Beautiful ladies Kerry Washington, Taraji P. Henson, Viola Davis, Queen Latifah and Uzo Aduba brought the fabness for a taping of “Variety Studio: Actors on Actors” Emmy Edition. Peep the brown beauties’ flicks inside…
Yesterday, a few of our fave YBF ladies were front-and-center for a taping of “Variety Studio: Actors on Actors” Emmy Edition (presented by Autograph Collection Hotels) in L.A. And let’s just say the ladies were on their A-game serving class and sass for the taping.
For the upcoming eighth installment, “Variety Studio: Actors on Actors” will feature conversations between television stars who are contending for Emmy Awards. And, of course, our girl Kerry Washington is in the running for her role as Olivia Pope in the hit ABC series “Scandal.”
For her look, the Emmy-nominated actress played with patterns, rocking a polka dot and floral Giambattista Valli dress, Bionda Castana “Daphne Bis” pumps, Lauren Harper earrings, Amrapali ring, and a Movado watch. Gorge. Kerry has been nominated for the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series category for a Primetime Emmy in 2013 & 2014.
“Empire” breakout star Taraji P. Henson lit up the carpet in a bright yellow dress with her hair pulled up into a bun. Ms. Henson will definitely be in the running for an Emmy this year for the fan favorite role of Cookie Lyon in the FOX hip hopera series. Taraji was nominated for a Primetime Emmy in 2011 for her role as Tiffany Rubin in “Taken from Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story.”
Viola Davis, star of ABC series “How To Get Away With Murder,” will be contending for an Emmy this year for her role as Annalise Keating in the crime drama series. If she’s nominated, this will be her first Emmy nod. That scene on “HTGAWM” when she takes off her wig, make-up and eye-lashes is definitely Emmy worthy.
“Orange is the New Black” star and Creative Arts Emmy winner Uzo Aduba looked amazing in a black and blue dress on the carpet. She won an Emmy in the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series category for her role as Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren in the Netflix series.
And Emmy-nominated actress Queen Latifah (who’s starring as legendary blues singer Bessie Smith in an upcoming telefim) was on hand to interview Taraji.
Taraji took a moment to serve up some fierceness and funny faces for the cameras.
Taraji caught up with “The Mindy Project” star Mindy Kaling for a photo-op.
And she snapped selfies with television host Conan O’Brien before her sit down.
Queen Latifah had the honor of interviewing Taraji to chat about the art of acting and her role as Cookie Lyon on “Empire.”
And they ended their session with a hug.
Kerry Washington toted her dog Josie around as she chopped it up with “Jane The Virgin star” Gina Rodriguez.
Then “The Edit” cover girl sat down with late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel for the Variety series.
Looks like she enjoyed her chat with Jimmy.
Viola Davis was interviewed by upcoming “Grace and Frankie” star Jane Fonda.
Uzo Aduba snapped a few pics before sitting down with Gina Rodriguez for her one-on-one interview.
And, of course, they ended their chat with an “us-ie.” Fab times!
“Variety Studio: Actors on Actors” Emmy Edition will premiere June 14th at 7 pm on PBS SoCal. Following the premiere, the show will air across all PBS stations across the nation starting in July.
