Its official, Kerry Washington is now an Emmy winner.

The American actress won her first trophy for her work as an executive producer on Tuesday, Sept. 15, during the 2020 Creative Arts Emmys, ahead of the virtual primetime ceremony on Sunday night.

Washington was recognized for her behind-the-scenes role as an executive producer for ABC’s Live In Front Of A Studio Audience: “All In The Family” And “Good Times.” The show won the award for Outstanding Variety Special (Live), beating out the 73rd Annual Tony Awards and the Super Bowl halftime show featuring Jennifer Lopez and Shakira.

“Thank you for this amazing creative family. It’s such a brilliant team,” Washington said during the virtual ceremony on Tuesday alongside co-producers Justin Theroux, James Burrows and the legendary Norman Lear.

“OMG,” she later wrote on Instagram Stories before giving a shout-out to her own production company, which she launched in 2016 as part of a deal with ABC. “So proud of @simpsonstreet and this incredible cast and crew.”
