Here’s Why Taraji P. Henson Should Host Every Single Event Ever

A scrapbook of Cookie’s turnt up Saturday at the Guys Choice Awards.

June 11, 2015

Ok, so Spike TV's Guys Choice Awards 2015 were on Saturday so this might be a minute late, but you know what, I don't have cable (like you), and this is worth it. Taraji P. Henson co-hosted the event with Terrence Howard, and the resulting press photos are an unequivocal testament to her bullet-proof swag. She sang, she laughed, she danced, she threw shade and stole the spotlight. We don't have any idea what she's saying/singing/laughing about, but the pictures really say it all. See for yourself.
