YMMV: Midnight Cowboy

  • Adaptation Displacement
  • Award Snub: Both Dustin Hoffman and Jon Voight were nominated for Best Actor, only to lose to John Wayne (True Grit). The film still won Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay, though. And Sylvia Miles was nominated Best Supporting Actress.
    • In the film, there's a scene where Voight speaks admiringly of John Wayne. Oh, the irony...
  • Awesome Music: The titular song "Midnight Cowboy" by composer John Barry. It's touching all by itself.
    • And, of course, Nilsson's "Everybody's Talkin'".
  • Ho Yay: Rizzo and Joe Buck.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Cass.
  • Tear Jerker
