    After having re-watched both movies this past week*, I would’ve given Best Picture that year to Raging Bull, but I don’t really begrudge Ordinary People winning. In fact, I agree with Joyce that if I had to do a split that year, I’d give Best Picture to Ordinary People and Best Director to Martin Scorsese. However, what I find great about Robert Redford’s win is that you don’t always have to do a big technical film in order for it to be considered a directorial achievement. It’s also what I love about Kramer vs. Kramer winning both Best Picture and Best Director the year before.

    Though one person who definitely thinks Raging Bull should’ve won is Michael Musto (go to 6:11).

    *Sometimes when there is a new episode coming up, I’d like to check out the Best Picture winner and/or runner-up if I’ve never seen it before. Even if I have, I’d like to re-watch them to give myself a more fresh perspective on how I think the Oscar race went in a particular year.

    I think if that Oscar race took place today, we’d probably see a split with Kramer vs. Kramer winning Best Picture and Francis Ford Coppola winning Best Director for Apocalypse Now. Though I love Kramer vs. Kramer, so I’m actually glad that film won Best Picture.

    When the movie was released on Blu-Ray, a review praised it for reminding audiences of the effectiveness of simple storytelling and emotional honesty.

    Apocalypse Now contains the greatest Oscar snub of all time: Marlon Brando for Best Supporting Actor! Shame on the Academy for snubbing such a transcendent performance!

    I must say that it was really hard for me to narrow my favorite episodes down to five. Yet, the ones I’ve selected were There Will Be Blood, The Aviator, Saving Private Ryan, Apollo 13, and Bugsy. I chose these episodes based on how much liked the guests you had, reviews of those films, and conversations of the Oscar races in their respective years.

    My 1970s Predictions:

    1979 – Apocalypse Now
    1978 – Coming Home
    1977 – Star Wars
    1976 – Network
    1975 – Jaws
    1974 – Chinatown
    1973 – The Exorcist
    1972 – Cabaret
    1971 – The Last Picture Show
    1970 – MASH

    Kevin has recently updated his master list on Letterboxd, which includes the first five films he’ll be covering on season three.
    https://letterboxd.com/kevinjacobsen/list/and-the-runner-up-is-master-list/

    They are Star Wars, Network, Dog Day Afternoon, Chinatown, and The Exorcist. 1975 was the only year you got wrong. Though if you take a look at my predictions, I was spot on.
