Fans of Grey’s Anatomy were spoilt at Monday night’s awards — which were held at Los Angeles’s Peacock Theater.

While presenting the award, Pompeo took the opportunity to reflect on the hugely successful hospital drama that made her into a household name.

"When the first episode of Grey's Anatomy aired in March 2005, I'm not sure Shonda Rhimes knew that she had created a show that will have a lasting influence on television and create lifelong friendships," she said.

Chambers — who played Dr. Alex Karev — continued, noting how the show and its "400 episodes and counting," have become a "tribute to everyone who is now part of our family."

Heigel then thanked the show’s incredibly loyal fan base, calling them, "one thing that had remained a constant.”

Wilson, who remains on the series as Dr. Bailey, went on to recount some of the most memorable moments from the show. "You stayed with us through plane crashes, super storms, earthquakes and a global pandemic," he said. "And as we start our 20th season, we are officially the longest running primetime medical drama in TV history."

After 19 seasons, Pompeo officially stepped back as series lead of the ABC drama. The actress, who remains an executive producer, will still provide voice-overs as Grey's continues to move forward.

At the time, Rhimes, 54, paid tribute to her longtime collaborator via Instagram, posting, “What a journey these 19 seasons have been! Wouldn't trade them (or you) for the world. Beyond excited for your next chapter. See you later, Dr. Grey.”
