Taylor, 73, stars in the classic 1928 play — about a group of motley reporters in Chicago chasing the scoop of a lifetime — alongside a cast of 25 including Nathan Lane, John Slattery and John Goodman.
Sitting side-by-side at the table at the famed theater restaurant Sardi’s, Paulson and Taylor were affectionate with one another. They remained deep in conversation through the night, alongside friends Rose Byrne and Paulson’s The People vs. O.J. Simpson costar David Schwimmer.
The lovebirds looked elegant as can be — Paulson, 41, in a chunky black turtleneck sweater, tailored grey pants and checkered jacket. Taylor wore a chic pink black-flowered dress with an elegant black blazer over it.
“Holland Taylor, I love you,” Paulson said while accepting her award.
Taylor — who couldn’t attend the Los Angeles ceremony as she was rehearsing for The Front Page in New York at the time — sent her love back to Paulson via Twitter.
“Good LORD! … I LOVE you!!!” she wrote.
The Front Page is playing at New York’s Broadhurst Theatre through Jan. 29, 2017.
