“This really means a lot to me because I feel like I wanted to be an actress since I was in utero,” Paulson said after receiving her award. “Everyday on this set was kind of like being in a very fine acting school….I want to thank Marcia Clark for existing, for your strength and your brilliance and your perseverance.”

Paulson had already picked up the Golden Globe earlier this month for best actress in a limited series for the same role.
