Kerry Washington was nominated four times at the 2020 Emmys —once as an actress and three times as an executive producer. Despite vying for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series for her performance as Mia Warren in Little Fires Everywhere ,her Emmy win was actually for her work as an executive producer. We were surprised that Scandal actress and Kerry Washington never won an Emmy for her game-changing performance as Olivia Pope.
Along with her production company, Simpson Street, Washington scored the Creative Arts Emmys for Outstanding Variety Special (Live) for her work on ABC’s Live in Front of a Studio Audience: All in the Family and Good Times.
Though Washington absolutely deserves an acting Emmy, too, winning a statue as an executive producer is a testament to the amazing work she’s been doing behind the camera, bringing stories to life. Washington was further nominated as an executive producer for both Netflix’s American Son and Hulu’s Little Fires
