    Now that you’ve seen nearly all of Vera Farmiga’s performance this season in “Bates Motel,” do you think she should compete in lead or supporting? And why? Please vote in our poll above and then add your comments below …

    Remember, Vera was nominated in lead for the first TV season of “Bates,” but then got dropped. Is that her best bet now that she’s receiving wide acclaim for her spectacular grand finale as Norma? Or should she just give up on lead and aim lower. Sometimes that’s a great (and more realistic) alternative …

    Yes, the current plan is for Vera to go into supporting and she may have already made that declaration to the academy when her peeps submitted her paperwork for the Emmy contest. But there’s still time for her to change her mind. Should she? — that’s the question we need to wonder here now that we’ve seen (nearly) the whole season … Let’s figure this out and give her our best advice. Vera has been a longtime fan of Gold Derby — she’s told me so many times —

    She shouldn’t change her mind. She belongs in supporting. She has the screentime, the storyline (none), she’s supporting Norman and Highmore. She’s not the lead of the show anymore.

    Yeah, I concur. I love her, and wish that she had the “meat” to go lead, but she is clearly supporting the wonderful Freddie Highmore this season. I would love to see them both nominated.

    Supporting, though – and I say this as someone who enjoys Bates Motel and thinks Highmore richly deserves a nomination – she hasn’t really nothing anything to warrant Emmy recognition this season. Frankly, I’d rather see Brooke Smith garner a nod.

    Supporting- She hasn’t had much this season. As well as her chances are better Lead Acteress is stacked and except really for Thandi Newton there are five open slots that have not been locked up.

    Vera Farmiga’s character in Bates Motel Seasons 1-5 was a gift on all levels and I am forever grateful. She touched our minds,thoughts, and hearts with memories that will last a lifetime. A great performance accomplishment! – Blaine

    Doesn’t matter. She’s not happening either way.
