Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Funny Girl
Award Snub: Averted. Barbra Streisand's incredible breakout performance was competing for the Oscar against the established Katharine Hepburn's crowning achievement in The Lion in Winter. They tied for the award.
Hollywood Homely: Barbra Streisand is supposed to be plain? (Not that she didn't have her early detractors.)
Values Dissonance: Fanny's friends, and even her own mother, criticize her for Nicky's financial ruin, going so far as to blame her when he gets busted in a bonds scam. Why? Because Fanny not only dared to earn the money in the family, but she attempted to help her husband out financially when she should have been focused on helping him emotionally.
