YMMV: Crimes and Misdemeanors

  • Award Category Fraud: Martin Landau, despite being the main character of one of the film's two subplots, was nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the Academy Awards.
  • Award Snub: Along with the above category fraud, there was also its failure to earn a Best Picture nomination, despite receiving recognition in the Director and Screenplay categories (each of which it lost).
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: It's now quite bizarre seeing Lennie Briscoe unhesitatingly suggest his brother murder someone.
  • Moral Event Horizon: When Judah decides to have his mistress murdered.
