It was a big night Sunday for Cloquet native Jessica Lange at the 64th annual Emmy Awards in Los Angeles.

Lange took home the Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or Movie for her role as the evil neighbor, Constance Langdon, in the FX series "American Horror Story," reports The Huffington Post.

She previously won a Best Supporting Actress in a Mini-Series or a Movie from the Golden Globes for the role, as well as a Best Lead Actress in a Drama Series trophy from the Screen Actors Guild Awards.

The actress is set to return to the second season of "American Horror Story" in October. Since it is an anthology series, Lange will play a completely different role in the new story, titled "American Horror Story: Asylum."

The win in the category Sunday night earned Lange her second Emmy in four tries. She previously won for Best Leading Actress in a Miniseries or TV Movie for "Grey Gardens" in 2009.

Lange, 63, is also a two-time Oscar winner, with a Best Supporting Actress win for "Tootsie" in 1983 and a Best Actress win for "Blue Sky" in 1995.
