The actress swept awards season with her performance as Marcia Clark in FX’s American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, collecting Emmy, Golden Globe, SAG and Critics’ Choice accolades for the role, which helped transform public perception of the once-maligned prosecutor.
As a key member of Ryan Murphy’s company of actors, Paulson also received four straight Emmy nominations for his American Horror Story anthology, to go with an additional nomination for HBO’s Game Change.
In film, Paulson will be seen in June 2018 as part of the all-star female ensemble in Warner Bros.’ Ocean’s 8, along with Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett and Anne Hathaway. Also, she soon will begin production on Amazon Studios’ true-life serial-killer mystery Lost Girls, the narrative feature debut of documentarian Liz Garbus (What Happened, Miss Simone?).
Paulson’s other credits include 12 Years a Slave, Mud, Carol, Martha Marcy May Marlene and NBC’s Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, all of which she received or shared awards nominations for. On the stage, she starred in Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie and Donald Margulies’ Collected Stories on Broadway and Lanford Wilson’s Talley’s Folly off-Broadway.
