In all the frenzy surrounding Comic Con, you may not have noticed that the Emmy nominations were announced this morning. Well, they were, and genre is represented. Not a lot, and not as much as it should, but enough to make any horror fiend proud.
The biggest nod went to Vera Farmiga for her manic-depressive role as the ultimate Mother, Norma Bates. Farmiga was nominated for Outstanding Actress in a Drama for Bates Motel. Disappointingly, her co-star Freddie Highmore, who plays Norman, did not get a nod. His performance this season has been equally as intense, but in a more subtle, nuanced way.
Other major nominations went to American Horror Story:Asylum. One for best miniseries and one for - no surprise - Jessica Lange for her role as Sister Jude.
