The winner for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television also thanked her sisters, her cast including Amy Adams, and director Jean-Marc Vallée.
In "Sharp Objects," reporter Camille Preaker (Amy Adams) returns to her small hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. In the process, she attempts to put together a psychological puzzle from her past. Clarkson plays Adora, Preaker's mother. The eight-episode series first aired on HBO in July and August.
"It's an emotional, dark, tormented story, but its great drama. She's one of the more difficult characters I've ever played," Clarkson told The Advocate in July.
Clarkson's previous accolades include Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in "Pieces of April" (2003), two Emmys for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series for her recurring role in "Six Feet Under," also on HBO; and a 2015 Tony Award nod for "The Elephant Man."
