Taraji P Henson was named Best Actress in a Drama Series last night at the Critics’ Choice TV Awards. As you know, Empire was arguably the most successful series premiere of the season. And the critics have been quick to honour new talent and creativity – they were the first (and few) to recognise Tatiana  Maslany’s work in Orphan Black. Full Story

Lee Daniels, Taraji P Henson, Gabourey Sidibe, and Jussie Smollett represented Empire yesterday at the FOX Upfronts. And, bonus, Terrence Howard wasn’t there to ruin the pictures. The big question was how many episodes. Empire’s first season had 12 episodes. Next? 18 split in 2 half seasons. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Taraji P Henson covers the new issue of EBONY. And she’s making headlines for a quote about restaurant reservations and being treated like she’s on the D-list, even though she was nominated for an Oscar not too long ago and working more consistently than many others over the last few years.

"I'm treated like I'm on the D-list. I'm still being considered with actresses who haven't done half the stuff I've achieved."

Mrs Timberlake. Blake Lively. Jessica Alba. Kate Bosworth.

She has a point.

LOVE HER SO MUCH. My Marion’s Funny or Die video – a cheeky acknowledgment of her superior French gorgessity and a man’s obsession with breasts. She also looks ridiculously beautiful in this shoot. The most amazing skin, great eye makeup, sleek and chic and sophisticated, and if Jacek ever had a chance (obviously never), I’d pack his bags for him and send him on his way. Full Story

I love her so much. I love that there aren’t five million things attached to her head. I love that if I told you she woke up with hair looking pretty much like this you’d believe me. Don’t you prefer when someone shows up on a carpet knocking it out of the stratosphere without seeming like they agonised over it for a month? Like Kate Beckinsale? Or, ahem, me? Anyway. Full Story

Getting some Halle love…and luck!

Today at the Essence Magazine Black Women in Hollywood Awards Luncheon – Halle Berry as usual looking immortal, even though the dress might be a little Kate Beckinsale for an afternoon event. Love how Kate Beckinsale is now synonymous with Overdress. I am STILL offended by her Grammy gown. Anyway, not sure how I feel about the business going on at the back of Halle there… You like? Is it a squirrel? Anyway, also at the event, also gorgeous – Supporting Actress nominee Taraji P Henson. Full Story

Benjamin Button’s brightest star looked like heaven last night in form-fitting white and an open back and restrained accessories and unfussy hair. Hustle & Flow was one of the options on the plane flying over here. Yet another reminder of her scene-stealing abilities. Scene-stealing from bland Brad Pitt is one thing…but stealing from Terrence Howard is another. Full Story

Button’s Best

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button – it’s a good movie, it’s an enjoyable movie, it’s a three hour movie and enduring it isn’t horrible at all… But … That’s it. My problem with Benjamin Button is that I didn’t really care about Benjamin Button. Full Story
