Shocking! Taraji P. Henson Says She Is Treated Like She Is On The D-List!

Taraji P. Henson might have been nominated for an Oscar for her role in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, but according to the actress, she isn’t treated like an Academy Award nominated, accomplished celebrity.

“I’m treated like I’m on the D-list,” the 44-year-old told Ebony magazine for their October issue. “I’m still being considered with actresses who haven’t done half the stuff I’ve achieved.”

She continued, “When people tell me ‘no,’ I get hyped,” she says. “Because when I prove that I can and will, I love watching people eat crow.”

During Henson’s interview with the mag, the star revealed that although she is treated like D-lister, she still manages to use her star power to get what she wants. “To get my fat ass into a restaurant. If someone tells me there’s a wait, I’ll walk right to the front of the line like, ‘I need a table now. I need to eat, and I want this. So let’s work this out,'” she said when asked what was the last thing she used your celeb status to get.

It was a big night for Sterling K. Brown who made history after becoming the first Black actor to win the category for Outstanding Performance by a Male in a Drama Series. Brown not only took home the award for his role on NBC’s This Is Us, but he also received a second SAG award for Best Ensemble.

Morgan Freeman was the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award, making a seemingly short and awkward speech. While receiving the honor, he called out an audience member for talking.

 “Hey … I’m talking to you. Yeah, hey,” the 80-year-old said. “Okay, well you just stand out to me. That’s all.” Freeman then explained, “These moments in one’s life usually will call for an entire litany of thank yous.”

And we’ve said it before and we will say it again, Olivia Munn and Niecy Nash need their own show. The pair provided comedic relief yet again while announcing the award for Outstanding Performance by a Male in a Drama Series.

When discussing who gets to announce the winner, Nash explained she gets to say Sterling’s name if he when’s because “he’s Black.” She did however explain Munn “can say anyone who is Asian who is nominated.”
