What do you think, Derbyites? Will Sarah Paulson win TWO Emmys next year, for both ‘American Crime Story’ (Lead Actress) & ‘American Horror Story: Hotel’ (Supporting Actress)? If not, will she at least be nominated for both?August 27, 2015 at 1:54 pm #359378
No. Kerry Washington as Anita Hill in HBO’s Confirmation will be in contention next year.August 27, 2015 at 1:56 pm #359379
I think she will be nominated for both, she has been nominated four years in a row, even for Coven, so it could happen.August 27, 2015 at 2:44 pm #359380
I think she’ll be nominated for both but I think she’ll went with nada.August 27, 2015 at 3:22 pm #359381
She’ll probably be nominated for both but I don’t think she’s a big enough name yet for them to vote for her twice. Especially if she does end up winning this year then she’s not gonna be overdue anymoreAugust 27, 2015 at 4:00 pm #359382
No, but she’ll probably end up winning at least one a la Martin Freeman’s win for “Sherlock”.August 27, 2015 at 8:17 pm #359383
It depends on what happens this year. If she looses again it´ll be proof that they are just not that into her, enough to nominate her yes, but not passionate enough to give her a win, taking in consideration her insulting snub for Asylum and maybe Freak Show. In that case they most definitely wouldn´t reward her next year, much less twice. If she wins, it´ll mean the support for her is much more solid, and she probably will be nominated for both. Not sure about winning them thoughAugust 27, 2015 at 10:19 pm #359384
If she doesn’t win this year – and there’s a real chance she couldn’t since Mo’Nique gives an equally deserving performance – then it will only add to her due factor next year. If she does finally take it this year, however, I see her win being the double-nomination.August 28, 2015 at 7:23 am #359385
I worry that Paulson will just never win for the American Horror Story franchise (her characters may just be a shade too offbeat and she doesn’t have the veteran status others from the franchise have used to overcome that), so I actually think that her better chance is with American Crime Story, depending, of course, on how strong the competition is and how strong her performance ends up being. Especially if episode submissions extend to the longform leading categories next year, if given just one strong episode, she could definitely pull off a win there.August 28, 2015 at 7:48 am #359386
How do we even know yet if either of them is a lead performance? They could both be supporting parts for all we know.August 28, 2015 at 10:05 am #359387

Because neither Ryan Murphy nor Sarah Paulson is stupid and they know how to play the Emmy game. Knowing that she’ll get nominated either way they’ll make sure to submit her in different categories.
If they submit her in the same category twice she might not even be nominated, if they submit her in the Lead for ACS and Supporting for AHS they’ll get two nominations. Simple math.
Also dows anyone else think that FX will have a really good year next year? They’ll have AHS, ACS and Fargo in Limited Series categories, I know Louie will be gone but I think they’ll still manage to get 50+ nominations with only 3 series + Margo Martindale, anything else will be a nice addition.August 28, 2015 at 2:37 pm #359388
Yeah, KylieistBoi hit it on the head. Murphy and Paulson know how to play Emmys.August 28, 2015 at 2:52 pm #359389
Paulson won’t be as overdue if she wins this year for “Freak Show.” I think “American Crime Story” looks like a camp event, and it’s entirely possible that the Emmys won’t latch onto it at all. She might even be dropped for “Hotel” next year if/when she wins next month. Or the two vastly different roles prove to voters once again Paulson’s incredible range and versatility and they can’t deny her more nods and possble wins. I’ll keep her in my predictions for “American Horror Story” as long as she’s on the anthology series. I’m very skeptical about “American Crime Story,” though I can’t wait to see it, of course.
