J THURSDAY, APRIL 13, 1989 ENTERTAINMENT PRESS*EPUBLICAN PAGE Jl Osears sure to spark debate about categories By liF F STWCKLER Minneapolis-St. Poul Star Tribune Have the Academy Awards for supporting actor and actress lost their focus? The controversy has grown in recent years, and now is sure to be cranked up another notch in light of the Oscars won by Geena Davis for \The Acciden- tal Tourist\ and Kevin Kline for \A Fish Called Wanda.\ The argument is not about their performances; both were strong. The question is whether they were competing in the pro- per categories. If not, is that fan- to the other competitors? Critics of the nominating system have complained that Davis and Kline had starring roles, not supporting ones. The implication is that because they had much higher visibility in their roles, they had an advan- tage over their less-prominently featured competitors. There have been calls in the past for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to designate supporting and starr- ing roles during the nomination process. So far the academy has resisted, instead providing an open ballot in which voters are free to write down any name in any category they feel is ap- propriate. Before the nominations, the studios bombard the trade press with \for your consideration\ ads that promote people for specific categories. Studio publicists freely admit that they tailor these campaigns to in- crease their studio's chances of winning. In other words, if they think the competition for best actress is too strong for Davis to SPORTSMAN'S LOUNGE Rte. 3 Redford 293-8829 Friday, April 14th \C & W Reviews\ 9P.M.-1 A.M.

One of the longtime standards for determin- ing a supporting role is the amount of time the actor spends on screen. Ensemble casts split up the on-screen time so much that often everyone in the cast can be considered a supporting player. That was the common complaint when both Tom Berenger and Willem Dafoe were nominated from \Platoon\ two years ago and in 1984 when Sam Shepard was nominated for \The Right Stuff and Glenn Close from \The Big Chill.\ Kline falls into this ensemble- actor category. Although \A Fish Called Wanda\ was labeled John Cleese's movie, Cleese wrote a script that spread around the action and the good jokes. As a result, Kline could be considered as much the star as anyone else who was in the movie. While there's precedent for Kline's position, the inclusion of Davis in the supporting categb- ry is hard to reconcile on any grounds. She was billed in the credits below Kathleen Turner, but everyone in Hollywood knows that the order of the cred- its is determined as much by the bargaining power of the actor's agent as the significance of the STEAK IS GREAT THURSDAY NIGHTS 5-9 P.M.

Davis clearly was the female lead. She was on screen much more than Turner. Her character was the one William Hurt's character played off during his metamorphosis. She even got the guy in the happy-ever-after ending; if that's not a designa- tion of a leading lady, what is? NEW YORK (AP) - A high* rated NCAA championship basketball game 'helped CBS come in second in last week's ^Nielsens, but didn't budge NBC from No. 1, even though ABC's \Roseanne\ was the top-rated show of the week. Last year, the NCAA champi- onship game was enough to give CBS a first for J,he week. This year, the game had a somewhat lower rating, but was still in the top 10. According to the A.C. Nielsen Co., the top-rated shows of the week were: \Roseanne\ ABC, \The Cosby Show\ NBC, \Cheers\ NBC, \A Different World\ NBC, \60 Minutes\ CBS, \NCAA Championship - Michigan vs. Seton Hall\ CBS, \Golden Girls\ NBC, \Empty Nest\ NBC, \L.A. Law\ NBC and \Murder She Wrote\ CBS. \Roseanne\ had the highest rating of the week, 23.3, but a lower share, 35, than \Cosby\ with a 38. Each rating point rep- resents 904,000 households with television. The share is a per- centage of sets in use,, NBC said-the \Cosby\ rating was lower because of the switch to daylight saving time affecting shows that are on at the beginn- ing of prime-time when in many parts of the country it's still light outside. \Roseanne\ is on an hour into prime time.
