many bottles of wine we discussed this. Betsy and I are being applauded and given an award for something that we should all be doing. There shouldn't need to be an award!"

Rhimes went on to thank the DGA for their efforts but said "diversity is not an effort or an initiative," and encouraged the hiring of people of all backgrounds.

And just like that, Rhimes and Beers walked off stage to a standing ovation.
