The 1973 Longlists!

All right, you late-night fans of cinema and the Silver Screening Room. Here it is: the long-awaited (?) longlists for the 1973 Retro Hollmann Awards!

As mentioned earlier, I saw 64 films, 24 of which were nominated for Academy Awards. Of those 64, 54 are named here. I play by the old-school BAFTA rules, where there are 15 finalists in each of my 18 categories; the one exception is Visual Effects, which only has 10.

I love doing longlists. They help me gather my thoughts, and they invite speculation and conversation. Broken record, I know, but: I miss the BAFTA ones! They were always good for a surprise or three.

Anyway, herewith are mine:

American Graffiti
Cries and Whispers
The Day of the Dolphin 
The Day of the Jackal
Electra Glide in Blue
The Exorcist
Goodbye, Uncle Tom
Jesus Christ Superstar
The Last Detail
The Last of Sheila
