‘American Horror Story’ star Sarah Paulson is nominated for Lead Actress in a TV Miniseries or Movie at the August 25 Emmys, and she spilled her award show secrets exclusively to HollywoodLife.com — her dress, her survival tips and her favorite junk food to prep for the big day!
Sarah Paulson: ‘American Horror Story’ Star Shares Emmy Prep Tips
Most nominees prep an acceptance speech, incase they win at the Emmys, but not Sarah Paulson. The American Horror Story star is not expecting to win at the August 25 award show.
“My speech will be ,‘Thank you for letting me sit in this seat because I’m not winning this award,'” Sarah tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “I had a speech prepared last year, then I lost and I decided never again, so now I’m just prepared to lose and just grateful to be there.”
Sarah’s got the right attitude! Being nominated is a huge honor in its own right, plus, she has way more to be focused on than winning an award. What could be more important than an Emmy? Shoes!
“Thinking about how many Advil I can take so that I can wear the shoes I really want to wear” is Sarah’s tip to surviving the big night. Her other survival advice? “Bring a snack!” Sarah’s favorites are Fritos, ice cream, french fries, chocolate and Doritos — not your typical cleansing diet for the Emmys, and we love it.
Sarah Paulson Reveals Emmy Dress
Sarah’s all set in the shoes department — remember, she’s bringing Advil! — but what about the dress?
“It is like an ’80s prom dress,” Sarah reveals to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY “because who wouldn’t want to go to the prom when you didn’t get to go the first time?”
For the record, we think Sarah is joking about the ’80s prom thing, but she’ll look amazing in whatever dress she rocks. We can’t wait to see her red carpet look!
HollywoodLifers, if you went to the Emmys, would you eat junk food like Sarah or would you want to eat healthy for the big show? Let us know!
