The 1984 Critics Consensus Awards



Not that anyone's paying attention, after today's Oscar nominations announcement, but I've got a series to continue! The 1984 Critics Consensus Awards took the opportunity to honour a legend whose lengthy heyday subsided just before these awards began: David Lean. His grand return to filmmaking, A Passage to India, wins Best Picture, Director and Supporting Actress, beating Oscar champion Amadeus, which wins Best Screenplay. Perennial Oscar bridesmaid Albert Finney wins Best Actor for Under the Volcano, and Vanessa Redgrave makes for three British acting winners in the same frame. All the year's winners below.
