Indiewire will provide regular updates of our predictions through August 25th, when the winners will be announced. 

Well, we got our answer to "how many 'American Horror Story' cast members can make it into the race?' A lot. Their dominance of half the category makes the race quite interesting -- not necessarily because they'll win, but because their overwhelming presence gives the show more weight. Julia Roberts had the early edge and remains a top contender after nominations day. Can the previously unknown Allison Tolman ride a wave of "Fargo" love to a win over the Oscar-winning A-lister? All of the above makes this usually dull category spark with life in 2014.

Below are predictions for best TV movie/miniseries supporting actress from both Indiewire Awards Editor Peter Knegt and Assistant TV Editor Ben Travers. Check out predictions in all the categories here.

The nominees:
Angela Basset, "American Horror Story: Coven"
Kathy Bates, "American Horror Story: Coven"
Ellen Burstyn, "Flowers in the Attic"
