In the fifth episode of the FX limited series “Feud,” aptly titled “And the Winner Is … (The Oscars of 1963),” bitter rivals Joan Crawford (Jessica Lange) and Bette Davis (Susan Sarandon) go head-to-head at the Oscars. Never mind that Crawford wasn’t even nominated: She manages to steal the night by offering to accept the golden statue on behalf of the other lead actress nominees.
And now Lange and Sarandon find themselves nominated against each other in probably the most competitive category of the year: lead actress in a limited series or TV movie. But don’t draw any parallels to the actresses they played on screen; Lange assures us there are no real-life similarities. “I was so happy the day I saw the nominations and realized the six main actors in the piece were all nominated,” Lange says, referring not only to her and Sarandon, but also their supporting cast of Judy Davis, Jackie Hoffman »

Eva Longoria celebrated her #WCW with a look back at Wisteria Lane!
The actress and businesswoman, 42, posted a photoon Wednesday from her days on the highly popular ABC series Desperate Housewives, shouting out actresses Marcia Cross, Felicity Huffman and Teri Hatcher.
“My woman crush Wednesday are my Dh girls who I miss so much! This pic was around 2005 I think! #TimeFlies #DesperateHousewives.”
The show was on the air for eight seasons and after it ended, Longoria took a much-needed break from TV.
“I hit the lottery with Housewives,” the actress told People in 2015. “But when it was over, I made »

Born on Halloween night (in the Us, although it was already November 1st in Yugoslavia), actor Massimo Dobrovic has shared a link with the horror genre since his birth, and he's strengthened that connection over the years with memorable roles in a wide range of films and TV series.

As two-time winner Margo Martindale was promoted to the supporting actress race for her work on “The Americans,” the category is free to crown a new winner. But it’s still likely to be a previous Emmy winner or nominee. Laverne Cox and Cicely Tyson have all been nominated for their roles here before; look for repeats. Khandi Alexander in particular enjoyed a fantastic turn in the “Scandal” finale, complete with memorable Mama Pope monologues. Carrie Preston has actually won for playing quirky lawyer Elsbeth Tascioni on “The Good Wife,” but now she’s moved to its spinoff “The Good Fight.” If enough voters caught the show on CBS All Access, she should be a lock for a nom. Alison Wright and Kim Dickens could earn their first nominations for their work on “The Americans” and “House of Cards,” shows they’ve been a part of for some time now. New »

By mid-May, the broadcast networks must make some tough calls as to which series will return for the 2017-18 TV season, and which… won’t.
As that deadline draws near, TVLine is singling out a few “bubble” shows and sizing up their prospects — based in large part on creative strides (and stumbles) and future potential, but also with a requisite nod to cold, hard numbers.
Next up is a spy show that has done recon on what its audience does and doesn’t want — but is it too late?

Need to catch up? Check out the previous Quantico recap here.
Remember when Quantico was fun-but-far-fetched? Yeah, those were good times.
There’s a moment in this week’s Quantico where Marcia Cross’ now-President Claire Haas delivers a monologue that Hillary Clinton herself has probably muttered to herself while walking the woods of Chappaqua.
When Shelby asks the former vice president why she isn’t ready to “just do the right thing” in regard to the show’s pressing terrorist problem, Claire replies, “Because I wasn’t elected. America elected a half-as-qualified man with next to no experience, a man »

"Men don't like to admit glass ceilings exist because they are the glass ceiling," explains Madam President Clair Haas (Marcia Cross) of entering the Oval Office by default after the former president stepped down. "It's not getting the job that's going to change the way Americans feel about women; it's what I do with it."
President Haas has been called upon »
