On Sunday night, Sarah Paulson was honored with her first Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress.
She won for her portrayal of Marcia Clark in the FX series American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.
It was also fitting that she even brought the actual Marcia Clark as her plus one to the awards ceremony.
One of the most touching parts of her winning speech was dedicated to Clark.
And naturally, Marcia Clark was tearful as Paulson spoke about her.
In 2012, Paulson was nominated for her first Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie in the HBO drama Game Change.
And ever since that time, we've seen Paulson nominated for her various roles in the different iterations of the American Horror Story anthology series.
For the past five years, Paulson has been up for an Emmy in either the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or a Movie category or Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or a Movie.
You know the old saying: "If at first you don't succeed, try again seven more times."
Congrats, Ms. Paulson, you deserve it.
