The season finale of “AHS: Roanoke” airs this Wednesday, November 16 on FX. It’s been hailed as one of the best installments the anthology series has ever produced, either matching or topping the previously hailed second season, “AHS: Asylum.” In our TV forums, our readers have been praising Bates, Porter and Paulson all season long. Here are just a few excerpts to help sway your votes:

Sab227: Kathy Bates I can’t even begin describing here how much she chews the scenery my god I’m already going to say if she doesn’t win the Emmy then it will be one of the biggest snubs ever.

AayaanUpadhyaya: Adina Porter is so good in this. Emmy nod!

vinny: Sarah Paulson and Cuba Gooding Jr. … YES!

Kathy Bates gives career-best performance on ‘American Horror Story: Roanoke’

sofan: If episode submissions mattered at all miraculously next year no one would be able to beat Kathy Bates. Such an amazingly terrifying performance.

Hunterbergfeld: I honestly think Adina Porter is the lead and that she is not credited as that because they are trying to surprise us.

Atypical: Sarah Paulson and Kathy Bates were both excellent. Thrilling turn for the season, and needless to say, I have to see how this all concludes.
