Classic Film Guide

Annie Hall (1977)

Inexplicably, this relationship film about two neurotic people in love beat Star Wars (1977) for Best Picture. Director Woody Allen (who also received his only acting nomination) beat George Lucas and Steven Spielberg (Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977)), his first nomination, as well. His co-star, and girlfriend at the time, Diane Keaton also won her only Oscar (Best Actress) and doesn't seem to want to let go of her title character's dated wardrobe either. Allen also won the Screenplay Writing Oscar. The Turning Point (1977) received 11 nominations without winning a single Oscar. Added to the National Film Registry in 1992. #31 on AFI's 100 Greatest Movies list. #4 on AFI's 100 Funniest Movies list. #11 on AFI's 100 Greatest Love Stories list. "Seems Like Old Times" is #90 on AFI's 100 Top Movie Songs of All Time. Keaton's attitude-related utterance "La-dee-da, la-dee-da." is #55 on AFI's 100 Greatest Movie Quotes list.
