Bellamy Young, Columbus Short, and Katie Lowes pick… Kerry Washington
”It’s hard to think of an Entertainer of the Year that isn’t named Kerry or Washington. She has done everything — comedy, drama, fashion, politics. There isn’t an area that she hasn’t put an incredible stamp on with grace and poise. She’s really moved the ball on so many points this year. So, I know it’s pushing one for the home team, but I think it would be hard for anyone to argue against Kerry Washington for that title. Kerry’s just…she can be president, and Miss Universe and Nobel laureate. She’s my vote.” —Bellamy Young
”She’s the hardest working woman in show business. She has done so many things this year. She has made such huge accomplishments and is embarking on an even bigger accomplishment in her personal life.” —Columbus Short
”I have to say Kerry Washington. I know it’s a little bit of a bias cheat just because she’s the No. 1 on the show that I am on, but I just think she’s Entertainer of the Year on every level — and not just because I get to work with her every day on a personal level — but I truly feel that if I was a fan watching the show and watching everything she’s done this year between Django Unchained and Scandal, she’s just really changing the landscape. And every interview she gives, I just think she’s one of the most inspiring, brilliant people of our time.” —Katie Lowes
