Taraji P. Henson took home a Golden Globe tonight for best actress in a drama for her role as Cookie on the hit Fox show Empire. When she was announced as the winner she stood up and handed out cookies to everyone in the audience and said “Cookies for everyone tonight, my treat!” She also said “Who knew that playing an ex-convict would take me all around the globe? … So the world loves real. Thank you.”

As production was telling her to wrap up her acceptance speech in typical Cookie fashion she said “I waited 20 years for this. You gonna wait!”

Taraj P. Henson has come a long way since she starred in Baby Boy along side Tyreese Gibson. Congratulations Taraji from everyone here at IFWT!
