Sarah Paulson made a statement by choosing to bring Marcia Clark, the head prosecutor she played in The People v. O. J. Simpson, to the Emmy’s instead of her partner, Holland Taylor.
But in an interview with Giuliana Rancic, Paulson, 40, made it clear that her 72-year-old partner is never far from her mind.
Speaking to the TV host, the actress, who is up for several awards today, ended her interview with an adorable shout-out to her girlfriend.
“Hi Holland,” she yelled enthusiastically to the camera. “If you’re watching, Holland Taylor, I love you.”
But perhaps even sweeter was Taylor’s response, which she shared with her over 50,000 followers on Twitter.

The pair confirmed their relationship last December, with Taylor acknowledging their large age difference.
“There’s a very big age difference between us which I’m sure shocks a lot of people, and it startles me,” Taylor said at the time.
She also said that the couple have discussed marriage, but only casually.
“She’s mentioned it because just from a spiritual point of view, from a heart point of view, as a — as a — as a deed that has a very rich symbolic gesture to it, it has its attraction. But it’s been a very casual conversation at this point,” Taylor said of Paulson.
“But it’s not — it would be a very private thing. I would not do that publicly. But as a symbol, as a pledge, as a plighting one’s troth I would see it — that it would be a wonderful thing to do.”
