    Ryan Murphy says she is terrifying. My fear is that he is referring to the quality of her acting.

    Can she come anywhere near to equalling Jessica Lange in making our blood run cold?

    Is Gaga the lead this season? I’d rather it was Paulson instead. I like Gaga as a music artists, but her acting is not something I’m checking for. No, she can’t equal Jessica. Luckily, there are other characters on the show that I can watch for.

    Jessica Lange never was the most terrifying thing about AHS nor she ever made my blood run cold but she was easily and constantly the best part of its uneven seasons. Lady Gaga will never match the integrity and excellence of La Lange but she doesn’t need to. She just needs to be creepy and decent and she’ll be good. It’s a Ryan Murphy show after all, we don’t need to set our standards too high.

    Agreed.

    I know the whole reason this thread exists is because to give the forum some life that’s been missing because of Robin Wright and Kevin Spacey but here we go

    1) Jessica Lange was never the scary part of AHS and if you really watched the show you’d know it by now. 
    2) Lady Gaga will be in 8 episodes this season, which means she is not a lead but a supporting performer in a huge ensemble.
    3) If Denis O’Hare is right this season Kathy Bates has the Jessica-sized role 
    4) She’s been in two movies for exactly like 3 minutes, if anyone can judge her acting abilities by those scenes then maybe it is time you stop complaining about Margo Martindale, Khandi Alexander or Elizabeth Banks’ Guest Actress nominations.  
    5) So far Ryan Murphy, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson and Matt Bomer praised her acting.

    Thank you and have a good day, byeeeeeeee

    She will be a guaranteed Golden Globe contender and possibly could win there. Those voters need her on the red carpet and potentially on stage with the trophy.

    I wonder if Emmy voters will bring her along for the ride next year. It just seems like they can’t resist checking off as many names as possible in the acting categories for this show. Also, her respectability has increased after her strong performance at the Oscars this year.

    I have always been wary about this casting choice mainly because she’s a singer, not an actress. But… I will admit that it is an interesting choice nonetheless.

    Oh wow I had no clue she wasn’t a lead. I mean, I guess FX is smart to market the show with “LADY GAGA” to attract viewers, but I’m a little surprised she’s only going to be in about half the episodes!

    I guess that makes room for Queen Paulson and King Bomer (*SWOON*)

    Wasn’t Adam Levine in some bulk of Asylum’s promos? He had a fairly small part (though not insignificant plot-wise) for about half the episodes. And 8/13 is actually pretty good considering how many, say, France’s Conroy last season or even Cromwell or Rabe in Asylum appeared in.

    Gaga was also pretty good on SNL. I’m cautiously optimistic.

    No, the exact opposite. I feel like the show is getting more and more cheaper with these choices as if that is possible. Kardashians and J.Bieber for s6!
    Really, though, if it weren’t for its starry ensemble it could really have aired on Disney Channel. The writing is seriously on that level.

    I don’t think Golden Globes will embrace her. Believe it or not, but HFPA members are still trying to recover their wounds from Tourist, and they are trying to approach everything with caution.
    They didn’t even nominate Julia Roberts last year in the Supporting category for the big hit The Normal Heart, and they also snubbed Asylum and Freak Show in the main categoy in the past few years.

    I thought she was pretty good, too!  She surprised me. But I still won’t check in. Has nothing to do with her. I’ve just had enough of AHS and its bad writing. That’s the only scary thing about the series. Even Frances Conroy couldn’t make me stick around last season, and I adore her.  I’ll just enjoy reading everyone’s comments here, instead.

    What wounds? That movie was forgettable, people were over those nominations the second right after they were announced. Plus that was what? 4 years ago? Not even Depp or Jolie remember they were nominated for that.

    I think she’ll do ok, not like JLange levels, but definitley get the feeling she’ll give a performance strong enough to silence her doubters. I mean she made a lot of people believe she was a batshit crazy arty eccentric for how many years? She had acting classes when she was at performing arts school, so that’s better than nothing.

    She’s very savvy I’ve got to hand it to her, she clearly wants to break into acting, and can’t imagine the film roles she’d be able to get right now are very strong or in the types of films she’d want. By doing a limited series, she’s gonna get herself much more screentime than she would in a film, enough time to prove to the public and film/TV execs that she can act. And she’ll get a wide audience too. She’s put a lot into AHS. I get the feeling from everything I’ve read she really wants this to work.

    I can see her missing the Emmy nomination but Globe seems likely, they do play favourites, and she recently presented at the HFPA grants banquet so she seems open to be pally with them.

    As a fan of both Gaga & AHS, I hope she’s going to be decent, at least. It’s pretty shitty of some people to say she’s going to be terrible a month and a half before the premiere. So, yes, the fact that my favorite musician’s got a role on my favorite TV show does make me want to check into Hotel.
