Watch Steven Spielberg's Adorable Reactions To The '76 Oscar Nominations

What happens when a young Spielberg anxiously learns how Jaws faired with Academy Award nominations? Hilarity. And outrage.

Posted on

Jaws is nominated for Best Picture. Everyone cheers! Yay!!!

Jaws also gets nominated for Best Original Score, Best Sound Mixing, and Best Film Editing. It goes on to win in those three categories. It loses out, however, to One Flew Over the Cukoo's Nest for Best Picture. But c'mon...this was, like, THE BIGGEST MOVIE EVER.


Spielberg's two extremely animated friends have lots to say on Spielberg's exclusion from the Best Director category.

This guy wants you to know that a) he was in The Godfather and b) it's bullshit to have a movie win Best Picture if the director is not also nominated. Bullshit!
