Sarah Paulson didn't sleep through her Emmy nom

Sarah Paulson was not one of those actresses who was caught restfully unaware of her Emmy nomination.

"I wasn't expecting it to happen, but I wasn't sleeping peacefully either," said Paulson, who was nominated for outstanding supporting actress for her performance as Nicole Wallace in HBO's "Game Change." "I don't want to make it sound like I was cool as a cucumber. I was hopeful, but I definitely wasn't sure it was going to happen."

The actress said she had made a deal with her manager to only call her with good news, so when her phone rang early Thursday morning she was thrilled.

"I started screaming like a banshee," she said.

Paulson took very seriously her role of Wallace, senior advisor for the McCain-Palin 2008 campaign that "Game Change" chronicled.

The actress has an even further connection to this year's Emmy Awards. Paulson is returning as a regular on theĀ  second season of "American Horror Story," which was nominated in the outstanding miniseries or movie category.

"It's going to be a very exciting time in the hair and makeup trailer," she said. "I can tell you that."

    A very simple way to make money online is to write blogs. Surely you know what a blog is. It is an online diary. All you need to start is a blog site that you can get for free in some blogging platforms. There are also platforms where you can buy a site if you want it to be professional looking so the choice is yours. After getting a site, choose a topic that will be the focus of your blog site. It has to be something you really know a lot about because you will be expected to write quality articles as often as you can. At this point you may be wondering where the money will come from. Money will come from advertisers who will post their ads on your site. You can get advertisers by enlisting your blog in advertising networks. They will be the ones to look for advertisers for you. All you need is to make sure that your blog site gets a lot of readers regularly.^;;^

    I think she is the lady that is on the McDonald's commercial. Or maybe she is an illegal alien obama voter.

      Not sure about her, but she played Nicole Wallace in Game Change who was Sarah Palins handler. I have seen the real Nicole Wallace in many interviews, and she doesn't have anything good to say about Palin, either. Then again, why would she!
