"Scandal" castmates Jeff Perry, Katie Lowes, Bellamy Young and Tony Goldwyn posed together.  On a SCANDAL sidenote--We no longer trust Cyrus, want Quinn to get kidnapped again if at all possible, have learned a new gangsta "induce labor to keep a man" move form the First Lady, and learned just how much a man hopelessly in love will (stupidly) give up for the woman of his dreams.

BONUS:

Kerry Washington, who stars in two of Hollywood's most talked about sensations, "Scandal" and Django Unchained, was presented the President's Award at the 44th Annual NAACP Image Awards last night by the President and CEO of the NAACP Benjamin Todd Jealous and legendary screen star Diahann Carroll. Kerry was presented the award in honor of her political activism and humanitarian work. 

During her speech, Kerry drew comparisons between the "stories" of her most famous characters, Olivia Pope and Broomhilda, while touting the importance of inclusivity and human rights.  She ended by saying she stands on the shoulders of artists and activists like Harry Belafonte (whom was also honored during the show) who blazed the trail before her.

I believe Gloria Reuben was

I believe Gloria Reuben was actually in Lincoln, not Flight. Everyone looks lovely. Great show except for Steve Harvey, Loretta Devine's dress and Jamie Foxx pretending that he felt bad for being a celebrity that doesn't use his 'celebrity' for good like Belafonte, Poitier and many of old Black Hollywood. Don't worry, Mr. Foxx...you're not the only one.

Halle, what can we say she

Halle, what can we say she always looks AMAZING! Loretta Devine WHY? Kerry's make-up & hair is very simple yet ELEGANT not feeling the out-fit though. Tatyana AGAIN do she get RESIDUAL CHECKS from the "FRESH PRINCE" because the ASIAN SATIN CIRCA 1990's inspired flashback dress ain't doing it for me! Don Cheadle is doing better w/ his common law love's wardrobe but I'm gonna need him to give her a BIGGER BUDGET to come completely up to part! Angell C & Vanessa W both look nice, Necie Nash, No comment, Tiny needs to come up w/ a new style for the EASTER EGGS GIRLS, Chyna, Amandla and KeKe all look nice, like young girls should look. Garcelle and Gloria Rubens look decent for older chicks, Shondra Rhimes is making too much money to be going around looking like this! Wendy R look like a powder faced BOBBLE HEAD! Chandra Wilson 2 words Jenny Craig.

Love Keke's hair because that Blond lowclass weave she was wearing before was so NOT for her. Kerry's lips were super dry and chapped looking on the television screen And that shade of lipstick made it look worse!...Loved the colors of her dress tho....Jamie's daughter is looking like a serious Bobblehead and Garcelle looks nice.
