"Frasier" also engaged in a bit of nostalgia with Woody Harrelson's guest appearance Thursday, the official opening of sweeps. On the downside, NBC's new comedy "Jesse" saw more than 5 million "Friends" viewers head elsewhere, with many switching to Fox to see if daredevil Robbie k'nievel survived his live "death jump." CBS' "Miss USA Pageant" received a solid score from the Nielsen judges, while the Pro Bowl game gained less ratings yardage for ABC than a year ago. BRIAN LOWRY Going back to the past has again helped NBC blast out of the sweeps starting gate, as "The '60s" generated the network's biggest Sunday audience since televising "Schindler's List" two years ago, based on results issued Tuesday by Nielsen Media Research. NBC fared well during the last ratings survey in November by airing another miniseries with a nostalgic flavor, "The Temptations." Sunday's results for "The '60s," featuring Julia Stiles, surpassed CBS' Hallmark movie "Night Ride Home" and Fox's heavily promoted start of a two-part "The X-Files," though all three programs per- Natlonal Nielsen Vlewershlp EGlKSCIIran-Sima(Farsi) 79953 60 KWHY Business News 24 KVCR Time to Grow KCET Zoboomafoo (TVr) 3B805 03 KTBN Marilyn Hickcy SO KOCE America Sews EB KVEA Rugrats ED KLCS Putting English to Work GB KRCA Emergence AMC Movie "Stanley and Livingstone" (1933) 5032836 CMAX Movie "Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie" 31990661 (7:451 Homes With Stylo (TVG) ESPN2 BodyShaping FAM All Dogs Go to Heaven (TVY FSW Fox Sports News FSW2 Forever Young FX MASH (TVPG) HB08abar(TVY LIFE Daily Workout (TVG) MTV MTV Jams Countdown (TVFG) NICK Tiny Toon Auventures 533584 TLC Jay Jay the Jet Plane (TVY) TMC Movie "End of the Line" (1988)11 hr. 45 min.)

As for Horrocks, he said it is difficult for her to travel and promote the film because she is pregnant. "Brenda Blethyn worked hard and made the rounds," he said. "But Jane was family first, and I don't blame her for that decision." Also passed over were Bill Murray, who was praised for his supporting role in "Rushmore," and John Boorman, who was touted for his direction of "The General." Less surprising, perhaps because the film was a commercial dud was the academy's treatment of "Beloved." The lavishly presented adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel was nominated in only one category: costume design. Performances by Oprah Winfrey, Danny Glover, Beah Richards, Thandie Newton and Kimberly Elise had drawn rave reviews from critics. Likewise, Holly Hunter's critically lauded performance in "Living Out Loud" may have been hurt by the movie's failure to ignite the box office. llJtandmark--Theatres LmI Discount Shows In TNo Passes LYII1 west! BYPEARLCLEAGE a little bit beyond their grasps," said Bingham Ray, co-president of October Films, which released the movie. He criticized the makeup of the committee that selects foreign-language films, charging that the academy traditionally overlooks daring, narratively inventive movies in the category. Iay said the committee is dominated by older academy members who prefer sentimental movies and lavish costume epics. Younger members should be added, he said, to improve the prospects for less traditional movies. Brenda Blethyn is nominated for supporting actress for "Little Voice," a British comedy distributed by Miramax. But the movie also boasted stand-out performances by Michael Caine as a sleazy talent agent and Jane Horrocks in the tide role as a shy woman who shines only when she's impersonating musical stars of the past. Caine won the Golden Globe last month for best actor in a musical or comedy. Miramax co-chairman Harvey Weinstein wasn't entirely surprised by their failure to win nominations, citing Caine's choice to be entered for best actor rather than best supporting actor and Horrocks' decision not to do promotion. "With Michael, the big thing was would we put him up for supporting or best actor," he said. "Not only do I think he would have had a belter shot at being CECCHI GOBI FINE ARTS (310)652-1330 6556 Wilshire Blvd. at La Cienega WESTSIDE PAVILION CINEMAS (310)475-0202 Westside Pavilion Malt, Third Level NUWILSKERE (310)394-8099 1314 Wilshire Blvd. Now Hiring Exclusive L.

I can't imagine why anyone in the movie industry would relate to that." When Carrey received the Golden Globe Award last month for best dramatic actor for "The Truman Show," he slipped in a thank you to the academy. As the audience howled, he added, "I'm sorry I was thinking of something else." It became obvious Tuesday, though, that the academy wasn't thinking about him. "I'm sure he'll survive," said Harris about the busy Carrey. "It's good to be working when you get news like this." Norton came out of the blue to win his best actor nomination. His performance was widely praised, but his movie has been largely overlooked and was not a commercial success. "The five nominations all send a message to me that the actors' branch looked at performances this year" rather than box-office grosses, said Steve Tisch, the movie's producer. Criticism of "American History by its own director, Tony Kaye, may have drawn attention from the movie and damaged the way it was perceived within the industry, Tisch said. Kaye campaigned against the film for weeks by taking out full-page ads in the trades and giving interviews in which he claimed control of the picture had been taken away from him. Perhaps no one should be surprised by who does or does not get Oscar nominations it is a guessing game every year, with merit not always figuring into the equation but a number of critically praised movies and performances were overlooked.
