A thanks to God doesn’t happen every day in liberal Hollywood-land.

The 2015 Critics’ Choice Television Awards awarded Taraji P. Henson Best Actress in a Drama Series for her role in Fox’s Empire on May 31. In her acceptance speech, Henson included someone special in her thanks: God.
Empire, an American drama television show produced by Lee Daniels and Danny Strong, debuted in January. The show follows hip hop music company Empire Entertainment and the founders’ feuding family members.

To begin her award-acceptance speech, Henson exclaimed, “You know, I don’t know what to say, I just, so many people to thank!”

But, while thanking Fox, colleagues and critics, Henson also turned to acknowledge someone else: God.

“Thank you, God,” she stressed, “because with[out] God, I’m nothing.”
