Snubby Awards: 1974 Results/1973 Nominations

So sorry for the lateness. Last Wednesday we had a glitch with the site and I couldn’t post anything; Thursday I took the kids to see Solo; this Wednesday was my busiest workday of the year. But at long last, we can announce the winners from 1974, and continue back to 1973. As previously discussed, Mel Brooks and Francis Ford Coppola had career years, releasing two masterpieces each, so it’s only fitting that they (and their films) virtually sweep the Snubbies.
