Didn’t see a thread like this and figured it would be cool to start one where everyone could post who they want to be considered for the upcoming Emmys in any category.
I’m assuming you all know my number 1:
BEST ACTRESS (DRAMA, MINISERIES/TV MOVIE, or whatever other category they decide to throw this show under) –
You can be happy, though, that Ms. Lange returns in the new season…and this time she’s the star.
NEW YORK TIMES
Horror Story] is, however, once again driven by an enjoyably outsized
performance from Jessica Lange, this time as a deranged nun who mixes Cherry Jones from Doubt with a Tallulah Bankhead Die! Die! My Darling!chaser. Drink if you dare.
Horror Story” has always been the Jessica Lange show, and this season
is no different…[it] is worth watching alone for the shot of [her]
sensually rubbing perfume onto her chest while wearing a red teddy and
habit. [Lange] closes her eyes and a choir sings.
Lange, who swanned around [in season 1] upstaging everyone like a
deranged Tennessee Williams heroine auditioning for a remake of some Bette Davis Grand Guignol classic from the ’60’s […] is equally terrific in the second season.
provides [American Horror Story: Asylum] with some of its rare subtlety
as Sister Jude, a sadistic nun who could have been a ridiculous figure,
something out of a John Waters movie, were it not for Lange’s constant
undercurrent of shaded sensuality.
from her Emmy win, Jessica Lange returns as a new character in a
completely new story for [American Horror Story] and, again, she’s
magnificent. Her role is a doozy – a little of Meryl Streep‘s ironclad nun from Doubt, a little (heaven help us) Nicolette Sheridan –
and Lange shapes her performance with a light but firm technique […]
seamlessly transforming into [a] new, intensely watchable [character].
capacity to elevate cheesy dialogue to an over-enunciated art form
[returns in full force]. “Let me give you fair warning,” she tells
Cromwell at one point, “I’ll always win against a patriarchal male.” The
way Lange lets her tongue slither on “male” is laughably excessive, but
also just enough to make women across America want to start a slow-clap
standing ovation in her honor. The Oscar and Emmy winner is not the
whole show. But at times, she’s close.
the terrific cast, Lange and Cromwell are especially transfixing. It’s
no surprise Lange won an Emmy for her role in the first season. She’s a
powerhouse again, staying just on the right side of hammy as she spits
one threat after another.
A ferocious Jessica Lange.
Lange, who won an Emmy for the show’s first season, gives a fascinating, flamboyant performance.
Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk aren’t terribly interested in subtlety or
nuance, and the forbidding archetypes that Jessica Lange and James
Cromwell play could have sprung directly from the brain of Douglas Sirk,
or rather, the ill-fated and genetically cursed love child of Sirk,
David Cronenberg and Sylvia Plath.
plays the magisterial nun in charge of the wonderfully dank, shadowy
asylum, and she’s flat-out transfixing. Murphy no doubt lures so many
quality actors to his shows by tantalizing them with the opportunity to
play big, broad characters, but both Lange and Cromwell (who plays the
asylum’s mad scientist) walk right up to the line of hamminess without
crossing over to the dark side. These magnetic performers make a meal of
their roles without overtly licking their chops.
There aren’t enough words to convey what Jessica Lange brought to this season of “Asylum”; she didn’t just bring Sister Jude to life, she gave the entire season a center of gravity and undeniable life force. Lange could go big in her scenes with James Cromwell and subtle and wounded in the last few episodes; ther wasn’t a not she couldn’t play and she made it all look easy. It was like watching a virtuoso at work.

Lange is magnificent here.
THE GLOBE AND MAIL
a bitter nun with a working-class New England accent, Lange’s doing a
180 from her demented Southern belle season 1 role, and she’s
the madness is the stern and sadistic Sister Jude, played by
scene-stealer Jessica Lange in a deliciously theatrical manner. Lange
was the highlight of the first season, playing meddling neighbor
Constance Langdon, and she swallows this even meatier role whole.
Jude is, as ever, first among equals. She’s thrown over the Blanche
Dubois–in-a-drag-show Southern accent of season one for an equally
captivating Boston lilt. She’s a bit less of a scenery chewer here — as
much as a nun who likes to cane people, lusts after her monsignor, and
wears lingerie under her habit can be — but she is more human. Yes,
she’s an unfeeling, malicious scourge to her wards, but it seems to
spring from her faith, both in God and the power of the devil.
Lange and Cromwell, in particular, emote the hell out of their respective parts.
SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
Lange is back. So wicked in season 1, she’s devilishly good here as
that aforementioned iron-fisted nun who whips (bare-bottomed) naysayers
with riding crops and has her own (sexual) secrets simmering just below
the surface at all times. The character is never as black-and-white as
her habit, though; as with season 1, you’ll be left guessing exactly
what she’s up to and whose side she’s on at all times.
the great Jessica Lange keeps working on this series she will find
herself (since it’s FX after all) in a red bustier taking the missing
link to bed.
NEW YORK POST
Lange is more controlled than in Season 1, and also more terrifying.
