Yesterday, Sarah Paulson arrived at the Golden Globes ceremony wearing a gorgeous off-the-shoulder Prada gown along with a custom purple Prada cast adorned with ruffles (and the Prada logo, naturally). Yeah, no biggie if you’re Sarah Paulson, right?

Sooo…what happened to Sarah’s arm? Vogue reports that the injury took place while she was filming the new season of American Crime Story (aka American Crime Story: Impeachment), in which she plays Linda Tripp. It’s unclear exactly what happened, but Sarah has told Deadline that the role is “totally challenging in a way that is very exciting to me as an actor, but it’s not super easy to live inside of it as a human being.”
Either way, Sarah was icing her arm literally right before the show last night. Posting an insta story showing a fully covered arm with a pack of ice on top of it. Here’s a pic:

Sarah was nominated for Best Actress in a Drama TV series for Ratched. She played titular character Mildred Ratched in the series and told Deadline, “The most important thing for me to do was to honor Louise Fletcher [the actress who played Nurse Ratched in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest in 1975] by taking her fundamental characteristic which was her stillness. If I can start there, then I can at least have this spine of her right in the way. It was sort of borrowed from the greats. I think Louise Fletcher did this so brilliantly, it’s very brave to be still and to be quiet and to let the audience come through in a way.”
