After going through what Kathy Bates describes as a very “bleak” time in her life, Ryan Murphy cast her in season three of American Horror Story: Coven- a move Bates credits with resurrecting her career and introducing her to a younger audience, not to mention leading her down the path toward her second Emmy award. This season she returned to American Horror Story: Freak Show, earning a Golden Globe nomination last week for her role as bearded woman, Ethel Darling. Prior to her time on American Horror Story, Bates won an Academy Award & a Golden Globe for her work in Misery, directed by Rob Reiner, won a Golden Globe for The Late Shift, directed by Betty Thomas and won an Emmy award for her guest work on Two and a Half Men.

An episode that lets you know how to show someone you love them a homemade oven-mitt's worth. Gotta love Michael Scott and Yankee Swap. And let's not forget Jim's very personal present of a teapot with additional gifts to Pam and the infamous note that he removes.
