    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)

    JESSICA LANGE

    You can be happy, though, that Ms. Lange returns in the new season…and this time she’s the star. 
    NEW YORK TIMES 
    http://tv.nytimes.com/2012/10/17/arts/television/american-horror-story -on-fx-begins-second-season.html?ref=arts&_r=1& 

    [American
    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.

    “American
    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. 

    ROLLING STONE 
    http://www.rollingstone.com/movies/news/american-horror-story-asylum-r ecap-productivity-prayer-and-alien-hands-20121017 

    Jessica
    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. 

    TV GUIDE 
    http://www.tvguide.com/News/Wednesday-TV-Review-American-Horror-Story- asylum-World-Without-End-1054754.aspx 

    Lange
    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. 

    ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY 
    http://watching-tv.ew.com/2012/10/17/american-horror-story-asylum-seas on-2-review/ 

    Fresh
    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]. 

    PEOPLE 
    http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20639408,00.html &http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mcj0wlku3C1rn5z03o1_1280.png 

    Lange’s
    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.

    sylum-review/2012/10/16/45e93428-16ed-11e2-8792-cf5305eddf60_story.htm l 

    Among
    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.

    Lange, who won an Emmy for the show’s first season, gives a fascinating, flamboyant performance.

    Creators
    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. 

    Lange
    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 
    http://www.theglobeandmail.com/arts/television/american-horror-story-a sylum-desire-sleaze-and-funny-bits/article4616852/ 

    As
    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
    excellent. 

    HITFIX 
    http://www.hitfix.com/whats-alan-watching/review-fxs-american-horror-s tory-is-very-different-and-exactly-the-same-in-season-2 

    Overseeing
    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. 

    SLANT 
    http://www.slantmagazine.com/tv/review/american-horror-story-asylum/36 3 

    Lange’s
    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. 

    SALON 
    http://www.salon.com/2012/10/17/american_horror_story_mental_illness_i s_the_fashionable_word_for_sin/ 

    Lange and Cromwell, in particular, emote the hell out of their respective parts.

    Jessica
    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 ADVOCATE

    If
    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.

    Lange is more controlled than in Season 1, and also more terrifying.
