Kerry Washington had loads of fun accepting her Pudding Pot Woman of the Year award at the Hasty Pudding Theatricals yesterday. After clowning around (throwing pie and wine in the face of a Donald Trump look-a-like), she got serious and dished on the Oscars controversy. Find out all she said inside….
EMMY nominated actress Kerry Washington had one of the best times accepting an award yesterday. The “Scandal” star trekked it to Harvard University to accept the 2016 Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year Award at the 2016 Hasty Pudding Theatricals, the university's prominent theater troupe, in Boston, Massachusetts.
The 38-year-old star, who celebrates a birthday on Sunday, received a grand welcome as she was paraded down Massachusetts Avenue surrounded by Hasty Pudding men dressed in drag.
Once inside Farkas Hall....
The YBF actress participated in a roasting with the Harvard students for their annual spectacular production. She kept it cute in an all black ensemble. Styled by Erin Walsh, Kerry rocked a lace Self Portrait top, a leather skirt by Sea New York, Isabel Marant booties, and Jennifer Meyer jewels.
During a segment in the production, Kerry brought the laughs as she got the chance to throw a pie and wine in the face of a Donald Trump look-a-like. Hilar! Check it:
The fun continued as Kerry helped spread Neutrogena (whom she is a brand ambassador for) cream all over a student's chest, hurled popcorn and popped ballons:
Do what you do, but watch my shoes. Ha!
On a more serious note, Kerry joined in on the Oscars lack of diversity conversation and gave her opinion. And now, she will not be boycotting this year's ceremony. When asked if she would be skipping out on the Oscars, she said, "I don't think so, no."
Kerry then said she’s glad the diversity conversation is happening because everyone’s voice should be heard. "I'm really excited that the conversation is happening," said Kerry. “It needs to happen, and the Oscars are a symptom of a larger issue. We need more voices at the table. We need our art to reflect all of us."
In other Kerry news, the "Scandal" star and her former NFL baller husband Nnamdi Asomugha found someone to cop their Hollywood Hills home after it being on the market for two years. And they nabbed a come up. The couple purchased the home for $1.8 million in May 2014, shortly after they welcomed their baby girl Isabelle. The house was sold for a million dollar more at $2.6 million. Nice!
