Surprisingly, Julie Louis- Dreyfus and Kerry Washington have a lot in common with each other. For starters, both women have been nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in this year’s Emmy Awards for their roles in Veep and Scandal. While both are in vastly different shows in completely different genres, they both just so happen to to deal with the political arena. Washington’s character Olivia Pope was the former White House Communications Director who now runs her own crisis management firm in D.C. The show follows Washington’s character as she tries to balance her stressful job protecting the Capital’s elite with a her personal life which has been burdened by a huge secret. Dreyfus in Veep plays the Vice President of the United States trying, in a sense, to overcome being in the shadows of the President and the difficulty of finding her own way.
Seeing how both Emmy nominated shows deal with politics, each also take place in one of our favorite homes in the world—the White House. While neither program actually films in Washington D.C. (Veep films in Baltimore, Maryland and Scandal is shot entirely out of Los Angeles, California) they both are able to showcase the home beautifully. Here are a couple of our favorite White House rooms featured on the shows:
Vice President’s Office
The Vice President’s office, located in the West Wing of the White House is just as equally important as the Oval Office. We don’t often see photos of the room, but here is what it actually looks like! A lot of scenes from Veep take place in a replica of this office.
The Oval Office
The Oval Office, better known as the formal office of the President is probably the most recognizable room in the White House; where all the magic happens. Here is where the President conducts most of his meetings and a lot of all-important press conferences. Washington’s character Olivia Pope also spends plenty of time in this room while she “works” with the President.
Best of luck to both nominees at this year’s Primetime Emmys! The Emmys air Sunday, September 22 on CBS at 8:00 Eastern Time. Stay tuned during program for Coldwell Banker’s “We Believe” ad! Use the hashtag #CBBelieves to get in on the conversation.
