Originally posted 09/19/2016 05:30PM

Sarah Paulson's 2016 Emmy Awards date Marcia Clark has been quite literally inspirational for the actress.

The Emmy winner opted to have the real-life O.J. Simpson prosecutor (whom she played in The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story) sit beside her at the awards show, and she couldn't have been more proud.

After thanking Clark in her acceptance speech for the outstanding lead actress in a limited series or movie, Paulson told PEOPLE that she and Clark have become close.

"I wanted so much, if I won, to say what I said to her with as many eyeballs on me as possible," Paulson said after accepting her award. "Because I feel as a country, we owe a big collective apology for getting it wrong about Marcia Clark and putting her through so much ... trauma."
