Kerry Washington: 'I'm so blessed'

Jul 18 2013, 9:18pm CDT | by

Kerry Washington says she is "blessed in all areas of my life".

The 'Scandal' actress recently tied the knot with NFL star Nnamdi Asomugha, 32, in a secret ceremony and was just nominated for an Emmy for her role in the ABC drama and Kerry, 36, has never been happier.

She told People: "I don't talk about my personal life in the press, but I will say I'm really happy. I'm blessed in all areas of my life.

"I'm the luckiest broad in showbiz. I just feel really blessed and humbled and grateful for this nomination."

Speaking about the Emmy's ceremony which will take place on September 22 in Los Angeles, she said: "I have not decided who will be my date. That was my parents question this morning! We'll see."

Kerry recently opened up about her desire to live a normal life and revealed she was always reluctant to be an actress because she didn't want to be famous.

She said: "I'm the daughter of a professor, so ... well, I think acting's not a real job. I come from this sort of academic, working middle-class family where you make something respectable of your life ... I always loved acting, but I think for a long time, in my brain, the desire to be an actor was equivalent to the desire to be famous. I did not want to be famous. I did not want to be that girl. I thought that if you wanted to be an actress, you had to want to be on the front cover of magazines, otherwise you shouldn't do it.

"I'm lucky I come from a really grounded family and I have the three best friends from high school who have made it their job to remain unimpressed by everything I do. If I started being super-diva Kerry, they would be like, 'What is that?' "

Emmys Well Played, Natalie Dormer in J Mendel

Aug 27 2014 1:30pm CDT | Source: Go Fug Yourself

 I was not crazy about Kate Mara’s J Mendel, but this one is fab: I might just be partial to orange — although I thought Kerry Washington’s orange frock left something to be desired — and I know that it’s really easy to feel like orange and black is too Halloween-y, but this just see ...

Emmy Awards 2014: Safe Choices In A Time Of Groundbreaking TV

Aug 26 2014 5:56pm CDT | Source: WNYC Music

For TV critics, last night's Emmy awards show was a bit like seeing an old flame promise to treat you better, only to slide right back into the same old disappointing behavior. After nominating a slate of performers and shows that were among the most groundbreaking, diverse and different seen on television, voters in the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences handed out the actual awards to the same old winners. That meant ...

Kerry Washington Photobombs Modern Family Cast, Remains Awesome

Aug 26 2014 9:53am CDT | Source: The Hollywood Gossip

Modern Family may have been a big winner at the 2014 Emmy Awards last night. But Kerry Washington came out on top of the photobombing game. The actress, currently filming Scandal Season 4, jumped into the background of a Modern Family cast picture during the ceremony, smiling broadly for the camera and making us love her even more than we already do. If that's even possible. This may not quite top the iconic Ellen DeGeneres-led selfie from ...
