Sarah Paulson wants a "cocktail with my sweetheart" to celebrate Golden Globes nod
Congratulations! Are you exhausted right now or has the adrenaline kicked in?
I’m only tired because the Critics’ Choice Awards last night had me out a little bit later than I expected, but now I’m on my way to the airport because I’m going back to shoot Ocean’s 8, so I’m tired, but in a good way. It’s a good kind of tired.
Where were you when you found out about the nomination?
I was in my bed. It was a little before I was going to have to wake up and get ready to go to the airport, so I was sleeping and had a nice phone call that made me very happy, and then I couldn’t go back to sleep because I was too excited. Then the phone starts buzzing and you want to reply to people as it’s happening.
You mentioned that you’re heading to work. Are you going to celebrate in some way today or do something special for yourself?
I hope so! I’ve got some traveling to do first but I’ll probably have a cocktail with my sweetheart by the end of the night if all goes well.
How did your sweetheart congratulate you?
She’s been calling nonstop since we’ve been on the phone, but I’ve been on the phone with you so I haven’t been able to speak to her yet. [Laughs] She’s in New York so she’s probably just waking up. She’s doing a play so she sleeps a little bit later. You know, I’m obviously up a little bit more early than I would normally be.
Some things don’t last forever, but some things do. Like a good song, or a good book, or a good memory you can take out and unfold in your darkest times, pressing down on the corners and peering in close, hoping you still recognize the person you see there.
