YMMV / Almost Famous

  • Award Snub: Despite the acclaim it received (including a special citation as Roger Ebert's favorite film of 2000), the movie failed to receive a Best Picture nomination. Particularly notable as it still managed to win an Oscar for its Screenplay over Erin Brockovich and Gladiator, which were both actual BP nominees that year (and in the case of the latter, the eventual winner).
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: All of it.
  • Face of the Band: Lampshaded, much to the chagrin of the band.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Philip Seymour Hoffman playing Lester Bangs. Both men died of drug overdoses.
