Award Snub: One of the many moments Peter O'Toole lost the Best Actor award.
Perhaps the most egregious case of this too. Whereas other years had O'Toole losing to performances that would go on to be quite iconic, like Marlon Brando in The Godfather, Robert De Niro in Raging Bull, and Gregory Peck in To Kill a Mockingbird, this had him losing to Cliff Robertson in Charly. While a great actor, Robertson made for a shocking winner, given the lack of love for his film and the fact that O'Toole had actually managed to win the Golden Globe beforehand.
The film itself lost out on the Best Picture award to Oliver!, which was yet another of the big, plush (yet ultimately pretty forgettable) musical adaptations that Academy voters were obsessed with in The Sixties.
Crowning Moment of Funny: It builds up slowly but the scene in Philip's room involving increasing numbers of people behind tapestries is so absurd it's hilarious. But that's what tapestries are for.
