"I'm Winning" is the nineteenth episode of the tenth season of Grey's Anatomy and the 215th produced episode of the series. It is also the 326th produced episode of the Grey's Anatomy franchise. It was broadcast on April 10, 2014.

The Harper Avery nominations are revealed and the staff of Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital are thrilled to find Cristina among the nominees, but Cristina finds herself struggling to fully enjoy her nomination when a family all suffering from cardiomyopathy makes her question her abilities as a surgeon just as the world's attention turns to her. Elsewhere, Meredith find herself throwing Cristina a reception in order to mask her jealousy while Bailey does a less adept job at keeping her jealously in check as she struggles with the notion of one of her former students receiving the accolade as her own project hits a brick wall. Elsewhere, Alex makes a choice about his future at the hospital while Callie and Derek's work mapping emotion forces her to acknowledge what's missing from her life, and her marriage to Arizona. Richard tries to encourage the residents to get involved in the ground breaking projects occurring around the hospital while April and Jackson find themselves struggling to align their approaches to their finances.



"The Harper Avery is one of the highest awards a surgeon can earn. They always make the calls the nominees on the same Friday of the same month at 8 A.M East Coast time. 5 A.M in Seattle. My mother was nominated five times. I've been through this before. If the phone rings everything changes. Suddenly, you're a superstar. If it doesn't, I don't know, my mother was a superstar. She always got the call."
"My mom didn't think she'd win. She thought it was a popularity contest and she wasn't popular. She was a woman and a fellow and her arrogance could rub people the wrong way. She hadn't allowed herself imagine the possibility of winning because she wanted it too much. And when they called my mom's name she was genuinely shocked. It was validation of all her hard work and sacrifice. She came home and told me she didn't win the Harper Avery, she earned it."
