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:
