Holland Taylor Was Girlfriend Sarah Paulson’s Biggest Emmys Fan: ‘Still Swooning’

So proud! Holland Taylor took to Twitter on Monday, September 19, to share her support for girlfriend Sarah Paulson after her exciting Emmys win at Sunday night’s ceremony.

As viewers witnessed, Paulson, 41, took home the award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or a Television Movie for her celebrated portrayal of prosecutor Marcia Clark in FX’s The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story. Watch Paulson's super-sweet shoutout to Taylor during her acceptance speech in the video above!

“Still in New York,” Taylor, 73, who didn’t attend the show with her ladylove, tweeted. “Still swooning. @MsSarahPaulson.” Taylor is currently working in the Big Apple on the Broadway play The Front Page with fellow thespians Nathan Lane and John Slattery.

Prior to sending her sweet sentiments to Paulson, the Two and a Half Men alum gushed over her significant other in a string of equally touching tweets.

“Having a heart attack…” she captioned a photo of Paulson — clad in a glittering green Michael Kors gown — walking the red carpet with the real-life Ms. Clark.

Moments before TV’s biggest night began, Paulson stopped to talk to E! News on the red carpet, where she lovingly gave Taylor a shout-out. “Hi, Holland,” she told the camera. “Holland Taylor, if you're watching, I love you.”

In response, Taylor uploaded a screenshot of the American Horror Story star chatting with E!, writing, “If I’m watching…?? If I’m WATCHING??? YES, I’m watching–!!!”

She enthusiastically continued, “good LORD! … I LOVE you!!!”

During a March 2016 profile for The New York Times, Paulson spoke candidly — and went public — about her unlikely romance with the Hollywood vet, nearly thirty years her senior, whom she started dating in 2015.

“If my life choices had to be predicated based on what was expected of me from a community on either side, that’s going to make me feel really straitjacketed, and I don’t want to feel that,” she said while discussing her sexuality. “What I can say absolutely is that I am in love, and that person happens to be Holland Taylor.”
