Topliners from the same series competing against each other is nothing new (see: Cagney & Lacey, The Golden Girls), and this year three pairs are in this situation: Feud's Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon and Big Little Lies' Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman are competing in the limited series/TV movie category, while Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin — best friends in Grace & Frankie — are going toe to toe in the comedy series race.
