Jessica Lange brought in another Emmy for “American Horror Story” on Monday night. At the 66th annual Primetime Emmy Awards, Lange won for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or Movie for her portrayal of Fiona Goode in “Coven.” Lange was up against her “American Horror Story: Coven” co-star Sarah Paulson, who played her on-screen daughter, Cordelia Foxx, in Season 3 of the FX series. Also nominated were Helena Bonham Carter, Minnie Driver, Cicely Tyson and Kristen Wiig.
“I’m profoundly surprised at this, but very grateful,” Jessica Lange said during her acceptance speech. “Special thanks to everybody who is part of my life on this show, starting with, as Kathy [Bates] said, one of the greatest crews that work tirelessly.”
This is the third time that Lange was nominated for her roles in “American Horror Story.” In 2012 she won Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or Movie for her part as Constance Langdon in the "L.A. Murder House." In 2013 she was nominated for her role as Sister Jude Martin in “Asylum,” but lost to Laura Linney for her part as Cathy Jamison in “The Big C: Hereafter.”
