Winning Best Actress in a Television Drama for Fox's megahit, Henson kicked off her speech by promising: "Cookies for everyone tonight. My treat."
"Who knew that playing an ex-convict would take me all around the globe?" Taraji wondered, before the dreaded cut-off music started swelling.
But the Person of Interest alum was having none of it. It seems Henson's taken a cue or two from Cookie, and refused to have her speech cut short.
"Please wrap? Wait a minute. I've waited 20 years for this," snapped a visibly insulted Henson, who was nominated for an Emmy for Empire but lost to How to Get Away with Murder's Viola Davis. "You're gonna wait. You're gonna give me a little more time."
The actress, who opted for a stunning white gown rather than the animal prints Cookie usually goes for, then finished her speech and walked off the stage like a queen.
Are you happy Henson was rewarded for her portrayal of Cookie?
