Horror at the Emmys


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.
