Kerry Washington is one of the most loved actresses on network television thanks to her iconic role as Olivia Pope on Scandal.
Though we didn't need any convincing, Harvard seems to have finally gotten aboard the Washing-train, because they just awarded the Emmy-nominated actress Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year!
The 38-year-old ABC star spent her Thursday in Cambridge where she took place in the annual parade, roast, and hitting someone with a pie in effigy!

We're not sure how traditional that last one is… and by "someone" we mean an actor dressed up as Donald Trump! LOLz!!!
Kerry joins an impressive list of past winners — Amy Poehler, Anne Hathaway, Scarlett Johansson, and Sandra Bullock are just a few of the other women who've had their own roasts on the Boston stage in the past.
Never one to pass up an opportunity to educate, Mizz Washington made sure to take a serious moment to teach the Harvard students about the importance of diversity in all things we do.
You go, girl!
