The "Scandal" cast loves its fans (a.k.a. Gladiators) and now, Kerry Washington and co. know just how much their fans love them.
In TV Guide Magazine's annual Fan Favorites Awards, "Scandal" won big: Washington was named Favorite Actress and the show earned the coveted Favorite Drama honor.
The magazine's LA Bureau Chief Michael Schneider stopped by the "Scandal" set to surprise Washington and her fellow cast members Darby Stanchfield, Katie Lowes, Guillermo Diaz, Jeff Perry, Joshua Malina, Tony Goldwyn and Bellamy Young with their awards, and surprised they were. The "Scandal" cast erupted in cheers and applause ... and TV Guide Magazine caught it all on tape (above).
"We wouldn't have a show if it weren't for our fans," Washington said. "We want to promise everyone who's watching that although there are a lot of things that we can fix, we did not rig this election."
