    I’d probably put Jessica Lange in “Asylum” as number one. Without a doubt, her best performance on the series. Frances Conroy in “Coven” is second. A true camp supporting performance.

    I dropped the series after Hotel, so I can’t rank the “Cult” performances. Anyway:

    Sarah Paulson in “Asylum”
    Jessica Lange in “Asylum”
    Frances Conroy in “Murder House”
    James Cromwell in “Asylum”
    Zachary Quinto in “Asylum”/Jessica Lange in “Murder House”
    Kathy Bates in “Coven”
    Denis O’Hare in “Murder House”
    Connie Britton in “Murder House”
    Frances Conroy in “Coven”
    Jessica Lange in “Coven”
    Sarah Paulson in “Coven” (writing was not really good)
    Kathy Bates in “Freak Show” (underused)
    Angela Bassett in “Coven” (overacted, but still more remarkable than the following)
    Denis O’Hare in “Freak Show” (nothing special)
    Sarah Paulson in “Hotel” (underused)
    Sarah Paulson in “Freak Show” (underused)
    Jessica Lange in “Freak Show” (more of the same)
    Finn Wittrock in “Freak Show” (unpopular opinion: this character is very easy to portray)
    Angela Bassett in “Freak Show”/Kathy Bates in “Hotel” (nothing special and underused)

    That is way too difficult to say, honestly. Sarah Paulson and Jessica Lange in Asylum is still the benchmark for this series. Jessica Lange also killed it in Freak Show IMO. Lily Rabe is criminally underrated for “Asylum”, it kind of makes me sick. Kathy Bates in Roanoke blew my mind, and so did Evan Peters in Cult. Finn Wittrock was scary in Freak Show!

    21.Denis O´Hare in “Murder House“
    20.Connie Britton in “Murder House“
    19.Angela Bassett in “Freak Show“
    18.Kathy Bates in “Hotel“
    17.Denis O´Hare in “Freak Show“
    16.Frances Conroy in “Coven“
    15.Sarah Paulson in “Coven“
    14.Kathy Bates in “Freak Show“
    13.James Cromwell in “Asylum“
    12.Sarah Paulson in “Hotel“
    11.Jessica Lange in “Freakshow“
    10.Angela Bassett in “Coven“
    9.Sarah Paulson in “Asylum“
    8.Frances Conroy in “Murder House“
    7.Zachary Quinto in “Asylum“
    6.Jessica Lange in “Asylum“
    5.Jessica Lange in “Murder House“
    4.Finn Wittrock in “Freak Show“
    3.Sarah Paulson in “Freak Show
    2.Kathy Bates in “Coven“
    1.Jessica Lange in “Coven“

    Let me say all of them are good to excellent performances and that Denis O´Hare would be higher if he would have been nominated for his performance on Hotel.Also I didn´t rank Cult because I just could stand two episodes of that season.

    Edit: I forgot to say that Kathy Bates on Roanoke blew my mind and would definitely be into the top 5.

    I just want to know what you mean by Sarah Paulson being underused in “Freak Show”. She’s had probably the second biggest role, and the most showy performance next to Wittrock’s and Lange’s.

    It seems that I dislike Denis and Kathy, that is not true. They are all amazing, but their best performances wasn’t even nominated…
    Lily Rabe (Asylum), Denis O’Hare and Evan Peters (Hotel), Kathy Bates and Sarah Paulson (Roanoke) could easily be on my top 10, especially, Lily, Kathy and Denis.

    I just want to know what you mean by Sarah Paulson being underused in “Freak Show”. She’s had probably the second biggest role, and the most showy performance next to Wittrock’s and Lange’s.

    Bette and Dot didn’t have much screentime after the first two episodes. I remember they were offscreen for most of the time, it was like 1 or 2 scenes each episode, with very few exceptions. Even in episode 9, when Sarah had a big dramatic scene with the characters crying or something like that, it was kinda out of the blue and the only scene she had for that episode.
    Besides, they were thrown around all the time, from their house to the hospital, to the circus, to Dandy’s house, to that hiding place Ethel(Kathy Bates) arranged for them, then back to the Circus again, and all the while nothing substantial happened to them on screen, like the writers didn’t know what to do with them. I felt like most of the cast had more screentime than Sarah, just like in Hotel, but in Hotel at least her performance was more unique to me, unlike Bette and Dot who were very stereotypical characters in general.
