    I was actually just thinking about his the other day.  I would like to have seen Keenan Wynn nominated for Nashville.

    I haven’t seen enough of the nominees in all the categories for this year to really judge their merit. I also haven’t seen much outside the nominees so I’ll stick to ranking the nominees that I can. I’ve seen the BP nominees and would rank them:

    1. Dog Day Afternoon
    2. Nashville
    3. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
    4. Jaws
    5. Barry Lyndon

    I appreciated all these films, though I think Barry Lyndon is Kubrick’s worst film (not saying it’s bad, but everything else he did is better)

    I’ve seen the directors too, and would rank them

    1. Robert Altman, Nashville 
    2. Sidney Lumet, Dog Day Afternoon
    3. Federico Fellini, Amarcord
    4. Milos Forman, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
    5. Stanley Kubrick, Barry Lyndon

    It is astounding to me that this category managed to include 4 directors that ended up being tragically overdue for Oscars, but none of which got the directing Oscar they deserved. Then there’s Forman who would win again in a few years. Lumet is one of my personal favourites, and should have won for Network. Fellini should have won for 8 1/2, Kubrick should have won for Dr. Strangelove, and Altman should have won here. Let Forman have his win for Amadeus, which was not only a weaker lineup, but also a better film.

    Finally, I’d just like to give a quick shout out to the one true snub of this year that I know of, which is Tim Curry in Rocky Horror. I don’t know if the 3 nominees I haven’t seen for Best Actor would be deserving, or if he could have somehow been considered supporting (which would be hilarious, but not totally wrong), but his is one of my favourite performances of any actor in any film I’ve ever seen. What a guy… Makes me cry… and I did.

    Best Actor

    Kurt Raab for Satan’s Brew

     Best Supporting Actor:

    Volker Spengler for Satan’s Brew

    Best Supporting Actress: 

    Helen Vita for Satan’s Brew

    Aunt Peg, Satan’s Brew was actually released in Germany in 1976 and in the U.S. in 1977…

    I have actually never seen The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum ): Would love to – also, The Stepford Wives ): But I’ve seen very other film mentioned in this thread! (:

    the only movie I cheated with was Let Joy Reign Supreme; I don’t think it was released in the U.S. in 1975 ): But I love the movie so much I included it anyway! It’s amazing how mature Bertrand Tavernier was so early on (it was his second film – his first was the superb The Clockmaker!)

    Yes, I should have mentioned that I base my selections on the year of release in country of origin.
