Kerry Washington Wins Her First Emmy Award ― And It's Not For Acting

Kerry Washington is certainly no stranger to the Emmy ballot. The actress and Bronx native earned acting nominations for her portrayal of Olivia Pope on the ABC political drama Scandal and Anita Hall in the HBO film Confirmation. Now, after eight nominations, Washington can finally call herself an Emmy winner.

On the second night of the 2020 Creative Arts Emmy Awards, ABC’s Live in Front of a Studio Audience: All in the Family and Good Times won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Variety Special.  As a co-executive producer on both revivals of the classic sitcoms, Washington was one of the recipients of the awards.

She took to her Instagram story, writing, "OMG. So proud of @simpsonstreet and this incredible cast and crew."

There is still a chance that Washington could pick up an acting Emmy this weekend though. She is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress In A Limited Drama Series for her performance as Mia Warren in the Hulu drama Little Fires Everywhere. She also had an additional two nominations as a producer.
