As a kid, Ryan Murphy was obsessed with the Academy Awards. Obsessed. And now this Sunday night the culmination of that obsession comes to life as Episode 5 of the eight-part limited FX series Feud : Bette and Joan offers up the most detailed, painstaking recreation of an Oscar show ever filmed. Feud executive producer Murphy chose the famously difficult making of 1962’s horror classic Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? and the legendary feud between Golden Age stars Joan Crawford and Bette Davis to be the first installment of a new anthology series set around famous feuds.
