Taraji passed out cookies to celebs saying, "Cookies for everyone tonight -- my treat!" She got her long train stepped on twice during the show but nothing could dampen her infectious enthusiasm. During her acceptance speech she thanked the Hollywood Foreign Press and talked about her character Cookie who who spent 17 years in jail for selling crack. The orchestra tried to play her off, but Taraji wasn't having it.

She read the telemprompter and was incredulous that they wanted her to hurry up. She said, "Please wrap? Wait a minute. I waited 20 years for this...Yeah, you're going to give me a little more time."
