Taraji P. Henson satisfied a few Golden Globe attendees’ sweet teeth on Sunday night after winning her first Golden Globe Award.
Henson won the award for Best Actress In a TV Series Drama for her role as Cookie Lyon on FOX’s Empire and as she made her way to accept the big award, the beauty passed out cookies. “Cookies for everyone tonight,” the star said.
Henson went on to explain,”Who knew that playing an ex-convict would take me all around the globe … It’s Cookie who spent 17 years in jail for selling crack. So the world loves real.”
Taraji, who started to get the wrap shortly into her acceptance speech, completely ignored cues from producers, suggesting “I waited 20 years for this, you gonna wait.”
And wait they did.
Henson then went on to thank FOX executives for “believing in the show” and of course, her cast and crew who she revealed “I’m nothing without.”
Congrats to Taraji.
