Reel Clips | Kerry Washington

This week on Saturday Night Live, Scandal star, Kerry Washington exhibited her range playing several characters on the show. In light of the recent criticism that SNL has come under for their lack of Black female cast-members, Washington appeared in more than 80 percent of the show’s sketches.

For the most part, Washington appeared to be having plenty of fun and had the opportunity to show a different side of her often serious persona. Whether playing the around-the-way assistant to career-day speaker or the frustrated girlfriend of Jay Pharaoh to playing a host of black women celebrities in the opening sketch, Washington’s appearance ensured that both Pharaoh and Keenan Thompson got their heaviest dose of exposure this season.

Check out some clips of some of Washington’s sketches:
