Thanks to an outstanding performance in Django: Unchained and her breakout role as Olivia Pope in the hit TV show Scandal, Kerry Washington rose to A-list status this year. She nabbed a slew of magazine covers and was named as People's best-dressed woman of the year, all while making history as the first African American woman to headline a network TV show since 1974. In addition to earning an Emmy nomination for her barrier-breaking role, Kerry made strides in her private life as well. The actress secretly married NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha in June, and it was recently announced that the two are expecting their first child together.
