Eye on Emmy: Jessica Lange on Playing Horror Story's Hell of a Belle and Season 2′s 'Wild Ride'

Emmys
American Horror Story Set in 1950

Constance Langdon is not a neighbor you want to borrow a cup of sugar from, and you most definitely should beware when she comes bearing home-baked gifts (or, for that matter, “sweet breads”). And yet as portrayed by Jessica Lange, who came into FX’s American Horror Story with two Oscars and one Emmy on her mantel, the Harmon family’s oft unwelcome visitor did not repel but regale us.

Thus far, Lange has netted a Screen Actors Guild Award and a Golden Globe for her first venture into series television. Will claiming another Emmy, for Lead Actress in a TV-Movie/Miniseries, make her housewarming complete? READ THE TVLINE Q&A


Eye on Emmy: Christina Hendricks Reflects on Joan's Rise and Mad Men's One Taboo Twosome

Emmys
MadMen_Hendricks_DW

There was a time when Mad Men‘s Joan Holloway, played by Christina Hendricks, was but the pneumatic head secretary at Sterling Cooper. Someone to be marveled at for her beauty and occasionally respected for her smarts, and yet ultimately dismissed in keeping with the sexism of the times.

Jump to now and she’s come a long way, baby.

In the wake of a season-ending salvo of episodes that firmly redefined Joan’s role at SCDP and in doing so gave Hendricks winning material, TVLine invited the actress …READ MORE

Emmys 2012 Best Movie or Miniseries

Game Change is more than just the name of the polarizing HBO picture that could take home the 2012 Emmy in the now-merged movie/miniseries category, it’s also the underlying theme of the whole race.

Until last year, when PBS’ Downton Abbey pulled off an upset, HBO projects had taken the gold for nearly a decade. Suddenly, it seemed like anything could happen — and, suddenly, it did. Downton’s move to the drama series category makes the movie/mini derby an HBO-vs.-PBS free-for-all. READ MORE, REVIEW CONTENDERS & VOTE

Can The Amazing Race's Emmy domination be stopped? Vote below for your five dream nominees!

Reality television, by its very nature, thrives on unexpected twists, shock eliminations, and upset victories. But the most surprising thing about the Emmy race for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program over the last five years has been the almost total stagnancy of its pool of contenders.

Indeed, from 2007-2011, the same five shows …READ MORE, REVIEW CONTENDERS & VOTE

Eye on Emmy: Lena Dunham Defies Convention and Ditches Inhibitions In HBO's Golden Girls

A year ago, you’d have been hard-pressed to find anyone who had ever heard of Lena Dunham. Now, of course, the 26-year-old New Yorker’s name is one of the household variety. Her Judd Apatow-produced HBO series, Girls, didn’t just earn its creator-writer-director-leading lady rave reviews, the pop-culture phenom also sparked discussions of nepotism and race (since she and two of her co-stars come from distinguished families, and there’s not a person of color among the cast). And, come Emmy night, it’s quite possible you’ll hear her name again, following the words “And the winner is… ” READ MORE

If you’re the type who adores Community and treasures your collection of past Comic-Con badges, you’ve probably been a fan of Danny Pudi for some time now. The rest of the world may not be as familiar with the 33-year-old Chicago native, but that’s likely to change soon. Three seasons of playing Abed Nadir, the innovative NBC comedy’s emotionally stunted pop culture fiend, has put Pudi at the forefront of the cult hit. READ MORE

If Emmy voters want to, they could really shake things up in this year’s Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series race. Make no mistake: Established favorites like The Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons and 30 Rock’s Alec Baldwin will make the cut. But there’s also an outside chance they’ll have to battle hungry newbies like Community’s Joel McHale and Parks and Recreation’s Adam Scott for Emmy gold. READ MORE, REVIEW CONTENDERS & VOTE
