We absolutely LOVE Taraji P. Henson!

On Sunday Emmys, both Taraji and Viola Davis were up for for Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama Series — Henson for Empire and Davis for How To Get Away With Murder!

Viola ended up winning which was HUGE because she became the FIRST black woman to do so!

Well Miss Cookie herself stopped by to chat it up with Ellen DeGeneres, who of course brought up the Emmys!

It was at this point that the 45-year-old actress praised the HTGAWM star while revealing that she "would have felt weird" if she won the Emmy over Miz Davis!

Ch-ch-check out the interview (below) to find out why — and what it was like having her mom at the award show!
