Kerry Washington Reacts After Breaking an Emmy Record!

Kerry Washington wasn’t just nominated for one Emmy at the 2020 Emmy Awards – she’s up for FOUR!

The 43-year-old actress and producer woke up to the news that not only had she been nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie, but is also included in the nominations for Outstanding Variety Special (for Live in Front of a Studio Audience), Outstanding Television Movie (American Son), and Outstanding Limited Series (Little Fires Everywhere).

“To be recognized in this way this morning is such an honor – but to be able to rit with my partner Pilar Savone and our Simpson Street family makes it even more meaningful,” Kerry shared in a statement.

Kerry was also touched to hear about Lynn Shelton‘s directing nomination, who passed away earlier this year.

“The tears came this morning when I heard about Lynn Shelton’s nomination for Little Fires Everywhere,” she wrote. “I’m so incredibly grateful that the Television Academy has chosen to honor Lynn with this very deserved nomination. I know she’s celebrating in the beyond.”
