    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.

    He’s just updated his list again, and the next five films he’ll be covering after The Exorcist are Cabaret, The Last Picture Show, MASH, Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid, and The Lion in Winter.

    I obviously wasn’t alive in 1973, but I can just imagine what it might’ve been like watching that ceremony unfold. From having seen the telecast’s Wikipedia page and playlist on the Oscars’ YouTube channel, I noticed that Best Director was presented before both screenplay categories. So when Bob Fosse was announced as the winner for Best Director, it must’ve really started to look like Cabaret was about to win Best Picture. Especially given how at that point in the night, The Godfather hadn’t won anything yet. One of the first things Fosse said in his acceptance speech was that “I must say I feel a little like Clint Eastwood that you’re letting me stand up here because Coppola or (Joseph L.) Mankiewicz hasn’t shown up yet.” Then, when Jack Lemmon announced that the award for Best Adapted Screenplay went to The Godfather, Francis Ford Coppola said in his acceptance speech that he became nervous throughout the night that he was never going to get up on stage. Though later in the speech, he kindly congratulated Bob Fosse.

    It’s very interesting how history repeated itself two years ago when La La Land won the most awards of the night in a lot of the same categories as Cabaret. Yet the Best Picture winner, Moonlight, took home only three awards overall, the other two being a male acting category and Best Adapted Screenplay (which was shared by the director and the source material’s originator).

    As for the 1972 Oscar race, I think this was a year where the split between Picture and Director was perfect. The Godfather is definitely the rightful winner while the directorial achievement of Cabaret was actually a lot more impressive (especially from a technical standpoint).

    Here are two interesting side notes about Fiddler on the Roof‘s success at the Oscars:

    When Oswald Morris won Best Cinematography, he was unable to make it to the ceremony. So Norman Jewison had to accept it on his behalf, which also marked the only time Jewison ever got to accept an Oscar.
    FIDDLER ON THE ROOF Wins Best Cinematography: 1972 Oscars

    Also, Best Adapted Score brought John Williams the first of his five Oscar wins.

    I think Bob Fosse’s win was one of the biggest upsets ever but a very deserving win. The fact that Cabaret lost Best Picture but swept up 8 oscars is truly an incredible fear and very deserving. I personally prefer Cabaret from The Godfather at least right now from memory but Cabaret more then had it’s due(not like The Favourite this year, yes I am still angry).

    I wasn’t a fan of M*A*S*H. The story was too meandering and I couldn’t emotionally connect with the characters. Patton EASILY deserved the Best Picture win!! And George C. Scott’s performance is truly one of a kind, and from a historical standpoint, he captures Patton to a tee.

    I’d say there is little doubt that Brokeback Mountain was runner-up to Crash.

    E.T. to Gandhi. La La Land to Moonlight.
