I would have gone with Liv Ullmann over Cicely Tyson, but that's hardly controversy. A great group of winners.

One of the great things about following the Oscar eligibility on my own years is that I don't have to put Godfather and Cries and Whispers in the same year, although, conveniently, they dominate different categories (Actress, Sup Actress, Original Screenplay for Cries, Actor, Sup Actor, Adapted Screenplay for Godfather).

Liv Ullmann had a stretch in the 70s when she could have won it nearly every year -- The Immigrants, Cries and Whispers, Scenes from a Marriage, Face to Face, Autumn Sonata. So, of course, she won none. I think if the Academy hadn't rather arbitrarily declared Scenes From A Marriage ineligible, she would have won for that.

Ah, well.
