Kerry Washington received major love today from the Harvard community. The ‘Scandal’ beauty was celebrated in Cambridge Thursday as Harvard University’s Hasty Pudding Theatricals’ Woman of the Year honoree.

The nation’s oldest collegiate theatrical organization says it named Washington as Woman of the Year because she’s the first black woman to headline a network TV drama since 1974, according to the Associated Press. Washington set our TV’s ablaze starring as Olivia Pope on the hit show “Scandal,” which debuted in ABC in 2012.

The 38-year old actress has earned Golden Globe, Emmy and Screen Actors Guild nominations for the role.

Our beloved Comedian Amy Poehler won the prestigious Hasty Pudding last year. Others who have been honored include Meryl Streep, Katharine Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor.
