You American Horror Storyfans must be Academy Awards fans, too, because when we quizzed you Viggle LIVE! users on the number of Oscar nominations the women of Coven have received, an overwhelming majority of you guessed correctly.
79 percent of you answered correct — those actresses have conjured a total of 11 nominations!
(For the record, 11 percent of you guessed 9 nominations, and 10 percent guessed 7.)
AHS legend Jessica Lange (Fiona Goode) is the most-nominated thespian of the bunch, having been recognized for her supporting role in Tootsie (1982)and her leading roles in Frances (1982), Country (1984), Sweet Dreams (1985), Music Box (1989), and Blue Sky (1994). Furthermore, she took home Oscar gold for Tootsie and Blue Sky.
Meanwhile, the inimitable Kathy Bates (Delphine LaLaurie) gleaned nominations for her leading role in Misery (1991) and her supporting roles in Primary Colors (1999) and About Schmidt (2003) — winning the Oscar for inflicting Misery upon all of us. (We personally think her Titanic role should have been recognized, but alas…)
And Gabourey Sidibe (Queenie) and Angela Bassett (Marie Laveau) have both been nominated once — the former for her titular role as the abused teen in Precious (2009) and the latter for her portrayal of Tina Turner in What's Love Got to Do With It? (2003).
