Emmys 2012: Jessica Lange Wins Best Supporting Actress In Miniseries or Movie

Close

Jessica Lange won an Emmy award on Sunday night, Sept 23, for Best Supporting Actress In A Miniseries or Movie for her role in "American Horror Story."

The show, co-created by "Glee's" Ryan Murphy, tied with AMC's "Mad Men" with a total of 17 overall nominations. The show has a different location, theme and plot every season.  Backstage at the Awards, Lange told reporters the show feels like a complication of different mini films.

"I felt we had told that story in the first season and to return to it and revisit it was less interesting to me than starting fresh with a whole new place, time, characters, story, circumstances," Lange said. "I'm actually enjoying it, it's like doing a different film."

Lange is returning for season two of the show premiering on October 17 on FX, which she said will reveal "bigger themes" than the first season, according to the Hollywood Reporter. In season one, Lange played Constance Langdon, a character that toyed with the ideas of infidelity and adultery.

Lange also received recognition for her role in "AHS" from the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild, according to the Inquisitor.

Many questioned why the show was not placed in the TV drama category and when Lange was asked about it by reporters at the Emmy Awards, she responded, I don't know. That's an area that I wouldn't be able to speak to."

The second season of the show has been titled "American Horror Story: Asylum." It will reportedly take place in an asylum, according to the Reporter, and Lange will continue to play her Langdon character. 

Lange's Emmy win on Sunday night was her fourth career Emmy nomination and her second win. She won one in 2009 for the HBO film "Grey Gardens," in which she played alongside Drew Barrymore.
