“I thought it was lovely to see Grey's Anatomy up there represented and being honored for being the longest-running medical TV show in American TV history, which is crazy to me,” McKidd said. “It's wild. I mean, it's like, I don't know how that happens. I mean, we're all still pinching ourselves. Every day we go to work and go, ‘What? It's still going?’“

The Scottish star recalled never thinking the ABC medical drama would run for as long as it has when he first began on the series.

“When I started on the show in season 5, because I've been on it now 15 years, people then were going, ‘I think we've got one more season. What do you think?’” McKidd recalled. “Sitting around talking about how long you think you've got. Most actors, if you get on a show for five years, you're lucky.”

He credited Grey’s longevity to “the quality of the writing” and “the quality of the stories that we're telling."

“It's a blessing that the fans have stuck with it like they have,” McKidd said, “and we don't take that lightly.”

Last year, ABC picked up Grey’s Anatomy for a 20th season, which will see Pompeo, 54, reprise her role as Meredith Grey after leaving the show in season 19.
