In a new interview with the awards website Gold Derby, Jessica Lange ranked her performance in the anthology series "American Horror Story."

Lange starred in the FX series co-created by Ryan Murphy for five seasons: "Murder House" (Season 1), "Asylum" (Season 2), "Coven" (Season 3), "Freak Show" (Season 4) and reprised her "Murder House" role for Season 8, "Apocalypse."

Though she won two Emmy Awards for her work on "AHS," and thanked Murphy for giving her the opportunity to star in the franchise, Lange was honest about her performances and admitted that some of the seasons were "not my favorite." She also revealed that she did not watch "Apocalypse," which aired last fall, where she returned to the show as Constance Langdon, who she played in "Murder House."

"I never saw Apocalypse, so I don't know [where it would rank]," she told Gold Derby.

Lange said her least-favorite performance was in the fan-favorite season "Coven," where she played aging supreme witch Fiona Goode.

"I was stunned that year to get the Emmy for that part," she said. "The part was very well-written. I didn't particularly like the whole set-up and season and story we were telling...It was not my favorite."

Second-to-last is her Constance Langdon performance in "Murder House." But Lange said her second-favorite performance was Elsa Mars, the owner of a freak show in "Freak Show." But in the no. 1 spot is her role as Sister Jude in "Asylum."

Lange is set to star in Ryan Murphy's first Netflix show "The Political," which debuts on the streaming service on Sept. 27.
