On Thursday, the Emmy nominations were announced and Taraji P. Henson scored a best actress nomination for her role as Cookie in Empire. But seemingly left out of the noms were the show and even Terrance Howard.

Needless to say, Lee Daniels had a few words:

#canfinallypostthis #timetoberealagain #emmyniceguyoverwith @jussiesmollett 😂

A post shared by Lee Daniels (@theoriginalbigdaddy) on

“Fuck these motherfuckers,” Daniels stated.

But before he could even explain himself, the news took the story and ran with it.

“OMG Lee Daniels said FUCK the Emmys”

But that was until Daniels explained he was just joking.


I mean, what’s wrong with having a little fun at the Emmy’s expense? Honestly, I would have never thought that the show would have gotten nominated, but I’m happy to see Taraji score one!
