    “The Deer Hunter,” Michael Cimino, Gary Busey (!), Jill Clayburgh, Jack Warden and Maureen Stapleton.

    Though, in my dream world, “Halloween” and John Carpenter would’ve triumphed.

    Why’d Jane Fonda beat Jill Clayburgh? I always found Fonda a little tense in Coming Home. (thought she was excelent and totally deserving in Klute though)

    Days of Heaven should have won Best Picture, Director, Art Direction, Editing and Sound as well as Cinematography. And maybe even Costumes and Original Score.

    Ingrid Bergman deserved to win her final Oscar for perhaps her career-best performance in Autumn Sonata (why did she need to win in 1974?) but her unnominated co-star Liv Ullmann was just as deserving. I’d have been happy with a Jill Clayburgh win though.

    The Academy just really, really liked “Coming Home,” in spite of “The Deer Hunter” ultimately taking the top two prizes. While Clayburgh was hot at the time, it was really Paul Mazurky’s screenplay that garnered the raves for that picture. Bergman was the critics’ favorite by far, but winning a fourth Oscar, for a foreign film to boot, wasn’t highly likely. Burstyn and Page didn’t have a prayer.

    I have always suspected that Jane Fonda won the contested prize in large part to the voters’ appreciation for Fonda’s successful effort to open her own production company that developed film projects supporting her political views. The initial offering, Coming Home, hit it out off the park which subsequently generated great respect in Hollywood circles. Since the film wasn’t winning Best Picture over the favored The Deer Hunter, awarding Fonda Best Actress was a salute to her achievement.

    Really it’s not much different than the ceremony where Jessica Lange won Best Supporting Actress for Tootsie when she wasn’t going to win Best Actress for Frances over Meryl Streep in Sophie’s Choice

    or the ceremony where George Clooney won Best Supporting Actor for Syriana when he wasn’t going Best Director for Good Night and Good Luck

    and so on . . .
