When the President of the United States can’t seem to get you out of his head, you must be a diva. We’re talking about Scandal’s Olivia Pope, here. But only the woman that plays her, Kerry Washington, can bring that kind of fierceness to life, in the first leading role for a black woman on television since the 70s. Episode after episode she’s cleaning up Washington’s dirty little secrets while looking fly as heck in those white suits. And, Kerry was hauntingly unforgettable as Jamie Foxx’s tortured slave wife, Broomhilda, in Django Unchained. With performances like that and those in Ray and The Last King of Scotland, Kerry Washington is a diva we won’t soon forget.
