So last night, Kerry Washington and her little baby bump made it’s way to the SNL stage and she killed it!
Kerry showed off her versatility, taking on the roles of an around the way girl, jealous girlfriend, a Miss Uganda pageant contestant and more.
The show opened with assistance from Kerry in joking on themselves and their latest bit of controversy. The show has been under the microscope lately for its lack of diversity, specifically lacking any black women. The pregnant host starring alongside Jay Pharaoh as PresidentObama quickly switched up her costumes from the First Lady to Oprah Winfrey only to be prompted to leave again and to return as Beyonce.
SNL then jokingly ran a voiceover that said:
“The producers at Saturday Night Live would like to apologize to Kerry Washington for the number of black women she will be asked to play. We make these requests because Ms. Washington is an actress of considerable range and talent – and also because SNL does not currently have a black woman on the cast. Mostly the latter. We agree this is not an ideal situation and look forward to rectifying it in the near future, unless, of course, we fall in love with another white guy first.”
For one of the most talked about skits was Kerry catching her boyfriend texting another girlfriend and then breaking out into song and dance with Jay Pharaoh.
If you ever wondered what rachet Kerry Washington would be like, here you go!
And super funny! The actress takes on another skit to discuss what it would take for Obama to lose supporters:
Then things go awry as Miss Universe contestants take the stage:
Overall the Scandal star did an amazing job! And oh did we mention her hubby Nnamdi Asomugha was also on the scene to support his wifey. The NFL player was spotted walking in the building:
Cute! Check out some of Kerry’s highlight SNL skits above!
