Sarah Paulson wins for American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson and brings the real Marcia Clark as her date
Sarah, who won for Best Lead Actress in a Limited Series, shared her big night with the woman who inspired it all. The actress brought along O.J.Simpson prosecutor Marcia Clark as her plus one to the big award show since girlfriend Holland Taylor was in NYC rehearsing for her upcoming play.

“Hi, Marcia. This must be strange for you, right?” he joked to one of the key players in the trial. “Are you rooting for O.J. to win this time?”
