2015 Emmy Nomination for Scandal's Khandi Alexander

2015 Emmy Nomination for Scandal's Khandi Alexander

We could not be more excited to share that Scandal’s Khandi Alexander (Maya Pope) is a 2015 Emmy nominee for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series. Congratulations Khandi! Maya Pope, the estranged mother of our beloved gladiator Olivia Pope, is truly one of a kind. She takes command of each scene with bluntness and wisdom that can only come from a brilliant past. She may be a dangerous terrorist, but she's definitely had a deep impact on Olivia. Just watch her in this powerful scene!
