Anika Noni Rose talks ‘Watsons’ film and praises Kerry Washingon’s ‘Scandal’ role
Sunday, Kerry Washington stands to make history as the first black actress to ever receive an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. Rose discussed how Washington’s role on ABC’s Scandal has opened doors for other black actresses in Hollywood.
“I’m really happy for Kerry and I’m happy for people that can look at her and see, ‘oh yes this is a viable product here. This is something that people want to see and enjoy seeing and is necessary to see because it’s a part of our world. I think she’s representing an America that people don’t necessarily know exists.”
