“I, along with the rest of the world, had been superficial in my judgment, and I’m glad that I’m able to stand here in front of everyone today and say, I’m sorry.” — Sarah Paulson, lead actress in a limited series, “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story”
2016 has been a stellar year for the gorgeous SARAH PAULSON. Starting the year off playing 3 characters over the course of two simultaneously airing shows, Paulson found herself stretching her acting talents. Paulson played two different characters (the eerie Sally and reprising a previous character Billie Dean Howard) on last season’s AMERICAN HORROR STORY: HOTEL. While playing powerful Prosecutor Marcia Clark in THE PEOPLE V OJ SIMPSON: AMERICAN CRIME STORY.
“This year, [creator] Ryan Murphy asked me to take on a daunting task. For the past five months, I have been filming, simultaneously, two very different characters on two very different shows.”
This amazing acting feat was not lost among her Emmy winning performances. At the 2016 Emmy Awards, Sarah Paulson Won for Lead Actress in a Limited Series. This comes after 6 previous nomination. Paulson used her acceptance speech to apologize to the largely misunderstood Marcia Clark, who she brought as a date to the ceremony. Clark was reduced to tears during the speech, much like the rest of us.
Now fresh off her Emmy win, Sarah Paulson is back on FX with American Horror Story: Roanoke. This season is already promising to be the franchises’ most mysterious season yet. The sixth installment in the Ryan Murphy-produced anthology premiered Wednesday to the third best numbers in total viewers and key demos of any episode in the franchise’s history.
