  • Why did Jesse win an Award? He’s a terrible actor and doesn’t fit into the show at all.

    • Well Shonda & Co. seems to think he fits into the show as they cast him and everyone else. And he won an award highlighting the fact that he’s a good young actor. What you gonna do, haters gonna hate.

      • But what has he REALLY done on the show to prove he’s a good actor? He’s had very few truly dramatic scenes. The majority of his role is “be the pretty doctor” “be shirtless” “flirt with girls” he’s hardly acting. There are far more young actors on TV that have given truly outstanding performances that deserved this more.

      • Not agreeing blindly to every decision Shonda makes is not being a ~hater.

    • He rocks. He is awesome on the show. They need to get rid of April and Arizona, oh Callie can go away, too.

    • I know, right? He may have a pretty face but he’s far from being good enough to win any kind of award.

  • The winners for this thing were all over the place. A supporting actor won TV Actor of the year? Atleast Aimee Teegarden (TV Actress of the Year) has a lead role on her show. There are plenty of much more talented young actors with much more responsibility on their shows that should have won.

  • Love Ellen
    she is amazing
    When will she win her long overdue award for her amazing work on Greys all those seasons?

    You gotta lobby for her Ausiello. She deserves it.

  • There are millions of pretty people on screens big and small, and shopping malls, etc. Being pretty is not unique in Hollywood. It requires somethings more: a response. And Jesse has had a huge affect on fans, period. Hate it or love it. These things are so subjective and hard to measure, but people respond to him, they believe him and he seems like a truly decent guy. I for one am interested in seeing what happens next and would pay to see him in movies. Everytime! Waaay worse have gotten waaaaay more adulation and waaaaaay more chances.
