Oscars ’76: Watch Steven Spielberg watch himself get snubbed

Back in 1976, Steven Spielberg made a little movie called JAWS. Years later it would be regarded as the first true Summer Blockbuster and Spielberg himself was seen as pulling off one of the greatest directing achievements ever. Despite the fact that the robotic shark didn’t work for about, oh, let’s say 90% of filming? Spielberg still managed to fill the film with intensity and moments of sheer terror. After pulling off this amazing achievement, Spielberg decided it would be a great idea to film his reaction to the Oscar nominations that year…. This Oscar snub video is still 100 times better than A.I.
