American Horror Story (2013)

Kathy Bates as "Madame Delphine LaLaurie"

With more than 300 years having passed since the Salem witch trials, the women who managed to escape that time are now facing extinction. They have recently been the victims of an increasing number of attacks that have forced girls to be sent to a special school in New Orleans to learn how to protect themselves. Alarmed by the recent events and harboring a secret agenda, long-absent Fiona Goode, the most powerful witch of her generation, comes back into town to help protect the coven and destroy anyone who gets in her way.

Emmy (Primetime) (2014) Won Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie
