Oscar Awards Tonight HOLLYWOOD (AP) - The 43rd annual Academy Award ceremonies unfold tonight amid glitter, glamour and added suspense: Will George C. Scott win the Oscar he says he'd refuse? Scott, long critical of competitive aspects of picking Oscar winners, has denounced the yearly extravaganza as a "meat parade" with "contrived suspense." If he wiris for his powerful portrayal of the World War n general In "Patton," the academy says, his Oscar will be accepted by the film's producer, Frank McCarthy. And what might McCarthy say as stand-in for his recalcitrant star, who is movie-acting in New York? "I haven't given it a thought," said the producer. The evening's presentation of 22 Oscars is scheduled for telecast by NBC at 10 p.m. EST from the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion of the Music Center. Bob Hope, making his 16th guest appearance during the ceremonies, will head a list of so-called best friends of Oscar who serve in place of any single master of ceremonies. Others who will present the gold-plated statuettes include Gregory Peck, Sally Kellerman, Goldle Hawn, Harry Belafonte, Maggie Smith, Burt Bacharach, Angle Dickinson, Shirley Jones, Glen Campbell, Sarah Miles, Joan Blondell, Jeanne Moreau, Merle Oberon, Burt Lancaster, Walter Mat: thau, Steve McQueen and Janet Gaynor. Scott Is the only major nominee absenting himself for personal reasons. Assignments prevent others' attendance. Glenda Jackson Is movie-acting on Cyprus, and Maureen Stapleton is performing in a New York play. Costar Jane Alexander is to accept the, Oscar for James Earl Jones if he wins as best actor for "The Great White Hope." Jones is starring in "Othello" at another Music Center theater and the play prevented his acceptance although he is scheduled earlier on the Oscar show as a presenter. Feature films made in 1970, and thus eligible for consideration, totaled 374. The five nominated for Oscars represent tradition vs. the contemporary: "Patton," "Airport"and "Love Story" suggest yesteryear's box-office hits while ' 'M-A-S -H'' and "Five Easy Pieces" have a racier new style. Nominees for best actor, besides Scott and Jones, are Melvyn Douglas in "I Never Sang for My Father;" Jack Nicholson, "Five Easy Pieces," and Ryan O'Neal, "Love Story." For best actress: Miss Alexander, "The Great White Hope;" Miss Miles, "Ryan's Daughter;" Carrie Snodgress, "Diary of a Mad Housewife;" Miss Jackson, "Women In Love," and All MacGraw, "Love Story."
