Everyone’s best girlfriend Taraji P Henson finally got her award at the Golden Globes. Taraji took home Best Actress in a Drama for her diva performance as Cookie Lyon. To celebrate she passed out cookies on her way to the stage.
Taraji defeated the Emmy winner, Viola Davis along with Caitriona Balfe (Outlander), Eva Green (Penny Dreadful) and Robin Wright (House of Cards) to take home the statue from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
The Golden Globes were running a bit long so the producers were trying to coax everyone into rushing through their acceptance speeches, but you don’t rush a woman who has been waiting 20 years. Taraji’s inner Cookie made an appearance:
“Please wrap? Wait a minute. I’ve waited 20 years for this.You’re gonna wait. You’re gonna give me a little more time.”
Taraji is only the third black woman to win this award.
