Paulson, 41, joined E! reporter Giuliana Rancic on the red carpet to discuss her nomination for “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.” The actress is nominated for outstanding lead actress limited series or movie for her role as Marcia Clark in the FX anthology series, as well as outstanding supporting actress in a limited series or movie for her role as Sally in “American Crime Story.” Before exiting her interview, Paulson gave Taylor a shout out, telling her “I love you.”

Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor have been romantically linked since December 2015. Taylor accompanied Paulson to the Critics’ Choice Awards in January, but Paulson brought former O.J. Simpson prosecutor Marcia Clark as her date.

Holland Taylor took to Twitter to respond to her girlfriend’s public declaration with her own sweet message:
