Annie Hall ranked # 31 on the American Film Institute's Top 100 American Films list.
Annie Hall is a 1977 romantic comedy film directed by Woody Allen from a script he co-wrote with Marshall Brickman. Allen's working title for the film was Anhedonia, but this was considered unmarketable. Brickman's suggested alternative, It Had to Be Jew, was considered even less marketable, and ultimately Annie Hall was settled upon as the release title.
Because of biographical similarities with Alvy, including Allen's previous relationship with co-star Diane Keaton (real name Diane Hall), Annie Hall has been widely assumed to be semi-autobiographical, but Allen has denied this.
The film won the following Academy Awards:
- Best Actress in a Leading Role - Diane Keaton
- Best Director - Woody Allen
- Best Picture - Charles H. Joffe
- Best Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen - Woody
- Allen and Marshall Brickman
It was also nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role - Woody Allen.
