Kerry Washington is finally an Emmy Award winner.

“Thank you for this amazing creative family. It’s such a brilliant team,” Washington gushed, according to GoldDerby.

The star’s honour comes after it was announced earlier this summer that she’d been nominated for four 2020 Emmy Awards.

Washington was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for “Little Fires Everywhere”. With her production company, Simpson Street, she also earned nods for Outstanding Limited Series or Movie for “Little Fires Everywhere” and Outstanding Television Movie for “American Son”.
