The town is abuzz that Bette was nominated for another Best Actress Oscar, while Joan was not. The situation makes the relationship between the two women even more strained. Bette, who in many quarters is considered the front-runner which if she does win would make her the first person to win three Best Actress Oscars, openly admits that she desperately wants to win to resurrect her movie career. She also calls her good friend Olivia de Havilland in Paris to attend the ceremony with her to show the world that she does have the support of her peers, Livvie who can relate in her own publicly known mutual dislike of her acting sister, Joan Fontaine. Joan, on the other hand, is livid that she was not nominated while Bette was.

Some great moments . . . but (spoiler!)
7 April 2017 | by mabbott10See all my reviews

I read about this episode years ago and, was looking forward to this episode. Overall, it covered the high points but, like most of this mini-series, suffers from miscasting and Murphy's tendency towards overall cheesiness. I will say that the ending (spoiler) where a wounded Davis is surrounded by consoling friends while Crawford goes home to an empty house, was poignant. I think Sarandon, Tucci and Molina have been stellar throughout the series. I still have problems seeing Lange as Crawford, and Sarah Paulson (a favorite of mine) and Serinda Swan are all wrong as Geraldine Page and Anne Bancroft. What they did get right - Crawford gently scolding a young Patty Duke for her breach of propriety, her Oscar prep and traveling party, and Rubeistein's appearance as George Cukor. Overall, a decent series that should have been great.
