“It’s Hi-gull”…and a sweet shout out to David and Lynn Angell

Pity the poor Emmy announcer. She mispronounced the surname of “Grey’s Anatomy” star Katherine Heiglchandler Heigl, who joined the achingly handsome Kyle Chandler on stage to present the trophy for supporting actor in a movie/miniseries. First thing Heigl sez as she hits the mike: It’s “Hi-gull.”

Winner in the category added a heap of sweet to Heigl’s sour. Thomas Haden Church (pictured below), a victor for the AMC oater “Broken Trail,” thanked “David and Lynn Angell, who were there at the beginning.” Sweet of him to remember David Angell and his wife. David, of course, was part of the Angell-Casey-Lee triumvirate who created the show, “Wings,” that provided Church’s breakthru role. David and Lynn died in one of the hijacked planes on Sept. 11, but their legacy, clearly, remains strong.

This just in: Katherine Heigl (that’s Hi-gelle) has won in the supporting drama actress category for her role as the mixed up Izzie on “Grey’s Anatomy.”
