Never in her 20-plus year career has Kerry Washington’s star shone brighter. She’s been featured in over 40 films and is currently riding high on the success of her smash TV series Scandal, but had it been up to a couple of typecasting Hollywood execs, Kerry would’ve been shuckin’ and jivin’ her way to relevance.

Black Hollywood will come together this weekend to celebrate some of its brightest starts. The first American Black Film Festival is gearing up to debut in Los Angeles Sunday (Feb. 21), with host Mike Epps.

If you had your eyeballs locked in last night’s Emmy Awards, chances are you caught the newest Apple Music commercial starring some serious Black Girls Rock star power in Mary J. Blige, Kerry Washington & Taraji P. Henson.

Somebody big has to die on Scandal, who should it be? Our pick is Quinn, but it’s not looking like that wish is going to be fulfilled.

Guess what? President Fitz still loves his wife, even though he probably won’t stop cheating on her.
