Sound off on Taraji P. Henson’s Most Epic Moment of the Year (So Far)

Take advantage of the Cookie-ocracy.

We couldn’t escape the incredibly talented and graceful angel Taraji P. Henson this year, and we wouldn’t have had it any other way. She served Emmy-worthy performances as Cookie Lyon on Empire week after week, graced the cover of major magazines like W and Essence and made entertainment history with a Critics’ Choice award win. On top of running the world and our DVRs, in every one of her interviews, she kept it real as hell. How she slays so effortlessly on and off screen, we may never know. For now, we’ll just sit back and enjoy all this powerhouse has to offer because she gives us life for days, weeks and months.

Because she dominated the pop culture conversation this year, Taraji will be roasted and toasted for her accomplishments at VH1 Big In 15 With Entertainment Weekly on Monday, December 7th at 9 ET/PM. Before the big event, let’s refresh our memory (not that it needed refreshing) on Taraji’s slayage this year. Check out some of the highlights and vote on the most noteworthy below. Good luck, Cookie Monsters, and may the odds be ever in your favor.

Pizza is bae. And yes, I still say bae.
