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.
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.
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.
Other female winners for the Emmys are the following:
Best Actress In A Drama Series: Claire Danes, "Homeland"
Best Supporting Actress In A Drama Series: Maggie Smith, "Downton Abbey"
Best Actress In A Comedy Series: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, "Veep"
Best Supporting Actress In A Comedy Series: Julie Bowen, "Modern Family"
Best Actress In A Miniseries or Movie: Julianne Moore, "Game Change"
Emmy host Jimmy Kimmel promised viewers the "greatest prank ever" while hosting the show and he might have just accomplished it.
When comedian and actor Tracy Morgan "passed out" on stage at the Emmy Awards on Sunday night, Sept. 23, it became a Twitter phenomenon within minutes. However, the whole thing was done as a hoax and was concocted by Kimmel in a prank done in order to raise ratings for the show.
Within minutes after it occurred, over 25,000 tweets were issued in response to the fainting hoax, according to the Inquisitor.
