This week, TVRage is predicting who we think will walk away with the prizes at the upcoming 64th annual Emmy Awards, which will air Sunday, September 23, on ABC. Yesterday, we looked at which show we thought would win Outstanding Miniseries or TV Movie, and earlier today we looked at the nominees for the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or TV Movie category. Now, we're going to take a look at the Outstanding Supporting Actress nominees for the miniseries or TV movie category. And they are:
- Frances Conroy - American Horror Story as Moira O'Hara
- Judy Davis - Page Eight as Jill Tankard
- Jessica Lange - American Horror Story as Constance Langdon
- Sarah Paulson - Game Change as Nicolle Wallace
- Mare Winningham - Hatfields & McCoys as Sally McCoy
This one seems fairly easy to confidently predict. Mare Winningham might have an outside shot as a cast member of the big category contender Hatfields & McCoys, and the same applies to Game Change's Sarah Paulson, though both were by no means the most memorable actresses in their respective shows. Judy Davis has even less of a chance -- Page Eight was good, but it's a relative lightweight to the rest of the shows in the category
There really isn't any question, really: American Horror Story's Jessica Lange will take home the top prize. The actress, who played the threatening southern belle Constance Langdon in the first season of the FX series, delivered one of the most talked-about performances on TV of the year, becoming, ultimately, the most reliable part of American Horror Story's uneven freshman season. Regardless of whether Lange manages to edge in a win, you can bet that she'll be a nominee next year -- though she'll be contending for the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or TV Movie award, instead (she's the lead for American Horror Story: Asylum).
WHO SHOULD WIN: Jessica Lange, American Horror Story
WHO WILL WIN: Jessica Lange, American Horror Story
