We didn’t think we could love Sarah Paulson any more than we already do ― especially after she slayed at last night’s Emmy Awards ― but then she went ahead and one-upped herself by getting Marcia Clark’s name engraved on her golden statuette.
Paulson, who took home the award for Lead Actress in a Limited Series for playing Clark in “The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” brought the prosecutor as her date to the award show. When the two showed up on the red carpet, they absolutely owned it.
BFF goals, right here:
When Paulson accepted her award, she made sure to thank Clark and even apologized on behalf of literally everyone for casting judgment on Clark, who acted as head prosecutor in the O.J. Simpson trial and was subject to cruel personal attacks on her character in the media.
“I’m proud to be able to stand here today in front of everyone and tell you I’m sorry,” she said, as the crowd applauded.
What happened next was even more heartwarming.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Paulson persuaded security guards into letting Clark enter the “winners circle” with her (where all the stars go to get their awards engraved). Then she had Clark’s name engraved on her award.
Seriously the best.
