Viola Davis, “How to Get Away with Murder”
Taraji P. Henson ”Empire”

winners ^^^^^^^

Judith Light is good, great even but her time has come and gone…


“…her time has come and gone…”
Wow! That’s such unnecessarily insulting. But it’s interesting to see you don’t confine your over-the-top comments to Y&R bashing while cheerleading GH.


The only thing I really miss about the Dallas re-boot was Judith Light. She was really “bad” in the role of the crime-boss matriarchal Mom. Never forget the pat-down with the Mexican drug lord. So Good for her.

Haven’t seen Empire, but I really miss Taraji on Person Of Interest. Wish they hadn’t killed her off. And on this show when your are killed off, that’s it!
