    Jessica Lange appears in only three episodes of “Horace and Pete”, but she is given credit for all ten. How does this make her eligible in the Supporting Actress category? I think her performance is brilliant, but why did they allow her to compete as a supporting actress instead of as a guest actress?

    Because whoever did their campaign is just stupid. There are no other explanations

    I hope that the reason was so as not to take votes away from Laurie Metcalf. Then again, they submitted Aidy Bryant. The real question though is why Jessica Lange was used so sparingly. Did Louis C.K. change his plans? Did Lange not want to do it anymore? But then why was she credited on all of Act 2, despite never appearing?

    That’s what I was wondering as well. She was very underused. If she were competing in the guest category, she would be looking at a potential win. This way, even the nomination is very, very questionable. She definitely wasn’t a supporting actress this season like Edie Falco, but I wouldn’t mind if either of them is nominated. And I agree that the campaign was done wrong.

    Didn’t she have play commitments during filming? I’m sure the intention was for more but she couldn’t neglect her play. Which won her the elusive Tony. It’s possible she’ll be nominated in this category and actually win.

    I think the intent was always to give Lange a more mysterious and comedic supporting role with gravitas. Falco, who is brilliant here, belongs in Best Lead Actress in a Drama.

    Lange’s play commitments were already known. When Charlie Rose asked Lange about working with C.K., she became bubbly, stating she “adore”s him and wants to – “would love to work with him again”. I have a feeling she will be in C.K.’s alluded to Season 2.

    I, too, think her performance was brilliant and a big departure from her work on American Horror Story. She’s subtle, luminous, poignant and hilarious.

    I have the same feeling I had about Lange for Coven: I think she’ll definitely get nominated and win.
