She's playing everyone's favorite President-loving political fixer on Scandal season 3 but Kerry Washington hosted Saturday Night Live and demonstrated that she can wear more than just a White Hat. 

Washington is the 9th Black woman to host the show in its entire 38 year run, and of the 137 actors to grace the stage as cast members, only 4 of them have been African-American.

Throughout the evening, Kerry helped SNL make fun of themselves for their recent diversity issues, chiefly by pointing out that there isn't really much diversity on the show at all.

They jumped right into their self-mockery with the cold open, featuring Kerry Washington as both Michelle Obama and Oprah.

Washington also took to song and dance with a spoof of "What Does The Fox Say?" alongside Jay Pharoah. Check out "What Does My Girl Say?" and two more videos from the night after the jump.

Saturday Night Live is about to get very scandalous, in more ways than one.

NBC has announced that Kerry Washington, who is currently starring as Olivia Pope on Scandal Season 3, will host the November 2nd edition of this sketch series.

Serving as the musical guest on this same installment? The Rap God himself, Eminem, who is under some fire at the moment for lyrics in his latest single that many see as being offensive to gays.

SNL has already aired three episodes this season, with Tina Fey opening as host and being followed by Miley Cyrus and Bruce Willis.

Edward Norton (and Janelle Monáe) are on tap for October 26th, while the following Saturday will mark Washington's first hosting gig and Eminem's sixth turn as SNL performer.

Miley Cyrus should do more hosting and less mocking of the mentally ill.

The 20-year old artist took a break last night from feuding with Sinead O'Connor to take to the Saturday Night Live stage as emcee and musical guess... and she was pretty darn funny.

FIRST, Miley mocked the Apocalyptic reaction to her 2013 VMA performance, appearing opposite Vanessa Bayer as an old version of... Miley Cyrus:

THEN, it was opening monologue time, as Cyrus said she would not be Twerking or apologizing, except to one small sect of individuals: “If I owe anybody an apology, it’s the people who make the bottom half of shirts.”

Miley Cyrus is aghast at the behavior of... Miley Cyrus.

In a series of pretty funny promos alongside Taran Killam, the artist makes fun of her racy VMA performance, agreeing that her clothing was way over-the-top and crying:  "It was too much! Don't forget about the children!"

She also says she sticks her tongue out so often because it's how she smells, while encouraging Killam to check Google for her latest activities.

Miley will be serving as host and musical guest this Saturday night and don't lie: whatever you think of her, you'll be tuning in to see Cyrus does next. Check out the commercials now:

Cyrus will release her new album on October 8, but you need not wait that long to listen to snippets from every song on "Bangerz."

Tina Fey returned to Saturday Night Live last night for its season opener, and to the surprise of no one, stole the show at her old NBC stomping grounds.

"How am I going to demand the best table at subway if I don't have a TV show?" Fey deadpanned of her SNL encore during a classic opening monologue.

In addition to poking fun at the Tina Fey nipple slip from the Emmys, the opening routine also channeled Miley Cyrus Twerking and much more. Watch:

On an episode that featured an Aaron Paul cameo and six new cast members, the star of the show was still Fey, who was a fixture on SNL for nine years.

The comedienne took on the HBO show Girls, joining the core four as Blerta, the girl from Albania with a rubber hand and OCD (Old Cow Disease):

Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul made a cameo on Saturday Night Live last night in a season-opening faux press conference by President Barack Obama.

On the eve of the Breaking Bad finale, and with Affordable Care Act health care exchanges set to open Tuesday, Paul made a heartfelt pitch for Obamacare.

Or Jesse Pinkman did, we should say. Take a look (4:25):

Paul, as his Emmy-winning character, described how a certain friend of his in New Mexico could have benefited from Obama's signature legislation.

Because there was no Obamacare, Jesse's unnamed friend was forced to undergo drastic measures to pay for his treatment and provide for his family:

Cooking massive amounts of meth and murdering people.

As expected, Tina Fey is embracing her Emmy Awards wardrobe malfunction.

Millions watching Sunday's broadcast saw the now-infamous Tina Fey nipple slip, as her blue Narciso Rodriguez dress revealed just a little too much.

You didn't expect her to care, did you? Or to pass up a chance to mock it?

In the SNL promo below, she shows that she knows how to take a joke, and that she's deserving of the Emmys' Best Comedy Writing trophy. Take a look:

It's unclear if we'll actually see Tina Fey topless during her upcoming hosting gig on Saturday Night Live, but the gag certainly played well in the promo.

Miley Cyrus has proven once again: All publicity is good publicity.

The singer - who continues to receive criticism for a possibly racist VMA performance, and who performed over the weekend with Twerking dwarfs in Germany - will host the second episode of Saturday Night Live's upcoming new season.

She will also serve as musical host on the October 5th edition.
