As most of us know, the new anthology series from the never stopping brain of Ryan Murphy is fast approaching. FEUD: Better and Joan, gives an inside look into one of the most infamous feuds in history, which took place before, during and after the filming of the movie, ‘Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?’
Veteran actress and two time Oscar winner, Jessica Lange, steps into the shoes of Joan Crawford, an Oscar winner who was known in Hollywood for her controversy surrounding ‘Mommie Dearest’ and being an actress in the golden age of cinema.
Susan Sarandon, an Oscar winner in her own right, portrays two time Oscar winner, Bette Davis. Bette is widely considered to be one of the greatest actresses of all time.
So, many have seen the Trailer and Teasers and I’ve heard rave reviews. But the question is this.. Who will take the Emmy? Most likely both Lange and Sarandon will be up for Outstanding LEAD Actress in a Miniseries/TV Movie, but who out of the two will be most likely to win? There could be a chance that Sarandon could go for supporting, as I have heard that Lange has the slightly larger role… But it’s unlikely.
Will a real life feud for the Emmy take place between the two actresses? And will you be Team Joan/Lange or Team Bette/Sarandon?February 23, 2017 at 4:41 pm #1202020026
Of course it is hard to predict due to the fact the show doesn’t start until early March, but i’m going with my gut on Jessica Lange. The Emmys love her and so does everyone (honestly yet to come across someone who doesn’t like her), but i’ll give Sarandon a chance. I have heard they are both brilliant.. Jessica also apparently has that bit of a larger role.
To me, Sarandon has controversy, the whole supporting Jill Stein thing of course back fired on her, but hey who knows that probably makes no difference I guess.
What do you guys think?February 23, 2017 at 9:58 pm #1202020219
I don’t think either will have an easy road to the Emmy. 2017 will see quite a few worthy female performances. Lange has won three recently, Sarandon is resented among some, and the show itself will get mixed reviews.
Between the two Lange really grabbed me with the pilot episode, but the show really is slanted towards Bette, and Sarandon will be seen as the flawed heroine of the show.
I think Feud will do better with the supporting roles, especially Tucci.
My predictions are: Lange and Sarandon duke it out for the Golden Globes, with Sarandon winning by a hair. They’ll both lose the Emmy by splitting, and Tucci will sweep awards season.February 23, 2017 at 10:49 pm #1202020281
Sarandon is overdue for Emmy recognition. If Jessie wins (doubtful this time due to the competition elsewhere) she’ll match Maggie Smith’s triple crown record of 7 awards: 1 Tony, 2 Oscars, and 4 Emmy Awards. But Sarandon’s overdue status and the juiciness of her role only secures her the nod. She’s so unlikeable these days based on her politics the popular vote will go elsewhere.February 24, 2017 at 12:59 am #1202020346
I can see a scenario where Lange & Sanrandon split (and Witherspoon and Kidman too) and Oprah WInfrey wins the Emmy. My guess at the moment.February 24, 2017 at 1:22 am #1202020358

The scenario I am seeing is close to this. Lange and Sarandon can’t win because there would be too much of a vote split. I’m seeing one of the women getting a nomination, and vote splitting pushing the other two out. Coon is the pick for me, as she is also in The Leftovers, and having two shows doesn’t hurt, as Alicia Vikander proved last year at the Oscars.February 24, 2017 at 1:42 am #1202020369
Sarandon is overdue for a Golden Globes and an Emmy so she might win any of these.February 24, 2017 at 7:13 am #1202020541
I can’t imagine how either of these two overcomes vote splitting. I don’t see them winning this.February 24, 2017 at 7:27 am #1202020562
Not sure I entirely buy the vote-splitting argument here. Jessica Lange was able to beat Drew Barrymore, Laura Linney defeat Gena Rowlands, etc. For the finest in film reviews and awards analysis, please visit me at The Awards Connection!
wasnt that on the preferential ballot. We have the popular vote now which screwed with things last year when it comes to vote splitting.February 24, 2017 at 7:28 am #1202020563
If both get raves, there could be the consensus that Sarandon has never won an Emmy, and some will also think Sarandon deserves a “Renaissance” of sorts, too. This could further her winning, not necessarily splitting votes, or other factors.February 24, 2017 at 7:29 am #1202020565
I would love it if Adina Porter snuck in and won due to vote splitting from Big Little Lies and Feud ladies. She is in supporting now but I am assuming that’ll change.February 24, 2017 at 1:07 pm #1202020875
Ballots were ranked back then, so vote-splitting was not a factor. Voters now only get one vote per category.
Carrie Coon is winning.February 24, 2017 at 1:09 pm #1202020877
Neither, Carrie Coon for Fargo. We all know she’s going to be the best in the category.
