It took a behind-the-scenes village to transform Julianne Moore into Sarah Palin for the HBO movie "Game Change," and Moore thanked all of them as she took the Emmys stage Sunday night.
The actress won the Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a miniseries or movie, and she told the audience that she felt "so validated since Sarah Palin gave me a big thumbs down."
She also shared her gratitude for her dialect coach, "the amazing cast" and director Jay Roach, "who held my hand and guided me through."
Roach then went on to pick up the Emmy for outstanding directing of a miniseries or movie, and congratulated "Game Change" script writer Danny Strong, who won the Emmy for outstanding writing of a miniseries or movie.
