The Brilliant Sandra Oh And Ellen Pompeo

The Grey's Anatomy season finale was all about our beloved 'twisted sisters', Cristina Yang and Meredith Grey, and some brilliant acting from Sandra Oh and Ellen Pompeo. Here is a roundup of some reviews of Sandra's (and co-stars Ellen Pompeo and Chandra Wilson's) performance in the season finale.

  • All in all, it was a very well-done finale, but it got away from the writers just a little at the end. With the shooter seemingly everywhere you didn't want him and everyone trapped with precisely the most dramatic person possible, it got a little ridiculous. But in the end, the acting — including big nights for Chandra Wilson, Sandra Oh and Ellen Pompeo — carried it off. - MSNBC

    • Unfortunately for Langston, he doesn't have Cristina Yang to come to his rescue, as she did on Grey's by operating on Derek. The finale boasted fine work from all of the show's regulars, including from the always wonderful Chandra Wilson and the sometimes unfairly undervalued Ellen Pompeo. But it was a particularly good episode for Sandra Oh, capping what has been a very good season. - USA Today

        • We have one word to sum up last night's season finale of Grey's Anatomy: Emmys. Emmys all around. One for Ellen Pompeo. One for Sandra Oh. One For Chandra Wilson. One for Mandy Moore . The list goes on and on and on. - Perez Hilton

          • Amazing acting all around, from Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey to Sandra Oh (give this woman an Emmy nod) and Chandra Wilson. Uniformly great performances that pulled you in and remained believable. Yes, everyone has been traumatized. Yes, Derek and Alex may have long recoveries. Yes, Meredith lost the baby she only just realized she wanted. And, yes, several characters seem like they'll be permanently changed(*). (*) Again, I can't understate how good Oh was here, or how well-written Cristina was as she finally came into her own. The moment when she told Meredith she was a very good surgeon "for a resident" was such a perfect lowering of all the shields the character has kept up for six seasons, and her refusal to put down her scalpel even as she was nakedly terrified by Clark's gun was a fantastic sequence for Oh. - Zap2It

              • There was no opportunity for suspense, or tears, or anger, or horror, or some good old-fashioned monologuing left unexplored. Huge stakes, huge emotions, great performances from everybody (though I would say Chandra Wilson and Sandra Oh were particularly great... - HitFix

                • The Grey’s Anatomy two-hour season finale took off with a bang Thursday as viewers watched a mad man shoot his way through Seattle Grace Hospital in his vengeful hunt for Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey). An episode that brought out the best in favorites Meredith (Ellen Pompeo), Alex (Justin Chambers), Miranda (Chandra Wilson) and Callie (Sara Ramirez), at one point it had me on my feet shouting “Dr. Yang (Sandra Oh) is the shit!” - Daytime Confidential

                  • Who would live? Who would die? Who would rise to the occasion? Who would crumple in defeat? The acting was uniformly outstanding, with Sandra Oh and Chandra Wilson as particular stand outs. - Fancast

                  • Still, it was a brilliant season finale, well-written by creator Shonda Rimes, beautifully acted (especially by Sandra Oh). - JoyHog
