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 9:09 pm #1202061669This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.April 9, 2017 at 10:07 pm #1202061708This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.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 #1202061858This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.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 #1202062152This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.April 10, 2017 at 8:03 am #1202062163This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.April 10, 2017 at 8:11 am #1202062180
If I recall only one episode was pretty balanced between both ladies and that was Episode 2. Episode 3 was the only one to have Bette more at the center due to B.D.’s subplot (she’s gone now, isn’t she?). Episodes 1, 4 and 5 clearly gave more screentime to Lange and this most recent one is the most unbalanced in that case as I don’t think Susan Sarandon comes up until 20 minutes pass and she doesn’t have a scene without Lange or Molina. It’s not really fair but I guess Crawford’s perspective might be more interesting to creators. Davis had “Dead Ringer” at the time which was mentioned somewhere in the series and it would be worth revisiting.
That being said all pre-credits “Strait-Jacket” madness was hysterical. Hal and Joan’s stag film was my least favorite subplot so far, though, especially as we could have had this time with Davis. Molina and Tucci were amazing together and apart, as always and I like that we’re gonna see “Hush… Hush, Sweet Charlotte” troublesome production. If I recall watching the documentary Davis was totally BOSSING everyone else during reading of the script and didn’t have to walk out.
Everything involving “Strait-Jacket”!!!!!
Bette talking about Joan accepting Nobel Prize for Mr. King
Aldrich turning tables on Warner
Mamasita’s exasperation and observations (“She’s enjoying this”)
Aldrich confiding in Davis about his divorce and her telling him that his wife is a GREAT LADY!!!!! (huge coming from her)
I liked the actress playing Mrs. Aldrich, she did bring a great humanity and dignity in her small role. Aldrich’s daughter took part in production and that should be a character Alison Wright was about to play.
