"Annie Hall" is Woody Allen's most critically successful film, as well as one of his most popular. The film won four Academy Awards, including Best Director and Best Original Screenplay for Allen, and Best Picture. Other Allen films that have won Oscars include "Vicki Cristina Barcelona," for which Penelope Cruz won Best Supporting Actress, and "Midnight in Paris," for which Allen won his second Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. As of 2015, "Midnight in Paris" is also Allen's highest-grossing film, earning over $150 million at the box office.

Allen's early films were more straightforward comedies than his later films, and these movies have remained popular as his stature as a filmmaker has grown. These include "Bananas," a satire of banana republics and revolution, and "Sleeper," a sci-fi comedy in which a normal man wakes up hundreds of years in the future. Allen has also directed films that have not seen popular success but have been very successful critically. These films include "Hannah and Her Sisters," "Crimes and Misdemeanors" and "Manhattan," all of which feature Allen's typical blend of drama and comedy.
