Neil Posted January 23, 2011 Report Share Posted January 23, 2011 Lucy was nominated for movie work at Golden Globes (but never won) for "Facts of Life", "Yours Mine Ours" and "Mame". I'm assuming she would have gotten a nomination for "Long Trailer" but could not find a list of nominees. "Facts of Life" was the only movie she made that got that much Oscar -- and other award-- attention. Its only win was for Costume Designer (for a black and white movie) Edith Head. I don't remember the "costumes" as standouts, but good for Edith! It was also nominated for set decoration and cinematography (both in the b/w category), screenplay AND that (IMO!) dreadful title song. Lucy's most prestigious nomination was one of 5 women nominated as Best Actress by the New York Film Critics Awards, which did not divide its awards between comedy and drama. (I remember reading this at one time but can't find a list of nominees for that year). For vague reasons still unexplained, the movie was withheld from television except for one network showing so I didn't see it until the late 90s. Given all these award nominations, I was surprised it was such a trifling. Enjoyable but it could have just as easily been a TV presentation. I guess my expectations were too high. With the nominations, especially that one from NY Critics, I was expecting greatness. I think her performance in "Critics Choice" is better, but the failure of the movie meant no nominations for anybody. (Don't know why I posted this. I saw the thread about Lucy's Emmy nominations and thought of this.) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
