Our favorite cookie, Taraji P. Henson took home the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Drama Sunday night (January 10) at the 73rd annual Golden Globe awards, and proved during her acceptance speech why she’s America’s darling
The Empire star’s competition was stiff. Henson was up against How To Get Away With Murder’s Viola Davis, Outlander‘s Caitriona Balfe, Penny Dreadful‘s Eva Green, and House of Cards Robin Wright, and when her name was announced, after fainting for a bit, she celebrated by handing out cookies to everyone in the audience as she walked towards the podium.
“Cookies for everyone tonight, my treat!” Henson said. “Who knew that playing an ex-convict would take me all around the globe? So the world loves real. Thank you.”
As she began naming the plethora of people who’ve helped her along the way, the teleprompter signaled her time was quickly coming to an end.
Seriously, who doesn’t love Taraji? Congrats again on the win.
