Kerry Washington Is "Luckiest Broad In Showbiz" After Emmy Nomination and Marriage

It's been a great year for Kerry Washington: the last twelve months have seen the actress star in gritty slavery western Django Unchained alongside Jamie Foxx, take on a lighter role as daughter Grace in romantic comedy The Peeples, and most importantly has seen her ABC political TV drama Scandal take off.

The cerebral TV drama focusses on Washington as 'fixer' Olivia Pope - an expert in crisis management - who identifies problems of the powerful and even the president and makes them go away before anyone else knows they exist; always following Pope's strong gut instinct. After discovering she was in line to scoop a 'best actress' Emmy, Washington told The Daily Mail "I'm the luckiest broad in showbiz. I just feel really blessed and humbled and grateful for this nomination," adding "I'm going to celebrate with my Scandal family after we have our table read today."

The 36 year-old actress married San Francisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha last month in Idaho, yet has not confirmed whether she'll ask her 32 year-old husband or her parents to accompany her to the prestigious awards ceremony.

The couple exchanged vows in a secret ceremony in Blaine County after reportedly having dated for a year. Even though Nnamdi is Washington's first husband, she was previously engaged to actor David Moscow from 2004 to 2007. Speaking about her recent marriage and nomination double whammy of joy, Washington glowed "I will say I'm really happy. I'm blessed in all areas of my life."
