Taraji P. Henson Reveals Why She Handed Out Cookies at Golden Globes 2016!
Taraji P. Henson happily holds onto her award while attending the InStyle & Warner Bros. After Party following the 2016 Golden Globe Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday (January 10) in Beverly Hills, Calif.
The 45-year-old Empire star, who took home Best Actress in the TV Series Drama category, was accompanied by her co-stars Jussie Smollett, Trai Byers, Grace Gealey, Serayah, and Bryshere Y. Gray, who didn’t make it to the parties but did suit up for the ceremony.
Taraji passed out cookies while she made her way to the stage to give her acceptance speech but it was totally “spontaneous.”
“There were cookies on the table!,” Taraji expressed (via PopSugar). “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.”
