Oscar Context

In 1975, Milos Forman's “One Flew Over the Cuckoko's Nest” swept most of the Oscars, including Picture, Director, Actor Jack Nicholson, and Actress Louise Fletcher, who initially was cast in the role that Lily Tomlin played, based on her deaf parents; Fletcher was fired by Altman in a well-publicized case.
