1972 Revisit: Awards Darlings

by Nathaniel R

Before the '72 Smackdown THIS SUNDAY (have you voted yet?) we thought it might be fun to look back at how the awards race played out across the big six categories by comparing the Globes,Oscars,亚博主页and various other awards organizations of the time to see what the hottest commodities were.

Where the Globes and Oscar lined up,I've lined them up on the chart belows (obviously the Globes have two wins for Best Picture and Leading Actors do to how they split the categories.) You'll notice that except for Best Actress no categories were closer than a 3/5 match.We wish awards season were that excitingly differentiated now!It's unfortunate that opinions have become so homogenized.As we've said many times,you don't need dozens of groups if they all feel exactly the same way about art.The "other"column is for key wins and nominations that season (if it's a different year for Oscar eligibility we've noted that) that add broader context to what excited people in 1972.

It's a story as old as film,with numerous examples.Some set in the US likeDriving Miss Daisy(1989) and others elsewhere,Cry Freedom(1990),to name just a couple.Davis agrees with that take,telling the NYTimes in a recent interview...
