The cast of Moonlight had one hell of a night after taking home a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture, Drama.

When the name of director Barry Jenkins’ drama was announced, the entire ballroom erupted in applause and stood to honor the cast and crew for delivering one of the most powerful stories of the year.

“Thank you very much, Hollywood Foreign Press Association,” producer Adele Romanski said when accepting the honor. “I, to be honest, didn’t think this was going to happen.”

Jenkins chimed in, “As someone who went eight years without making a piece, I gotta give love to these people right here, Plan B and A24, A24, A24. To my mom … Denzel [Washington] says in Fences, ‘I ‘dun gave you everything, I gave you your life.’ Mom, you gave me my life, and I hope being on this stage right now is fulfillment of the life that you gave me.”

He added, “And to everybody on Twitter and Instagram and back home in Miami and New Orleans, if you have seen this film or you have told a friend, all I ever say is please tell a friend, tell a friend, tell a friend. Much love.”

The drama beat out Hacksaw Ridge, Hell or High Water, Lion and Manchester by the Sea. 

Congrats to the squad.

Finally! Taraji P. Henson Confirms Relationship With NFL Baller Kelvin Hayden

Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
