When you play a character named Cookie and you win the Golden Globe award for Best Actress in a Television Series, Drama, you're going to pass out treats.

As she made her way to the stage, Taraji P. Henson handed the celebrities she saw along the way cookies she grabbed from her table. "Cookies for everyone tonight, my treat!" she exclaimed. Henson said the win wasn't just for her portrayal of Cookie Lyon, but also for the rest of the cast of Empire. Just as she got started, the music began to play, but Henson was not ready to go. "Please wrap?" she said. "Wait a minute, I waited 20 years for this. You're gonna wait." Watch the video below. Catherine Garcia
