    My nominations for 1978… Let me preface by saying I will not deny strong sentiment here and there (see “Grease” in best pic lineup) as enjoyment is a major factor. Is it one of the best made films of the year? No, but it’s a strong enough favorite to be included. “Animal House” does not fall under the above though. I think it’s excellent all the way down the line & holds strong sentiment. “La Cage aux Folles” is in there bc it was released in 1978. I don’t follow the LA county thing. Best actress lines up perfectly with the Academy. I think that may be the only time, or one of a few, that ever happened. Yes my winner there could easily be supporting. I prefer her in lead.

    Picture:
    Animal House *
    La Cage aux Folles
    Grease
    Interiors
    Midnight Express

    Director:
    Woody Allen, “Interiors”
    John Carpenter, “Halloween”
    John Landis, “Animal House” *
    Alan Parker, “Midnight Express”
    Claudia Weill, “Girlfriends”

    Leading Actress:
    Ingrid Bergman, “Autumn Sonata”
    Ellen Burstyn, “Same Time, Next Year”
    Jill Clayburgh, “An Unmarried Woman”
    Jane Fonda, “Coming Home”
    Geraldine Page, “Interiors” *

    Leading Actor:
    Robert DeNiro, “The Deer Hunter”
    Anthony Hopkins, “Magic”
    Harvey Keitel, “Fingers”
    Peter Ustinov, “Death On the Nile”
    Jon Voight, “Coming Home” *

    Supporting Actress:
    Stockard Channing, “Grease”
    Ruth Gordon, “Every Which Way But Loose”
    Angela Lansbury, “Death On the Nile”
    Maggie Smith, “California Suite” *
    Maureen Stapelton, “Interiors”

    Supporting Actor:
    John Belushi, “Animal House”
    John Hurt, “Midnight Express”
    Harry Dean Stanton, “Straight Time” *
    John Vernon, “Animal House”
    Christopher Walken, “The Deer Hunter”

    Gordon in supporting actress for sure falls under the enjoyment/sentiment category. The movie is bad, but she brings me such great joy in this I can’t deny her. I love Meryl Streep, but I didn’t fall under her usual spell in “The Deer Hunter” even though she does a good job. As a matter of fact I don’t care for the film in general with the exception of a few of the performances.

    My choices:
    Picture – Coming Home
    Actor: Jon Voight, Coming Home
    Actress: Jane Fonda, Coming Home
    Supporting Actress: Maggie Smith, California Suite
    Supporting Actor: Christopher Walken, The Deer Hunter
    Director: Hal Ashby, Coming Home

    I also think “Coming Home” has the best musical soundtrack of any movie ever…..”American Graffiti” comes close though. They must have spent big bucks to get songs by the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Simon & Garfunkel, The Doors, etc.

    Seriously?

    Yep, all of it one hundred percent. It’s not just about what everybody else deems important because that’s boring. I like to mix it up when I can and include what’s enjoyable here and there, even if flawed. I can’t be bothered with perfection all of the time. “The Deer Hunter” is not perfection & is plenty overrated IMO. I’m not saying “The Deer Hunter” has to be enjoyable, I just don’t think it’s as well put together as so many others do. I like “Grease” better so what, it’s infinitely more re-watchable. I respect your opinion on it though, unfortunately it’s not my own. I actually own a copy, bought to give it another try after so many years. I’ll put it in again tonight.
