The Queen of TV turns the big 4-5 today! It warms my heart to see such a deserving person taking the world by storm. The best part is that Fox and Empire seem to understand and appreciate what they have in her:
This is how you promote your star people! Given how she got pushed to background and then killed off in her previous TV gig, it’s good to see.
“Cookie is (finally) getting Taraji P. Henson the recognition she deserves. This woman has an Oscar nom, people! Yet, somehow, we’re still seeing her portrayal of Cookie described as a breakout role. Her acting resumé runs the gamut from Hustle & Flow to The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (where she received said Oscar nom). And, don’t think I didn’t love I Can Do Bad All by Myself, girl. I can think of no one more worthy of one million girl crushes. First stop: The Emmys. Next stop: World domination.”
Girl, she is well on her way! We’ll take her over Donald Trump any day.
