“Cookie for you. Cookies for everyone tonight!”

After 20 long years in this business, Taraji P. Henson snagged her very first Golden Globe for best actress in a TV drama for hit show Empire. Channeling her inner Cookie Lyon’s hilarity and outright outlandish attitude, Taraji grabbed a handful of cookies off her table and handed them to folks in the audience including Lady Gaga and Leonardi Di Caprio, as she triumphantly trotted her way to the stage.

Her acceptance speech was a hoot! From poking fun at the fact that portraying the former crack-selling, ex-convict got her the win to telling NBC they “gon’ wait” after trying to cut her off, Taraji marveled and reminded us all what unapologetic, #BlackGirlMagic is all about. Check out this iconic moment in award-acceptance history below:
