68th Emmy: Sarah Paulson Lead Actress In A Limited Series For ‘The People v. O.J. Simpson’ – Facts You Need To Know
Will Sarah Paulson finally take home an Emmy trophy after being nominated for the 68th Emmy Awards’ Lead Actress in a Limited Series category?Advertisement
Her portrayal as prosecutor Marcia Clark in the anthology series “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” has given her the chance to be back in the list of nominees for one of the world’s most prestigious award-giving bodies.
It can be noted that this is not the first time that the 41-year-old actress has caught the attention of critics.
Previously, Paulson has already been nominated for her role as Nicole Wallace in the HBO film “Game Change” and for her different characters in the FX television series “American Horror Story.”
However, this year’s Emmy Awards might just be different considering the fact that aside from her performance in “The People v. O.J. Simpson,” her supporting roles as Hypodermic Sally and Billie Dean Howard in “American Horror Story” may also give her the chance to take home a 68th Emmy trophy.
According to Entertainment Tonight, Paulson dished that she was thinking about writing her acceptance speech.
“I probably will write something only because I never have before, but then the last year when I went, so many people got up there with speeches, and some of the people have been up there a million times and they still get up there with speeches,” she reportedly shared. “And I thought, ‘It’s probably the better way to do it’ because I just fear I would get up there and white out and be like ‘bluehhheh.'”
For Bruce R. Miller of Sioux City Journal, it is highly possible that Paulson will win in the 68th Emmy’s Lead Actress in a Limited Series category.
“Courtney B. Vance and Sarah Paulson are front runners in the Best Actor and Actress categories for their compelling work as Johnny Cochrane and Marcia Clark,” the report stated. “Expect them to win and see if the series itself can’t eke out a Best Limited Series prize over ‘Fargo’ and ‘The Night Manager,’ two other stellar offerings.
