    We’ve discussed Best Actress a lot. Glenda Jackson seemed the least likely of all the nominees but she did.

    What about Best Actor? Was Pacino the favorite?

    How about Supporting Actress. I’m guessing Sylvia Sydney was the favorite. People seem really shocked when Tatum wins.

    John Houseman was the clear frontrunner for Supporting Actor having won the Golden Globe and National Board of Review.

    She was indeed. Linda’s chances were hurt because of the Exorcist’s controversy plus Mercedes McCambridge expose’.

    That year Glenda and Tatum were considered as a surprise winners. You can tell from the reaction of the audience especially the other nominees.

    I also read that George Cukor threatened the Academy that he will resign if Exorcist win Best Picture. I dunno much the other details but that’s what I read.
