Shonda Rhimes, Kinda Pissed there Needs to be an Award for the Award She Just Won

I love Shonda Rhime's work and (at least in print) personality. She seems like a great person to have on your team. That's why I loved that not only did she win a Diversity Award from the DGA, she also said this, "“When I heard I was getting a Diversity Award, I was really, truly, profoundly honored ... but I was also a little pissed off.... So was Betsy. So over many, many, many bottles of wine we discussed this.” “We’re a little pissed off because there still needs to be an award. Like, there’s such a lack of people hiring women and minorities that when someone does it on a regular basis, they are given an award.”
