Paulson, whose performance as Clark in FX's The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story earned her a nod for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or a Movie, walked the red carpet in a stunning Prada emerald green gown. Clark, who appeared in good spirits, rocked a classic black lace dress.
Moments before the show commenced, Paulson made sure to give her girlfriend, Holland Taylor, a quick shout out. "Hi Holland — Holland Taylor, if you're watching, I love you," Paulson said to the camera during a red carpet interview with E!.
Holland, who was indeed watching the show remotely, responded with the cutest message.
"If I'm watching...?? If I'm WATCHING??? YES, I'm watching--!!! good LORD! ...I LOVE you!!!" she wrote on Twitter.
Once inside, host Jimmy Kimmel couldn’t help but single out Paulson and Clark. "Everyone in L.A. knows, if you want to win, sit next to Marcia Clark," he said. The camera then quickly focused on the pair and Paulson gave the comment a thumbs down.
Kimmel then asked Clark, "This must be very strange to you. Are you rooting for O.J. to win this time?"
