Why Taraji P. Henson Needs to Win an Emmy

Just Give Taraji P. Henson the Emmy Already

Empire ended its spectacularly successful first season last night, which also means, sadly, that we’ll have to say farewell to Cookie Lyon for a few months. (Unsurprisingly, the show has already been renewed for a second season.) The matriarch of the fictional hip-hop dynasty has been the highlight of the primetime soap, brought to life by Taraji P. Henson’s incomparable, dedicated performance.
