If you are like one of the millions of people who are glued to their television sets on Wednesday nights when Empire is in season, you know and love Cookie Lyon played by Taraji P. Henson. Empire’s success is in large part due to Taraji P. Henson’s flawless and unforgiving performance. Yesterday, Taraji P. Henson won the 73rd Golden Globe award for Best Actress in a TV Series Drama for her uncompromising role as Cookie Lyon on Empire. Taraji P. Henson is only the 3rd Black woman to win in this category. Congratulations on your win, Taraji P. Henson. Keep shining.
