1980 Academy Awards – An Introduction

53rd Academy Awards.jpg

The 53rd Academy Awards saw Johnny Carson leading the proceedings once again and featured Ordinary People picking up the most wins, with The Elephant Man, Raging Bull, and The Coal Miner’s Daughter and others earning high numbers of nominations. This year saw many interesting movies in multiple genres being awarded or nominated, and of course many others not appearing at all. As we proceed into the 80s we’ll be getting into the territory of the films I know and love most and as such the number of films which would never get nominated in a million years in the real world, will be nominated by me. Exciting!

Willie Nelson and Dolly Parton were some of the performers this year, while Lilian Gish, Peter Ustinov, Luciano Pavarotti, and Sigourney Weaver were some of those handing out the awards. Henry Fonda got an Honorary Award, as did the Special Effects team who worked on The Empire Strikes Back.

Join us over the next few weeks to see which films I nominated and awarded, and feel free to add your thoughts and picks!
