When Sarah Paulson won Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series for her stellar performance in The People v. O.J. Simpson, she dedicated much of her acceptance speech to the real life Marcia Clark (who just so happened to be the actress' date to the ceremony). As Paulson explained, while playing the prosecutor in the FX series she "had to recognize that I, along with the rest of the world, had been superficial and careless in my judgment [of Clark]. And I am glad to be able to stand here today in front of everyone and tell you I'm sorry." Hearing Paulson's moving speech, Clark got visibly emotional, tearing up as the crowd broke out in roaring applause.
