We still may need to wait far too many weeks until the return of Scandal Season 3, but at least fans have a reason to come together and celebrate today:

Kerry Washington turns 36 years old!

The star has risen to the top of the television game, having earned an Emmy nomination for her role as Olivia Pope, along with the general respect of her peers and every viewer who tunes in to ABC at 10/9c on Thursday nights.

So go watch Scandal online in order to relive Washington's best moments and then toggle through the following photo montage in her honor now:
