People We Love 2016: Sarah Paulson

Written by | Entertainment, People We Love

You know it’s a good year for an actress when starring roles in two seasons of American Horror Story take a biographical backseat.

In career news, the headline was Paulson’s raw, emotional turn as Marcia Clark in the buzzed about American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson. Then Paulson brought the actual Marcia Clark as her guest to the Emmy Awards, and when she won the actress used the opportunity to eloquently apologize to Clark for how harshly the world had judged her during the trial. Meanwhile in the personal sphere the Twitterati continued to be all agog over Paulson’s life-affirming romance with another great of the stage and screen, septuagenarian Holland Taylor. Two accomplished actresses who do phenomenal work and openly embrace an intergenerational, same-sex romantic partnership — what’s not to love?!
