Shonda Rhimes keeps it bright in purple while attending a photo call for her television production company ShondaLand held during MIPCOM 2016 on Tuesday (October 18) in Cannes, France.
Shonda, who is being honored as Personality of the Year, spoke about her journey to the top of her profession and about how broadcasting standards and practices had changed over the years.
“Before I started working in television, the standards were very loose and then got tighter again. In the ‘NYPD Blue’ era, it was very loose and then got tighter again. And then now, things have reached a nice place where it feels like it’s realistic. A lot of it is how America has changed,” Shonda expressed (via Variety). “The standards have changed to match the American people. The same way gay marriage is now legal in every state in the nation, you can now show gay couple kissing and it’s not a big deal.”
