Most Over-Nominated Film in Oscar History?
Things must have been different in 1977. This film got 11 Oscar nominations and 3 wins. Some of these nominations were best film ... best actress (Fonda) ... best supporting actress (Redgrave) ... best supporting actor (Schell) ... Best supporting actor (Robards)... best director ... best cinematography.
I just watched this film for the first time ... 38 years later ... and thought it very pedestrian. Surely the buddy system came into play here.
