Video of Steven Spielberg Watching the 1976 Oscar Nominations for JAWS

Steven Spielberg is one of the biggest, most talented, and most respected directors and producers in the film industry. The guy has created some incredible films in his career, but it was his classic movie Jaws that put him on the map and launched his directing career to a whole new level of the Universe. 

Jaws was nominated for four Academy Awards in 1976 including Best Editing, Best Score, Best Sound, and Best Picture. They were hoping for 11. It ended up winning the first three categories, but lost the Best Picture to One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, which is hard to argue with as it's one of my favorite films of all time. 

But here is a video showing us a rare glimpse of the director with his friends, colleagues, and family as he watches the 1976 Academy Award nominations. He seemed pretty disappointed he didn't get the nomination for Best Director. Watch the video and tell us what you think? Should the young Spielberg have been nominated for Best Director? Do you think Jaws should have won Best Picture?
