Kathy Bates was shocked when she won the award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or Movie at the 2014 Emmys. The actress was nominated for her part in Season 3, “Coven,” as Madame Delphine LaLaurie -- a historical figure and serial killer who terrorized New Orleans in the 1830s.

The 66-year-old actress joked she didn’t think she was going to win because she was seated “way over there.” However, she was grateful for the award.

“I have to thank anybody who had anything to do with our show,” Kathy Bates said during her acceptance speech. She then dropped a minor tease to keep “American Horror Story” fans on their toes for the upcoming fourth season, “Freak Show.”

“Last season was awesome; this season’s going to be great.”

Kathy Bates beat out fellow “American Horror Story” Season 3 co-stars Frances Conroy and Angela Bassett, along with Allison Tolman of “Fargo,” Ellen Burstyn of “Flowers in the Attic” and Julia Roberts of “The Normal Heart.”
