Taraji P. Henson sure has a lot of things to be excited about with her three Emmy nominations (and one Golden Globe award) for her role as Cookie Lyon on Fox’s Empire, her  role as real-life NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson in upcoming film Hidden Figures and her capsule collection with MAC


“This is my first time carrying a show and then going to carry a movie,” Henson says to EW “That’s a lot. It’s so stressful, and I had to really check myself because it’s so easy to take for granted when you get to a certain level. Like check yourself because people pray to be here.”



Cookie Lyon has become one of the most iconic TV characters with fans of the show dressing up their cats and dogs like the character and 16 million fans (including the Obamas) tuning in to watch Cookie do her thing.
