Taraji P. Henson Won A Golden Globe & Gave Out Cookies, Making Her Our Favorite Person

Since it premiered last year, I’ve closely watched the hit Fox TV series Empire as a fan and as an entertainment journalist who also writes a lot about the show (you write what you know, right?). So I was happy when actress Taraji P. Henson won a Golden Globe for Empire — and then she gave out cookies to the crowd. Because her epic character on Empire is named Cookie Lyon, get it? And she also began her acceptance speech by saying, “Cookies for everyone!” Now that’s something I can definitely get into.


So clever. And I bet the cookies were yummy, too. From what I saw, it looked like they were pretty big chocolate chip cookies. I guess cookie recipients Lady Gaga and Leonardo DiCaprio will be the only ones who’ll ever know.

But this isn’t the first time Cookie has been related to cookies. Check out some Empire Cookie-themed cookies below.
