“This moment right here, me standing up here all brown with my boobs and my Thursday night of network television full of women of color, competitive women, strong women, women who own their bodies and whose lives revolve around their work instead of their men, women who are big dogs, that could only be happening right now,” Shonda shared.

She added, “Look around this room. It’s filled with women of all colors in Hollywood who are executives and heads of studios and VPs and show creators and directors. There are a lot of women in Hollywood in this room who have the game-changing ability to say yes or no to something. 15 years ago, that would not have been as true.” Watch the video of her entire speech below!

Shonda Rhimes Calls the 'NYT' Article a Good Reminder of 'Casual Racial Bias & Odd Misogyny'

Shonda Rhimes is officially dubbed “TV’s Savior” on the gorgeous new cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the 44-year-old screenwriter/director/producer – who happens to run three hit shows in Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and How to Get Away With Murder – had to share with the mag:

On the New York Times article: “Some really amazing articles were written that had the conversation that I’ve been trying to have for a very long time, which, coming from me, makes me sound like I’m just, ‘Rrrraw!’…In this world in which we all feel we’re so full of gender equality and we’re a postracial [society] and Obama is president, it’s a very good reminder to see the casual racial bias and odd misogyny from a woman written in a paper that we all think of as being so liberal.”

On Scandal: “There are no [Katherine] Heigls in this situation. I don’t put up with bullshit or nasty people. I don’t have time for it.”

On reaching out to other networks: “It wasn’t really about money, though don’t get me wrong, it’s very important in a world in which women are paid 77 cents on the dollar to be paid in a way that felt correct. I wanted more control. I wanted the autonomy. And I wanted to feel like if I was making shows,
 I could sell them anywhere. I’m in a lovely posi- tion that whenever we pitch something, ABC buys it, which is great, but I also wanted the abil- ity to say, ‘This is not for you.’”

Shonda Rhimes Shuts Down the 'New York Times' Critic Who Called Her an 'Angry Black Woman'

Shonda Rhimes is shooting down the New York Times critic who called her an “angry black woman.”

“Apparently we can be “angry black women” together, because I didn’t know I was one either! @petenowa #LearnSomethingNewEveryday” Shonda wrote on her Twitter account about the NYT review of How to Get Away with Murder – she did not create the show, Pete Nowalk did. “Final thing: (then I am gonna do some yoga): how come I am not “an angry black woman” the many times Meredith (or Addison!) rants? @nytimes”

“Wait. I’m” angry” AND a ROMANCE WRITER?!! I’m going to need to put down the internet and go dance this one out. Because ish is getting real,” Shonda continued on her rant.

The New York Times also implied in their review that Viola Davis, the show’s star, as “less classically beautiful.”
