Julianne Moore Dings Sarah Palin in Emmy Speech

Actress Julianne Moore took home the Emmy for her role as former Gov. Sarah Palin in HBO’s “Game Change” on Sunday evening.

“I feel so validated because Sarah Palin gave me a big thumbs down,” Moore said when accepting her Emmy.

Backstage, Moore said the film was more about the politics rather than the person she portrayed.

“Isn’t as much about Palin as the political process and in an election year, this was an examination of how we pick our leaders,” Moore said.

“Game Change” was widely panned by conservatives because most of the stars and writers of the film have liberal views. Moore attended an Obama fundraiser last summer. The film was based off of a book by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin that detailed the presidential campaigns of both parties in 2008.
