The 1975 Critics Consensus Awards


Barbara Harris and Robert DoQui in Nashville

Robert Altman's magnum opus Nashville may not have swept up at the Academy Awards in 1975, but it pulled off quite the feat in my Critics Consensus Awards for the year. A new record haul of four (and second placements in Supporting Actress and Screenplay), enough to ensure that this is the first CCA frame with fewer than five winners across the seven categories. It was a rather different story with the Oscars, where One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest matched a record of its own, winning the 'Big Five', only one of which it could translate into a win with the critical community. And you'll notice, following a major break from Oscar the year prior, that again there's a non-Oscar nominated winner among the crop in the form of Supporting Actor award recipient Henry Gibson. Check it all out below.
