Title File 006
Transcript It appears that the race for Oscars is _on once again. What a year of confusion the Academy has to look back upon. Such as in the box office hit "Nashville" all 26 actors are qualifying in the supporting actor or actress category. George Burns in "The Sunshine Boys" has curiously been listed in the supporting actor category. Most film goers will consider him a co star with Walter Matthau rather than supporting him. It can be a shrewd move to drop a sentimental favorite to the supporting race. It appears that in his 40th year, Oscar may be lacking in quality. Most Academy watchers believe that to be true. Now with the year over, all of the Oscar hopefuls have now been presented. The big movie of 1975 was "Jaws". It quickly made all previous box office records obsolete. But even the Universal press agents don't claim it as a work of art. The most notable entries into the race have been "Lucky Lady", "Barry Lyndon", and "The Hindenburg". They have a combined total cost of over $35 million. It's needless to say what the critics reviews have been - more than disappointing. In 1974, "Earthquake", "Towering Inferno", and "Airport 1975" should have been the flops of the year according to the critics. Needless to say that these films were the biggest grossers of the year. Academy voters are very often affected by the critics, whereas the opinion of the critics very seldom affect the box office. All in all, the Academy voters are going to have a tough time this year. The potential field for nominees for best picture appear to be as a be as follows: "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest", "Jaws", "Shampoo", "Dog Day Afternoon" "Special Section", "Tommy",and "The Hindenburg", It looks fairly certain to be the year of the "bird" for Oscar. As far as the individual performances, I'm afraid that the great white shark out performed all others. This was basically from film makers being intent on making films with the emphasis on tricks and stunts. As far as the field of performance, itis~very sparce. In the race for best actor Jack Nicholson leads the way with his superb acting in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest". But Al Pacino's outstanding performance in "Dog Day Afternoon" may give him a close race. The field is large and there are a number of others being considered: Warren Beatty in "Shampoo", Roger Daltry in "Tommy", Ryan O'Neal in "Barry Lyndon", Walter Matthau in "Sunshine Boys", Sean Connery and Michael Caine in "The Man Who Would beKing" Robert Shaw, Roy Scheider, and Richard Dreyfus in "Jaws", George C. Scott in "The Hindenburg" and Richard Roundtree in "Man Friday". What about best actress? A good choice would be Marilyn Bassett in "The Other Side of the Mountain". Glenda Jackson is close behind with a stunning performance in "Hedda". And so the list begins: Liza Minn- elli in "Lucky Lady", Julie Christie, Goldie Hawn, and Lee Grant in ' 'Shampoo'', Barbara Streis - and in "Funny Lady" and Mar- isa Berenson in "Barry Lyndon" As in the past, and with no offense to the ladies, the major lack of quality acting still remains in the best actress categories. It seems that Hollywood just doesn't favor their sex with quality roles. Best direction is pretty much the same as best picture: Milos Foreman, "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest"; Robert Altman, "Nashville"; Stephen Spielberg, "Jaws"; Hal Ashby, "Shampoo" Stanley Kubrick, "Barry Lyndon" John Huston, "The Man Who Would Be King"; and Ingmar Bergman, "The Magic Flute". And so it goes for the year past for Oscar. Whether the critics or the box office influence the Academy voters most remains to be seen. One thing is certain, that statue or gold means more than just an award; it means possibly millions of dollars in re releases over the next few years, not to mention the bidding wars among the television networks. Once again, the race is on. RICHfllOflD UOUOR RIART 1425 Richmond cive hou/ton • texa/ 527-9649 77006 # TRIPLE X NEWS **\ 3816 E. BELKNAP | FT.
