Kathy Bates has been nominated anew as Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series at the 68th Emmy Awards for her performance in “American Horror Story: Hotel.”
Will she be successful in bringing home the trophy once more?
It can be recalled that in 2014, the 68-year-old actress and director got the award.
In this year’s Emmys, Kathy Bates is being pitted against Olivia Colman of “The Night Manager,” Regina King of “American Crime,” Melissa Leo of “All the Way,” Sarah Paulson of “American Horror Story: Hotel” Jean Smart of “Fargo.”
What could have been the predictions lately? Would her portrayal of socialite Madame Marie Delphine LaLaurie make her standout among the contenders for the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series trophy from the 68th Emmy Awards?
Let us take a look at the speculations of some noted sites when it comes to the final name that will take home the said award.
As suggested by Gold Derby, it appeared that Kathy Bates would fail to win her second Emmy for “American Horror Story: Hotel.”
So, who would be taking it home?
Accordingly, Jean Smart would be successful in winning her fourth Emmy trophy this weekend, another feat for her this year. It can be recalled that back in January, she won at the Critics’ Choice Award for a similar category.
“Smart is an Emmy winner and you’d think that if she’s playing a mob boss that you’d get fireworks, but you don’t,” Riley Simpson wrote about the possible winner of the 68th Emmy Awards’ Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series.
“What she does have is an easier category; there’s nobody from ‘The People v. O.J. Simpson’ here, so I think that she was able to get the nomination that way, but she’s not doing anything new that will excite the voters and get the number-one votes,” the writer added.
And Forbes seemed to have agreed.
The new outlet dished that Jean Smart would be the runaway winner of the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series before the end of the 68th Emmy Awards.
