Bravo Taraji P. Henson!

Before having seen her in Benjamin Button (and thus earning an Academy nomination for that performance), I was already in awe of Taraji P. Henson's acting prowess when she guest appeared on Eli Stone last year.

At the Oscar's Taraji will be up against these women:

  • Viola Davis, Doubt
  • Penelope Cruz, Vicky Christina Barcelona
  • Amy Adams, Doubt
  • Marisa Tomei, The Wrestler

I can't even say if she'll win it. But that won't take away the fact that she is a really, really good actress.

Here, watch what I'm talking about in this scene from Eli Stone and tell me if you aren't moved by her delivery:

  1. Taraji killed that scene! I never watched Eli Stone but have seen her in other projects. I am glad she is finally being paid attention in Hollywood circles.
