Oscar Context

Though he didn't atten the Oscar telecast, Woody Allen became something of a national hero when the film won four Academy Awards.

These included the Oscars for best picture, best director, and best screenplay. Diane Keaton also won the best actress award for her role. Woody Allen was nominated for best actor, but did not win; the winner was Richard Dreyfuss for the Neil Simon's comedy, “The Goodbye Girl.”

The Best Picture competition in 1977 was rather weak: “Annie Hall” vied for the top award with theatrical comedy “The Goodbye Girl,” Zinnemann's period melodrama “Julia,” George Lucas's sci-fi blockbuster “Star Wars,” and Herbert Ross ballet drama “The Turning Point.”

Praise for Annie Hall was almost universal: The comedy had previously won the National Society of Film Critics, the New York Film Critics Circle, and the Golden Globe awards.
