*Many of us watched the Emmys Sunday night in hopes of seeing actress Kerry Washington take home the win for Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her role in “Scandal.”
Unfortunately we were disappointed when Claire Danes’ name was called instead for her role in “Homeland.”
Gladiators around the world announced their disappointment for Kerry’s loss, with her co-star, Columbus Short, taking to Twitter as the unofficial spokesman for every “Scandal” fan.
“Robbed. Robbed I tell you. ROBBED. @kerrywashington is without question the MOST OUTSTANDING. Well see you next year Emmys,” Columbus tweeted before issuing some instructions to “Scandal” fans everywhere. [email protected] you #Gladiators Oct. 3rd lets show them who we are. #GladiatorsWontBeDenied @ScandalABC love you all…I wish I could of ran on stage and pulled a Kanye.#OkImDoneVenting #EmmyRobbery”
The show’s creator Shonda Rhimes wasn’t quite as explosive in her reaction. Instead, she tweeted, “Gonna get some wine and some popcorn and put on my white pajamas and just be fierce all over my living room. #gladiatorsdontcry.”
Kerry herself accepted the loss rather graciously, tweeting, “Great night! Every single woman in our category deserved to win! So happy for Claire ???? And ALL tonight’s winners & nominees! #grateful.”
Many fans took the their Twitter accounts to express their belief that the newly married actress is expecting.
And another set of fans think this could mean a major plot point for season 3 of “Scandal”:
