The lovely Taraji P. Henson is not only our favorite Cookie of all time (Cookie Lyon is her character on Fox’s hit series ‘Empire’ for those who have been living under a rock this past year), but her career in general has been nothin short of amazing for the past several years.

On Sunday, Henson won the Critics Choice award for her role as Cookie Lyon, but she hopes it doesn’t stop there. She expressed that making history as the first black woman to win an emmy for the leading role in a drama series would be a game changer for her.

“It would be uncredible! Wow! I’ve gotta’ win. I gotta’ for history!”

We are rooting for you Taraji! Keep being an awesome person! And we are sure we’ll see you get that emmy one day. For now, check out some pics of this beauty in our gallery.
