Taraji P. Henson Wins Golden Globe, Hand Out Cookies And Dedicate Her Award To Her Haters

| January 11, 2016 | 0 Comments

Taraji P. Henson took home the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Drama, but not before she passed out cookies to the audience in celebration of Empire’s Cookie Lyon. She then proceeded to give the best damn speech you’ve ever heard, because it was 20 years in the making and she was not about to let anybody cut her off.

Many actors of color have spoken out on the lack of roles for people of color in Hollywood over the past few years. Tonight’s winner for best actress in a TV drama Taraji P. Henson, however, wants to be clear that she has been working consistently since 1997 — it’s the accolades from mass audiences that are just coming in.

“I never was the actress who said there was no work [for me],” she said. “I really can’t complain.”

Her secret, she said, seems to be optimism.

“I’m an extreme optimist,” she said. “I came from the hood. You can’t be a pessimist living in the hood.”

Below are a complete list of winners and other highlights of the 2016 Golden Globe Awards:
