Will Catherine Zeta appear in this episode? She was mesmerizing as miss de Havilland.April 9, 2017 at 11:26 am #1202061248
Given how nominations are decided in that category based off of before-and-after clip packages, that is very possible.
You could also add sound mixing and sound editing. Anyone knows which show/episode holds the most number of Emmy noms for a single episode? Because “And the Winner Is…” might just break that.
Sound mixing is a popular vote.
I believe that it is the Boardwalk Empire pilot, which won directing, art direction, editing, makeup, sound editing and visual effects). It was further nominated for cinematography, hairstyling and sound mixing, was included as one of six episodes to represent the show for best drama and was the first episode that featured the show’s nominated title design, bringing the episode to eleven total nominations.April 9, 2017 at 4:41 pm #1202061454
This Episode will be lots of fun!April 9, 2017 at 8:20 pm #1202061645
Okay, before this thread descends into another Lange hating bitch fest, I will say she absolutely kills this episode. Sheer force acting domination.
Unfortunately this episode reveals some weakness in Surandon’s performance. She’s very one note here and has lost that nuance she had in early episodes especially episode 2.
Judy Davis is scary good in her one scene with Lange. She stretches from A-Z emotion before revealing a monster underneath even more intimidating than Bette or Joan.
Okay I’m out. Back to the regular schedule Lange bashing. lolApril 9, 2017 at 9:08 pm #1202061667
I’m not sure how it’s Lange hating when most of us just want Bette and Joan to get equal attention in a show that’s called Bette and Joan. This episode was now the 3rd (or 4th, but at least 3rd) episode in a row that Lange had much more to do than Sarandon. Her performance is great, I think she’s mostly just playing Joan the same way she plays every character, but that’s still pretty great. Also not sure how you can really evaluate Sarandon and call her performance one note when she barely has any storyline anymore. Her scene towards the end with Molina was as good as anything Lange did this episode.April 9, 2017 at 9:09 pm #1202061669
Lange is good, but Sarandon is much better.April 9, 2017 at 10:07 pm #1202061708
This show was probably the last time we see Jessica Lange playing opposite another famous actress of her statue in Ryan Murphy show. I don’t see Sigourney Weaver, Glenn Close or Sissy Spacey working with her on Ryan Murphy show in the near future. No one is gonna want to feel as humiliated as Susan Saranon. Seriously they should have just called the show Joan.April 9, 2017 at 10:31 pm #1202061730
Glenn Close is way too good to be working with Ryan Murphy Lange or no Lange.April 10, 2017 at 12:07 am #1202061768
I wish Ryan Murphy would’ve written more Bette/Sarandon so it would feel like a real Feud, instead of just the Joan Crawford/Jessica Lange show feat. some other well-known people fighting.
I love Jessica Lange dearly and I don’t want to be negative towards her like some people have said on here, but she’s Ryan Murphy’s OG Sarah Paulson. Whenever he’s got her committed he’s willing to overwork her, which led to her leaving AHS (only for her to star in a play he wrote.) Clearly he’s going the same route as he has in the past.
If you’re gonna write a show about a Feud, then damnit Murphy, make it equal. I know you’re capable of doing so, you did it perfectly with ACS1. Give us more of Bette Davis’s perspective.
One thing I am looking forward to seeing, though, is the fallout between the Hush Hush, Sweet Charlotte production/Davis/Aldrich/Wardner and Crawford, and when they decide to cast Olivia De Havilland. I can only imagine how ugly that’ll be.April 10, 2017 at 2:35 am #1202061858
Finding myself growing weary of this episode. It feels as exploitative as the system it purports to criticize. I’m curious to see how this series ends, but tonight’s episode was a bit of a chore to sit through, and I’m somewhat dreading having to slog through two more episodes.April 10, 2017 at 6:14 am #1202061999
Loved this episode. A+. The reaction when she gave Davis the matches was by far the highlight for me.April 10, 2017 at 7:53 am #1202062152
Yeah Lange was great but still it should have been about both ladies not just her. I think I’ll put her in front of Witherspoon in my personal line up. With every episode she’s getting better and better but once again in no fucking way she resembles Joan Crawford. She’s just playing another crazy version of Jessica Lange but she’s so fucking good doing this over and over again! And I love she looks like fucking shar pei. Botox made her look like alien. Now she looks like every other woman in her late sixties.
