The 2014 Golden Globe nominations are in, and Kerry Washington came up big. The "Scandal" star, who plays Washington, D.C. fixer Olivia Pope, was nominated for Best Actress in a TV Drama Series. This is Washington's first first Golden Globe nomination.
Shonda Rhimes' "Scandal" has never been nominated for a Golden Globe, but lead actress Kerry Washington was nominated for a Primetime Emmy in 2013. Her co-star Dan Bucatinsky won an Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series last year for his role as James, Cyrus Beene's husband.
Tune into the 2014 Golden Globes on Jan. 12, 2014.
"Scandal" airs Thursdays, 10 p.m. EST on ABC.
