Once Upon a Time, Scandal and More: Which ABC Show Got the Best New Oscar Night Promo?

With potentially 40 million viewers tuning into Sunday night’s broadcast of the 85th Academy Awards, ABC whipped up some brand-new promos to tout the soon-to-premiere Red Widow as well as familiar fare such as Once Upon a Time and Scandal.

Thanks to, among others, the industrious team over at YouTube.com/TelevisionPromos, here are the spots showcasing the “epic” Once, sexy Scandal, “Fame”-ous Nashville and moody Red Widow (which TVLine premiered over the weekend).

Once Upon a Time

(Kerry Washington spent a whole day shooting this promo, I hear. It has a James Bond-y feel
that complemented the Oscars’ tribute to the spy franchise’s 50th anniversary that led into it,
and aired right before Kerry Washington presented an award)

Red Widow

(This is the full, two-minute-plus version of the Oscars promo)

And here, the new episode of TVLine’s Spoiler Alert! shares scoop on Once Upon a Time
as well as Grey’s Anatomy, plus good news for Castle fans:

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    I love the Scandal promo the best, it was Hott definitely not what i expected but something about it went along with Oscars theme. I loved the James Bond theme and how it lead into Kerry presenting. I like Once upon time next!

    the point of the scandal promo was to attract potentially new people to the show for the little 30 seconds. sex Sells people and i think it worked. I love scandal it was done beautifully
