Thank God It's Friday Academy Award Winner! 

By Tom Keogh

This 1978 throwaway comedy is an episodic affair obviously inspired by American Graffiti and its multiple-story-line structure. Set during a single night at a disco, there are some nine distinctive, character-driven plots going on, including one featuring Donna Summer as an up-and-coming singer trying to get the club deejay to play her record. Jeff Goldblum and Debra Winger are in the mix, too, and while no one's trying to make history with this film, it is funnier and fresher than most reviewers gave it credit for being.

Academy Awards

Thank God It's Friday received an Academy Award for Music Best Song (Paul Jabara - Music & Lyrics).
