The 2014 Prime Time Emmy Awards are in the books, and though most of Seth Meyers’ jokes fell flatter than Olive Oyl’s chest, there were two bright spots for horror fans!
Two of “American Horror Story: Coven’s” leads – Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates – each took home Emmy gold for their work as Fiona Goode and Madame Delphine LaLaurie, respectively. Lange nabbed the award for Outstanding Lead Actress In A Miniseries Or A Movie and Bates nailed down the one for Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Miniseries Or A Movie.
“American Horror Story: Coven” certainly ended on a sour note, but there’s no doubt that the witchy duo were the hottest thing going during every second that they had on screen. In her acceptance speech Bates seemed pretty pumped for the upcoming “American Horror Story: Freak Show” so here’s hoping for good things!
Season 4 of “American Horror Story” features returning stars Jessica Lange as Elsa Mars, Kathy Bates as Effil Darling, Angela Bassett as Desiree Dupree, Sarah Paulson doing double-duty as Siamese twins Bette and Dot Tattler, Evan Peters playing Jimmy Darling, and Emma Roberts as Maggie.
“AHS” newcomer Michael Chiklis stars as Wendell Del Toredo, and also joining the show this season is John Carroll Lynch (“Fargo”), who will play a core villain. Denis O’Hare, Gabourey Sidibe, Jamie Brewer, Frances Conroy, Matt Bomer, Wes Bentley, Jyoti Amge, Finn Wittrock, and Patti LaBelle round out the cast.
“American Horror Story: Freak Show” is set in 1950s Florida and centers around one of the last remaining freak shows of the time. Look for the season premiere on Wednesday, October 8th, at 10:00 pm ET/PT.
