    Burns got the Oscar, but did he have the performance to justify it? And who else wishes Robert Shaw could have been a contender for Jaws?

    It’s between Burns and Warden for me with Dourif on a solid third place. I’m voting for Burns i guess…

    Robert Shaw not getting any traction for Jaws remains one of my most upsetting memories.

    1. Robert Shaw, Jaws
    2. John Cazale, Dog Day Afternoon 

    wait a minute…awww start over:

    1. Burgess Meredith – perfect little gem of a performance of a retired vaudevilian (tragic version)
    2. George Burns – perfect little gem of a performance of a retired vaudevilian (comic version)
    3. Brad Dourif
    4. Jack Warden
    5. Chris Sarandon

    Despite the silliness of ignoring Shaw & Cazale this is a pretty good lineup.

    Wow, a lot of missed opportunities that year.  My top 3 would probably be:

    1.  Henry Gibson (“Nashville”)
    2.  Robert Shaw (“Jaws”)
    3.  John Cazale (“Dog Day Afternoon”)

    His costar, Karen Black, gave a jarring but unforgettable perf as well.

    “Jeepers, creepers. where’d you get them peepers…”
    She only had a cameo in Nashville,but the line she delivered is so hilarious.

    Ps to Helmetz: Nashville, is still one of my favorite films.

    Robert Shaw not getting in is laughable. John Cazale not getting in is also laughable. Henry Gibson…once again, laughable.

    George Burns’ win is an early case of sentiment carrying a veteran over to a win PLUS a co-lead having an advantage in Supporting.

    Honestly, I would give this to Brad Dourif. While I am part of the group that thinks Cuckoo’s Nest is somewhat overrated, he remains the aspect (or at least one of the few) that I still think about quite often. His last tragic scene was the clincher for me. Burgess Meredith isn’t far behind.
