(Entertainment Weekly) – If you’ve been missing Empire as much as we have, here’s your fix: Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard host Spike’s Guys Choice Awards, which air on June 18. EW sat down with the duo—who bicker just as much as Cookie and Lucious—for an unfiltered talk about their friendship, preshow jitters, and the Lyons family.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You’re used to being in front of the camera, but does hosting introduce new nerves?
TARAJI P. HENSON: It helps when you have a partner. I host the Celebration of Gospel, too, and that’s just me, so there’s a little more pressure. But God is with us. Well, with me—I don’t know who’s with Terrence.
TERRENCE HOWARD: I got the other guy on my side. Big Devil. Big D is my rolling buddy!
HENSON: Oh, God.
HOWARD: No—oh, D.
