I don't really have any good advice for you but I'm so sorry that she's behaving so poorly. It's so sad when adults let their personal feelings and grudges be taken out on innocent children, since in the grand scheme of things it is your son who is missing out on a relationship with his grandmother. I can't imagine how painful that must be, especially when he's watching his sister and cousins be showered with attention.

Unless she changes her attitude there isn't really anything you can do. His grandma is ignoring him and that is going to hurt him no matter what. The only thing I can suggest doing is doing what you can to show him love and value from you, from his father and from the rest of the family.

It might be at a point where I would consider distancing yourselves as a family from her, since it sounds like she causes not only you and your son but your husband a lot of hurt and frustration. My only concern with that would be what it would mean for your stepdaughter, who does have a relationship with her, and for what it could mean for your family if the rest of your family isn't holding your mil accountable (in other words, would avoiding her mean losing time with the rest of the family who does treat you well?).

Definitely doesn't sound like an easy situation. I'm so sorry you're dealing with this.
