I always thought that Sarah Paulson lived in a house filled with load-bearing beams constructed of forged-together Emmy awards. But that’s not the case. Sarah Paulson has been nominated for a bunch of Emmys, but she’s never won one until last night. Sarah Paulson’s living room trophy case finally has a pointy lady television award in it.
After being nominated 6 times, Sarah won an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or Movie for The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story for playing Marcia Clark. And in a very “that’s cute” move, she had brought Marcia Clark as her date. Congratulations, Marcia, on finally hearing your name and the word “won” in a sentence that also includes the name O.J. Simpson. That will be my final Marcia Clark/O.J. Simpson joke, if only because I’m pretty sure Jimmy Kimmel exhausted them all in his monologue.
Of course Sarah thanked Marcia Clark in her acceptance speech. Although this post would be 100% funnier if she hadn’t. Imagine the camera kept cutting back to Marcia in the audience and her face was like “Bitch, you better say my name. I didn’t squeeze into Spanx to hear you thank you agent and your 2nd grade teacher.” Sarah thanked Marcia a lot and also apologized for judging her during the O.J. trial. Sarah also got Marcia’s name engraved on her award after the show. And Sarah gave a shout-out to her girlfriend Holland Taylor at home.

Sarah’s acceptance speech was good, but it was rude of her not to give a single Thank You to the dozens of standard poodles who generously gave their PetSmart grooming clippings for Sarah’s Marcia Clark wigs. They were at least half responsible for Sarah’s award-winning performance.
Here’s Sarah and Marcia Clark at the Emmys last night. Sarah is giving you Mother-of-the-Bride JLo fantasy in that dress.
