The 1976 Critics Consensus Awards

Robert Redford in All the President's Men

As with many years in the 1970s, critics were bequeathed an embarrassment of riches for their year-end awards in 1976, but the consensus was clearly around one particular title: Alan J. Pakula's All the President's Men. Of the five movies awarded in this edition of the Critics Consensus Awards, four were Oscar nominees for the year, with the sole exception, Face to Face, making this the fourth consecutive year in which a non-English language performance has won an acting award. And Liv Ullmann joins Jane Fonda and Gene Hackman in receiving a second prize here, with all of the double acting winners so far having done so in Leading categories both times, while Talia Shire becomes the second Supporting Actress winner in three years to have been nominated in Leading at the Oscars for the same performance, after Valerie Perrine in Lenny. Check out all the details below.
