    True. We both have the same nominees, but different winners in some categories.

    Speaking of the ’73 Oscars, I legit just put up a few minutes ago a new blog post on “The Way We Were” and its victory in Best Original Song this year.

    So glad you mentioned Soylent Green. That film holds up well today…perhaps even more so. The film may have opened later in the year, but Edward G Robinson absolutely slayed me.
    Hey, wanna share some Green biscuits Teri?

    Exorcist, Jack Nicholson, Ellen Burstyn, Jason Miller, and Tatum. (but Sylvia Sydney was really great too. Her death scene has always kind of haunted me.)

    I’ll never understand how Glenda Jackson won. I mean she had just won 3 years before and pretty much all 4 of the other nominees were better.

    (and John Houseman just had one note and he stuck to it—a memorable character but I’m not sure if that was really much of a “performance”)

    At least Houseman made sense as a winner, given both the dominating nature of his performance and perception as an acting vet due for an Oscar. (Also, I’m not even sure who the runner-up would be in this category.)

    Jackson, on the other hand, had indeed just prevailed and A Touch of Class is pure fluff. To boot, all of her competition was acting at the very top of their game. Something about that picture just resonated with the Academy, though – if it could garner a nod in the top category, no wonder Jackson could pull off the win. But it’s still a real head-scratcher, particularly once you’ve watched the performance which, while a charmer, seems way too slight to be a Best Actress winner. Perhaps Jackson being the one non-American in the line-up helped?
