TV picks for Sunday, March 4

WATCH THIS:

The 90th Academy Awards (5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET Sunday, ABC): Yes, it’s true: A movie about some kind of freaky man-fish — “The Shape of Water” — leads everyone with 13 nominations and could swim away with Hollywood’s biggest prize. As for our host, Jimmy Kimmel returns to center stage, hoping to avoid a repeat of last year’s best-picture envelope fiasco. Performers include Gael García Bernal, Mary J. Blige, Andra Day, Natalia Lafourcade, Miguel, Keala Settle, Sufjan Stevens and Common.

“Scandalous” (8 p.m., Fox News Channel): The season finale of this retrospective series delves into the impeachment trial of then-President Bill Clinton. Taking place in 1998 to present day, the program draws upon U.S. senators who filled the role of jurors in the first impeachment trial since former President Andrew Johnson in 1868 and shows the voting results in the acquittal of Clinton. Also included: Comments from the key Beltway figures who were present at the time to discuss how their lives were affected.

“The Walking Dead” (9 p.m., AMC): We’re still mourning the death of Carl, but apparently the show must go on. This week in “The Lost and the Plunderers,” groups unite their forces and converge on the Hilltop. Meanwhile, Aaron and Enid search for allies. Simon takes matters into his own hands.

“Keeping Up With the Kardashians” (9 p.m., E!): In the season finale, the girls take one last sister getaway to San Francisco before their babies arrive, but they quickly get fed up with Kourtney’s bad attitude. Meanwhile, Kim wants to include her family in the surrogacy process and Khloé anxiously awaits the news of her baby’s gender.

“Divorce” (10 p.m., HBO): In the Season 2 finale, Robert and Jackie move toward a new step in their real-estate business. Frances faces the fallout of a successful opening at her gallery, and enlists Robert’s help with a home-repair project. A returned favor from Frances sets Diane on a bender, which comes back to haunt her at another eventful party.

STREAM THIS:

“The Good Fight” (CBS All Access): As the 13-episode second season of the legal spin-off series begins, Diane, Lucca and Maia find themselves under psychological assault when a client at another firm kills his lawyer for overcharging. After a copycat murder, they begin to look at their own clients suspiciously. Meanwhile, Diane battles with a new partner at the firm, Liz Reddick-Lawrence (Audra McDonald); Maia becomes tougher after her parents’ scandal puts her on trial; and Lucca is brought back into Colin’s orbit.
