    Come on, don’t kid yourselves, Crawford wasn’t half the actress Davis was. That isn’t an insult, she was still great.

    They’re all billed in alphabetical order (the two leads too).

    Lange and Sarandon have been switching top billing between episodes

    Really? That’s nice. They’re only doing this kind of billing when they have two equally big stars. They did the same with Hannibal and The Bridge.

    Another stellar episode!! It’s pretty obvious by now that Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange are locks for Emmy nominations, but at this point, this episode proves that Alfred Molina and Jackie Hoffman are probably locks for nominations as well. At this point, if neither of them get nominated, I’ll be genuinely shocked. Depending on who else is submitted in the Limited Series/Movie Supporting Actress category, perhaps Alison Wright could break in there too, as she really shined in this episode as Pauline. If the look of devastation on Pauline’s face when Joan Crawford dismissed her as a nobody and refused to even consider looking at her script doesn’t move even the most stone-hearted Emmy voter, then I don’t know what will.

    The ending of the episode where Mamacita informs Joan Crawford that she didn’t get an Oscar nomination is probably the best scene of the whole series so far. Even though I’m siding with Bette Davis in this whole feud, I couldn’t help but feel chills on my spine when Crawford utters her bloodcurdling scream. Even so, part of me feels Crawford’s snub was justified given the fact that she behaved horribly on set and the fact that she refused to promote the film nationally on a talk show circuit like Bette Davis sent a message to Oscar voters that she didn’t really care about the film and that Davis did.

    Also, did Frank Sinatra’s diva antics in this episode remind anyone else besides me of the diva antics Justin Bieber has become known for? Obviously, Bieber’s talent for singing and acting will NEVER even come close to Sinatra’s, but does anyone else see the similarity in terms of their narcissism and vanity and treating everyone else like garbage?

    Nobody in this show is a lock. Lange is the closest to it, but we have no precursors. We will get the TCA’s but that category is so crowded that nobody on the show will proobly get in. I doubt she will be snubbed but she is not a lock. Sarandon is definatley not a lock. She is extremely controversial and can easily be snubbed due to public perception. Molina is definatley not a lock. Ahmed and Tuturro are way ahead of him and Fargo is a giant so McGregor will also probobly be ahead. Cumberbatch is probobly in front. De Niro will for sure be in front. And he is also competing against Law, Martinez, and more. Davis is probably in. Wright is a long shot. Tucci is also probobly in. But still, several are almost locks, but nobody is a lock.

    Whoever doesn’t think Lange and Sarandon are locks are out of their minds. Tucci and Davis are too. Molina is almost certainly in, but not quite a sure thing, and it’s basically a lock for series as well. Wright, Zeta-Jones, Hoffmann, and even Bates if her role ends up being more than providing exposition will all be competing for a supporting actress spot as well, I bet at least one of them will get it.

    Edit: Forgot Bates was already in for American Horror Story, duh.

    The Night of has a 95 or RT and a 90 on MC. Fargo will probobly be in the 90’s on both. American Crime has a 100 on RT and a 90 on MC. Black Mirror has a 93 on RT and a 82 on MC. The rotten tomato and MC scores aren’t too relevant to the actresses, but if anything, Feuds scores are showed as to why the actress aren’t locks instead of why they are locks.

    Like you said, there’s very little relevance in this.

    yes. I still think they will be nominated but I’m just saying they are not locks. I hate the word lock. La La Land was a lock. All the way was a lock. Jean Smart was a lock. Empire was a lock. Uzo Aduba was a lock. They all had pre cursors going for them. We haven’t even seen precursors for Feud. It is a very strong bet but it is in no way a lock.

    Whoever doesn’t think Lange and Sarandon are locks are out of their minds. Tucci and Davis are too. Molina is almost certainly in, but not quite a sure thing, and it’s basically a lock for series as well. Wright, Zeta-Jones, Hoffmann, and even Bates if her role ends up being more than providing exposition will all be competing for a supporting actress spot as well, I bet at least one of them will get it.

     

    We all know I am out of my mind.

    Empire was a lock.

    I’m still new to the site, but I sure wish I could have been here when people thought a musical drama on network television with only mildly positive reviews was a lock.

    I was sooooo waiting for the “Don’t fuck with me, fellas!!!” line with Joan in the boardroom with the William Morris agents. That would have been everything! The costuming was perfect for that to happen. And when did F[X] become the new HBO with a line like “You’ll shake hands and suck cocks to sell this picture! It’s your fiduciary responsibilty!” I didn’t mention before how vivid Stanley Tucci has been in this throwaway type role. Good for him, indeed.

    it had massive hype, buzz, was the most popular thing in tv, and had support from critics choice. People got swept up in the hype.

    I don’t think there are many locks here. I think Lange is. Voters have definitely showed how much they appreciate and love her. Sarandon technically is a lock too, I think people will see this as a combo and vote for them both equally. I understand politics are a factor nowadays and Sarandon can suffer from that, but as of now, I think she’s easily in. And personally, she should be the winner between the two.

    However the rest of the cast and the series itself are still in danger. People need to put preferences and fanboy attitudes aside and simply realize that Big Little Lies is a thing and Fargo is still coming. Plus American Crime which has done a good job getting actors in.

    As for The Night Of, I loved it, I FUCKING LOVED IT, but regardless of Globe and SAG noms for their leads and what would be a very deserving nomination for Jennie Berlin, this show is old as fuck. O L D. Remember Show Me a Hero. And remember the fact that HBO also has a lot more things to spend money and effort on like BLL and Westworld. I hope it doesn’t happen and it gets everywhere it can, but I wouldn’t be as silly as to put The Night Of as a reason why Feud might fail to get some nods.

    And, yes sometimes Shailene Woodley is the one stealing this show. Most of the time is Witherspoon, but Woodley, specially if put in supporting, will be the show’s easiest acting win.
