During most of its 46-year history, the academy has re- warded the dramatic accom- plishments of Hollywood while ignoring the artisti who make audiences laugh. As result, the classic funnymen have failed to win Oscars for their Chaplin, Harold Lloyd, W. C. Fields, Laurel and Hardy, Buster Keaton and the Marx Brothers. Nor has the academy given awards for the work of such latter-day comics as Bob Hope, Red Skelton, Jerry Lewis, Danny Kaye, Woody Allen, Even the acknowledged master of light comedy, Cary Grant, was overlooked. The academy's board of governors has remedied the oversight with the device of the honorary award, usually with such a phrase as "for distinguished service to the art of screen comedy." Special Oscars were pre- sented to Edgar Bergen in 1937; Lloyd and Hope, 1952; Kaye. 1954, Eddie Cantor, 1956; Keaton, 1959; Stan Laurel, 1960; Grant, 1969, Chaplin, 1971. This year, Groucho. When the 83-year-old comedian learned of the honor, he responded in character: "My brothers and I should have gotten Jt long ago." Marx deplored the academy's traditional neglect of comedians and predicted that some day an Oscar will be given to Woody Allen It will not happen this year, even though Allen's new comedy, Sleeper, has been hailed as his best. The film received no nominations. An anonymous full-page ad appeared in Daily Variety: "Congratulations to the academy for turning its back on talent and artistry once again by ignoring Woody Allen and his superb .film Sleeper in Academy Award Charlie Chaplin Thw Caff Grant received Us only two academy nominations for Serenade in 1941 and None But the Lonely Heart in 1M4. This year Jack Lemman, who inherited position as the screen's No. 1 light comedian, has been nominated for best actor in his most dramatic performance, in Save the Tiger. Lemmon, who in 1955 won a rare Oscar for a comedy role- supporting actor, Mister Rob- strong competition. There is Marlon Brando, who might ordirtarily be considered the favorite for his stunning portrait of .a burned- out life in Last Tango in Paris. But Brando offended the academy voters by turning down.his Oscar last year in a bizarre manner. LOS ANGELES Also in the running for best actor of 1973 are three relative newcomers- Jack Nicholson of The Last Detail; Al Pacino, Serpico; and Robert Rcdford, the Sting. All are engaging and popular performers, but their roles lacked the depth of Lemmon's and Brando's. Because the academy shows no tendency to masochism, it is doubtful that it will risk another Brandovian rejection Lemmon is the likely winner. MAJOR PREDICTIONS Here are how the other major races look to a longtime Oscar watcher Best Actress No single galvanic performance overshadows all. Glenda Jackson did suprismgly comedic work in A Touch of Class, but as noted above comedy rarely wins. Barbara Streisand was accurate as the 1930' radical in The Way We Were. Marsha Mason brought new life to the brass-hearted hooker in Cinderella Liberty. If The Exorcist, scores a sweep, Ellen Burstyn might well levitate to the Oscar. But her performance seemed secondary to the directorial stunts. The favorite steau to be Joanae Woodward, who gave another of her accurate portraits of a middle-aged female in search of survival in Summer Wishes, Winter Dreams. Best Picture-Academy can overlook a film's deficiencies if it is n big money-maker, and hence the flawed The Exorcist appears the winner. Also running: American Graffiti, Cries and The Sting, A Touch of Class. Best supporting Aclor-John Houseman, a distinguished producer who had never acted in a film before, performed marvellously as the frosty professor of law in Paper Chase. He's the favorite. Again, Again, The Exorcist might 'sweep the Oscar to Jason Miller. And 'there is popular sentiment for all three of the other candidates: Vincent Gardenia, Bang the Drum Slowly, Jack Gilford, Save the Tiger; Randy Quaid, The Last Detail. Best Supporting Actress, This is the most difficult race to predict Will Linda Blair win as the demonized girl of The Exorcist or will the voters feel her performance was based on-trick makeup and photography? Will Tatum O'Neal be rewarded' as the worldly con girl in Paper Moon or will voters conclude that she was merely playing Tatum O'Neal? Two other young performers are nominated: Candy Clark for American Graffiti and Madeline Kahn for Paper Moon. Also a figure of Hollywood's past, Sylvia Sidney of Summer Wishes, Winter Dreams. Best guess: the academy will go for sentiment and Miss Sidney. Best director For previously stated reasons, William Fnedkin should be chosen for The Exorcist. Others nominated are George Lucas, American Graffiti, Ingmar Bergman, Cries and Whispers, Bernardo Bertolucci, Last Tango in Paris, George Roy Hill, The Sting. 'and the Marx Brothers never got any Oscars for their performances either.

Members and Invited Guests Only Academy have voted to restore the Emmy for all winners in the performing, writing and directing categories on its awards telecast May 28. The original idea of the dis- puted awards structure was to reduce the number of Emmys to produce a better awards show The action late Saturday night by the trustees results in more Emmys than ever before The trustees' latest action was the second compromise taken in two days by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences in the face of a threatened boycott of a telecast by an estimated 160 stars, writers, directors and producers' The compromise vote by the 30-member trustees board was taken after long discussion. The trustees finally agreed to restore the Emmys in all categories after they were unable to muster the 24 votes needed to establish a distinguished award in place of the Emmy. About 215 Emmys were pre- sented last year. Only 75 would have been presented under the disputed awards structure now discarded. The TV Academy announced last Feb. 12 that it had adopted a new awards structure that would present Emmys in the creative arts only to the actor and actress of the year, supporting players of the year, director of the year, and writer bf the year.

"No wonder I moaejr, Israeli film maker beats odds LOS ANGELES (AP) It takes chutzpah for an Israeli film maker to shoot a movie'in Hollywood about a United States gangster. Menahem Golan has it. Chutzpah is Yiddish for "unmitigated effrontry or applied to persons wo persist in the face of great odds. Golan used his drive to found a movie enterprise in his native Israel and invade foreign markets with remarkable success. His musical, Kazablan, was the first Israeli film to be released by a major U.S. company, MGM. Three of his other films have been nominated for Oscars as best foreign- language pictures Sallah, I Love You, Rosa, and this year's The House on Chelouche Street. Golan is trying a Hollywood movie "because that's the only way to break into the international market. An Israeli film will always have a limited release." Golan has been shooting Lepke, starring Tony Curtis, Anjanette Comer', Michael Callan and Milton Berle. He plans to other gangster movies. This week his company is starting The Four Deuces, starring Jack Palance and Carol Linley. In June comes Hit the Dutchman, the saga of Dutch Schultz, as yet uncast. haven't made any says the gunmen.

GOOD NEWS NEW YORK (AP) The nun who runs the old' Times Tower building at Times Square says the electronic news bulletins that girdle the tower will henceforth contain only good news or advertisements. 'Alex Parker, a garment district real estate man who recently leased the building from .Allied Chemical, said: 1 'I'm sick of headlines about war. kidnappings and budget gaps. I've had it with bad news Parker said he also is looking for a commercial sponsor for the "good news" bulletins because the operation costs him a vear. Longest made TV film to run for hours NEW YORK (AP) QB VII, a made-for-televisipn movie based on Leon Uris' best-selling novel of the same name, will run for hours on ABC April 29 and 30. Producer Douglas Cramer says it is the longest made- for-television film yet five -hours and 20 minutes without commercials, titles and station breaks. QB VII, bought by ABC in April, 1971, for concerns the lives of a novelist and a physician, the latter forced by the Nazis during the Second World War to perform illegal operations in concentration camps. The novelist names the physician as a war criminal in a book, the doctor sues for libel, and their legal war ends at a trial in London. Putting the story on film involved a 340-page script, 150 speaking parts, four months of shooting in the United States. Belgium, Israel and England and a total production cost of million.
