Annie Academy Award Nomination! Academy Award Nomination! 

By Tom Keogh

Charmless and dull, this adaptation of the Broadway hit stars Aileen Quinn as the depression-era moppet, Albert Finney as Daddy Warbucks, Carol Burnett as the cruel headmistress at an orphanage, and Tim Curry as a villain. The film never gets its legs, and there is no sense of setting; it's almost as if the whole thing is happening in a void. John Huston nominally directed--no doubt to make money between his smaller, cheaper masterpieces--but one would have thought he would invest something of himself in here.

Academy Awards

Annie received Academy Awards nominations for Art Direction/Set Decoration (Dale Hennesy - Art Direction, Marvin March - Set Decoration) and Music Scoring Awards (Best Original Score and Its Adaptation or Adaptation Score: Ralph Burns - Adaptation Score).
