Emmys 2014: 'Scandal's' Kerry Washington sees phone activity take off As weird as it may seem, it was unusual for Kerry Washington to wake up to the sound of an active phone. http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/envelope/tv/la-et-st-emmys-2014-kerry-washington-nomination-scandal-reaction-20140710-story.html
All the applause for Ava Duvernay, who directed this episode of Scandal, which made history! It was the first time a Black woman (Ava) directed a prime-time network TV drama created by a Black woman (Shonda Rhimes) and starring a Black woman (Kerry Washington). AND IT WAS PHENOMENAL!!!
