How Losing a Job Led American Crime Story's Sarah Paulson to Stardom

Originally posted 03/17/2016 11:20AM

Talk about a silver lining!

Sarah Paulson had been planning on doing a play in New York City, but when that fell through she found herself being presented with the opportunity of a lifetime.

Suddenly with free time, she accompanied actress Jessica Lange – who had starred with Paulson in The Glass Menagerie on Broadway in 2005 – to a Project Angel Food event in Los Angeles.

"She had just gotten into town to start doing season 1 of American Horror Story, and L.A. is not really her town," says Paulson, who is featured in the current issue of PEOPLE. "She didn't know a ton of people so we were spending a lot of time together."

Also at the event was AHS creator Ryan Murphy, who had previously cast Paulson in a memorable guest-starring role on his FX drama Nip/Tuck.

"At one point, Jessica just threw her arm around me and said to Ryan, 'Oh, can't you find something for Sarah to do on the show? She's going to be in town now.' And he said, 'Oh. Yeah. I think I could do that,' " Paulson recalls.

What If MTV Ran the Emmy Awards?

Originally posted 08/20/2014 07:10PM

To avoid a conflict with Sunday Night Football, NBC moved the 2014 Emmy Awards telecast up a month, to August 25. But in swerving clear of the football juggernaut, the Emmys steered right into the lane of the landmark cultural occasion of late August: the MTV VMAs, scheduled for one day prior.

It got us thinking: What if we took things to their logical conclusion and handed MTV control of the Emmys, as well?

Using categories from both the VMAs and their summertime counterpart, the MTV Movie Awards, we've imagined what would happen if the cable network was in charge of handing out trophies for everything that's on TV, not just music videos.

Massive spoilers below!
