Taraji P. Henson Gives Everybody a Taste of “Cookie” When Golden Globes Rushed Her Speech


by G. Brown

The 2016 Golden Globes Awards had some disappointing moments and some boring moments, but Tarji P. Henson’s acceptance speech was neither of those. The “Empire” actress won the award for Best Actress in a TV Drama and is one of the few Black female actresses to receive the honor. Taraji barely had the award in her hand, but was already wielding it like the diva her fans have come to love when the Awards gave her the wrap…as in sit down and stop talking.  But Cookie let ‘em know, she waited too long for this moment…take a look at the clip of Taraji’s acceptance speech.

Only Henson can put you in your place and still make you smile while she’s doing it. She now joins a very elite and exclusive club of Black actresses who have walked away with the Globe for Best Actress in a TV series.  While a total of ten Black actresses have been nominated over the last 46, Henson is only the third to actually win. Regina Taylor last won in 1993 for her role in “I’ll Fly Award” and before that the only other Black actress to win was Gail Fisher in 1973 for ground breaking role as Peggy Fair—a secretary on the hit detective show “Mannix”.  Henson has managed to grab hold of the elusive award that slipped through the fingers of other minority nominees like Viola Davis (“How to Get Away with Murder”), Kerry Washington “Scandal”) and Denise Nicholas (“Room 222) who was nominated three years in a row but never won.

Henson was one of few Black nominees to walk away the victor in the Globes 2016.  Will Smith lost out in the Best Actor in a Motion Picture when his “Concussion” couldn’t beat out Leonardo DiCaprio’s “The Revenant”.  Idris Elba (“Beast of No Nation”) also walked away empty-handed in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in Motion Picture category.  That win went to Sylvester Stallone for his role in “Creed”.  Elba also came up short in the Actor in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture Made for TV category for his much talked about role in “Luther”.  David Oyelowo’s “Nightingale” role was also in this category but the win went to Oscar Isaac for “Show Me a Hero”.

The only other big winner of the night was Denzel Washington who was really in a class all by himself for the Cecil B. Demille Award. The honorary award is bestowed upon a recipient for “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment”.

Congratulations to all the 2016 Golden Globes nominees and winners.
