The Oscar Quest: Best Actor – 1977

Oh, 1977. Annie Hall beats Star Wars. Isn’t that cute?

I really have no opinion on this year. I hate Woody Allen films and I hate what Star Wars has become. I mean, it clearly should have won Best Picture over Annie Hall, because it’s just superior in every way (except neurotic Jewish people. But — C-3PO…almost). Woody Allen should not have won Best Director over George Lucas (talked about here), either. Diane Keaton should have won Best Actress, though (talked about here), only she should have won it for Looking for Mr. Goodbar instead.

Best Supporting Actor this year was Jason Robards for Julia, which I don’t really care about, as I said here. And Best Supporting Actress was Vanessa Redgrave, also for Julia, which, as I said here, I don’t really care about either.

Which brings us to this category. Well — at least Woody didn’t win. And good thing Richard Dreyfuss did.


And the nominees were…

Woody Allen, Annie Hall

Richard Burton, Equus

Richard Dreyfuss, The Goodbye Girl

Marcello Mastroianni, A Special Day

John Travolta, Saturday Night Fever (more…)
