Awards Chatter Pod: Calista Flockhart on ‘Feud’ TV Return, Ally McBeal

Calista Flockhart, our guest on this episode of The Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter podcast, is a TV legend. The actress shot to fame 27 years ago playing a Harvard Law graduate who goes to work in a Boston firm on David E. Kelley’s groundbreaking Fox comedy series Ally McBeal (1997-2002), for which she garnered three Emmy noms and won a Golden Globe. She subsequently starred on other notable shows including ABC’s Brothers & Sisters (2006-2011) and CBS/The CW’s Supergirl (2015-2018). Most recently, on the 2024 FX limited series Feud: Capote vs. The Swans, she played Lee Radziwill, the socialite sister of Jackie Kennedy and, for a time, close friend of Truman Capote — and now finds herself back in the Emmys race.

Over the course of this episode, the 59-year-old reflects on the sequence of unlikely events that led to her being pulled out of relative obscurity and landing the role of Ally McBeal; the degree to which sudden fame and paparazzi scrutiny jolted her life and affected her psyche; what it was about Capote vs. the Swans that lured her out of semi-retirement at home with her husband of 14 years, Harrison Ford (who she, in turn, helped to convince to do AppleTV+’s Shrinking); plus much more.
