The annual ceremony took place in Los Angeles again. But this year Katherine Heigl was not only a presenter she also won the award for outstanding supporting actress in a drama series for her work on “Grey’s Anatomy” at the 59th Primetime Emmy Awards.
“The award went to Katherine Heigl, who plays Dr. Izzie Stevens on ABC medical drama Grey’s Anatomy. Heigl, who won for her first-ever Emmy nomination, joked that she did not prepare a speech because “(her) own mother told me that I didn’t have a shot in hell of winning tonight.”
Heigl then laughed and added, “She’s a really big supporter. She does love me.” In closing, eliminating any doubt as to her true feelings, she addressed her mother, who was in the audience, and said, “This is for you, this is because of you. I wouldn’t want to be here without you.’”
