6. Kerry Washington
Why she's No. 6: With her hit ABC series "Scandal" quickly becoming one of the most talked-about shows on the air, Washington's career is hotter than it's ever been. On the big screen she's also been enjoying success, thanks to a supporting role in last year's Quentin Tarantino blockbuster "Django Unchained." And while she doesn't yet boast movie-star credentials, perhaps she can change that with her starring role in Tyler Perry's upcoming family dramedy "Peeples."
What she's doing here: Kerry is nominated for Best Kiss alongside "Django" co-star Jamie Foxx.
