Sarah Paulson Wins First Golden Globe as Girlfriend Holland Taylor Gushes Over Her on Twitter
By John Boone
Third time's the charm for Sarah Paulson.
The People v. O.J. Simpson star won Best Performance by an Actress in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for TV -- her first Golden Globe after two previous nominations. "Oh my god, I feel like I'm going to faint," she said as she took the stage.
Paulson thanked her co-stars -- who she called her "merry band of gypsies" -- as well as the "remarkable" Marcia Clark. “You are an inspiration to me," Paulson said. "If I could live my life with a fraction of your wit, integrity and your unapologetic fierceness, I would be on the road to doing it right."
While Paulson declared her love for girlfriend Holland Taylor when she won the Emmy last year, Holland wasn't shouted out this time. Paulson's other half wasn't at her side for the shindig, as she is currently performing in a theater production in New York. ("#agony #mizry #TooFar #TooBad" she said of missing the show.)
Holland did tweet about Paulson ahead of the Globes though, calling her "a shimmering, spectacular, singular sensation...!!!" She also retweeted a photo of the American Horror Story actress and gushed, "Holy Christmas!"
