Taraji P. Henson won the Golden Globe Award for best lead actress in a TV drama on Monday in LA, but that's not the best part. As the actress made her way to the stage to give her acceptance speech, she passed out cookies. It's a hilarious move, given the fact that her character is named Cookie Lyon on Empire. When Taraji entered the press room for a postmortem interview, she addressed the cookies in question on more than one occasion. Read what she said below, then see more of the Empire cast's Golden Globes night.
- On where the cookies came from: "There were cookies on the table!"
- On what was going through her head: "I just did not expect them to call my name. I never did. I just never put that much on it . . . you just never know how it's going to come out. You don't. When they called my name . . . I was like, 'Well, cookies are here. I guess I should hand them out!' [Laughs] I don't know, it was just a spontaneous moment."
- On who received said cookies: "I gave them all away. One went to Angela Bassett. One went to Gaga. And the last one to Leonardo DiCaprio."
