Kerry Washington almost made history last night. 

Had she won best actress in a drama for her scene-stealing depiction of Olivia Pope on Scandal, she would’ve been the first African American to nab the title.

Unfortunately, Kerry lost to Claire Danes, who took home her second Emmy for her role on Homeland (her third Emmy total).

While Kerry seemed totally supportive of Claire, and embodied “it’s an honor just to be nominated” her famous friends and fans rallied around the 36-year-old beauty.

See what stars—from her Scandal costars to fans—had to say to Kerry on what could’ve been her biggest night.
