"It was bittersweet [not to win] you know what I mean because we all want to make history and be important to society and everything, but then I thought about it," Henson told DeGeneres. "I was like, it's 2015 and we have a black president and no black woman has ever won. Like this is weird."
You know, let's just break this barrier down and keep on pushing. I think the universe is happy Viola deserved that award. And honestly I would have felt weird if I had gotten it over her. Ya know what I mean. She's been doing it longer. You just got to give respect and know when your time is.

Viola and Taraji even hugged it out when Viola's name was called.
