Lange's SAG Award competitors were Kathy Bates for Harry's Law, Julianna Margulies for The Good Wife, Kyra Sedgwick for The Closer, and Glenn Close for Damages. Lange had previously been nominated for two SAG Awards: for Tony Richardson's feature drama Blue Sky (1994), opposite Tommy Lee Jones, and for Michael Sucsy's television drama Grey Gardens (2009), opposite eventual SAG Award winner Drew Barrymore.

Additionally, Jessica Lange has six Oscar nominations to her credit. She won twice, as Best Supporting Actress for Sydney Pollack's Tootsie (1982), opposite Dustin Hoffman, and for Blue Sky. (Nell's Jodie Foster was that year's SAG Award winner.) Lange's other Academy Award nominations, all of them in the Best Actress category, were for Graeme Clifford's Frances (1982), in which she played Frances Farmer opposite Kim Stanley and Sam Shepard; Richard Pearce's Country (1984), also with Shepard; Karel Reisz's Sweet Dreams (1985), playing Patsy Cline opposite Ed Harris; and Costa-Gavras' Music Box (1989), with Armin Mueller-Stahl as her Nazi father and Frederic Forrest.

Among Jessica Lange's other movie credits are John Guillermin's King Kong (1976), with Jeff Bridges and Charles Grodin; Bob Fosse's All That Jazz (1979), with Roy Scheider; Bob Rafelson's The Postman Always Rings Twice (1981), with Jack Nicholson; Bruce Beresford's Crimes of the Heart (1986), with Sissy Spacek and Diane Keaton; Michael Caton-Jones' Rob Roy (1995), with Liam Neeson; and Wim Wenders' Don't Come Knocking (2005), once again with Shepard.

Following a six-year hiatus, Lange will next be seen on the big screen in Michael Sucsy's The Vow, starring Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum, and in Daniel Adams' The Big Valley, an adaptation of the old television series featuring Sarah Paxton, Richard Dreyfuss, Lee Majors (of the original series), Aidan Quinn, Bruce Dern, Josh Stewart, John Savage, Travis Fimmel, Buck Taylor, and Jason Alan Smith. Lange, who took over from the previously announced Susan Sarandon, will play the old Barbara Stanwyck role.

Also featured in American Horror Story are Dylan McDermott, Frances Conroy, Kate Mara, Denis O'Hare, Evan Peters, Taissa Farmiga, and Lily Rabe. Among the series' directors are Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk.
