For the first time, none of the Best Actress nominees had starred in a Hollywood production. Louise Fletcher was in the independently produced One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975), Isabelle Adjani was in the French film The Story of Adele H (1975), Ann-Margret was in Tommy (1975) produced in England, Glenda Jackson was in Hedda (1975) produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company, and Carole Kane was in the independently produced Hester Street (1975).

Although 'Glenda Jackson' was a Best Actress nominee for her work in Hedda (1975), she could not vote because she forgot to pay the $50 annual dues and had her ballot revoked.

Quotes
George Burns: [on winning the Oscar] After this I think I'll start taking some of those gentile roles, become the next Robert Redford.

Milos Forman: I've been told by many people that the Academy is patriotic, chauvinistic and does not like to give awards to foreigners. It's nice to know it isn't so.

Jack Nicholson: [receiving the Best Actor award for "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest"] I guess this proves that there are just as many nuts in the academy as anywhere else.
