1977 – Musical or Comedy: A Star Is Born

1977 was not a good year for musicals - or comedies, for that matter. But Barbra Streisand’s remake of the Judy Garland classic (which in turn was a remake of the 1937 Janet Gaynor version, which itself was inspired by 1932’s What Price Hollywood) so impressed the Hollywood Foreign Press, they awarded it five Golden Globes including Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy (Kris Kristofferson), Best Actress, Best Song and of course Best Film.
