Originally posted 12/19/2011 04:00PM

Actress Jessica Lange and her longtime partner, playwright and actor Sam Shepard, ended their relationship almost two years ago, PEOPLE has learned exclusively.

The couple, who have been together since 1982, have two children, Hannah and Samuel, together.

"They both are pursuing independent lives," says a source.

Lange, 62, who stars as Constance in FX's hit series, American Horror Story, was just nominated for a Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild award. She will be seen next in The Vow, costarring Rachel McAdams, in February.

A rep for Lange confirms the split – but has no additional comment. Shepard's rep could not be reached.

Mad Men and 30 Rock Named TV's Top Shows

Comedy rocked once again at the 61st Primetime Emmys, where 30 Rock was named top sitcom series and its lead male star, Alec Baldwin, outstanding actor in a comedy series. Both also took the titles last year.

"That was a real nail biter," said the show's creator, producer and star Tina Fey when she accepted the award toward the end of Sunday night's ceremony. She also thanked NBC for keeping the show on the air, even though, as she pointed out, it is more expensive than a talk show.

For the second consecutive year, AMC's Mad Men, a period '60s look at Madison Avenue's advertising world and those who worked in it, was named outstanding drama series.
