After 29 years as a preacher d 20 years as one of the most tspoken and controversial fig- es in B.C.'s political history, ere was little Phil Gaglardi id to learn when he undertook two-week stint at the micro- lone for radio station CFJC amloops. Whenever he became involved a was e was at times quick-witted, u tspoken, blunt, friendly, larming, angry, curt, over- icwering, patient, impatient nd in the space of a :w minutes. It was a professional perform- nce that had listeners jam- dng the three telephone lines andling program calls every me he took to the air. On ome days the volume of callr vas so heavy the scheduled 60- minute program was allowed to un 30 minutes overtime. The success of the program is money in the bank for CFJC. For one thing, the former So- ial Credit cabinet minister con tint coincided with the semi- nnual ratings survey of radio steners by the Board of Broad- ast Measurements, which are sed as a basis for establishing major awards: Cabaret, The Emigrants and Sounder. Liv Ull man is given a slight edge to win as best actress for her role as the indomitable housewife in The Emigrants. The Swedish-language film is seen by some critics as a sleeper that could squeak past The Godfather for best picture. CABARET IS IUVAL The musical Cabaret rivals The Godfather with 10 nomi- those for Liza Minelll as best actress, Joel Gray as bsst supporting actor, best picture, best direc- tor and best screenplay from another medium. Three Godfather James Caan, Robert Duvall and Al nominated for best supporting actor, but they could cancel each other out. There never have been three winners from one film. Joel Gray as the decadant master of ceremonies in Caba- ret is favored in the best sup- porting actor race, although Ed- die Albert of The Heartbreak Kid could be a sentimental choice. Voting for the awards is "In and predicting the outcome is risky. Here are the major nominees and the favor- ites: Best picture: Cabaret, Deliv erance, The Emigrants, The Godfather and Sounder. The Godfather is far and away the favorite. Best actor: Marlon Brando in The Godfather, Michael Caine and Laurence Oliver in Sleuth Peter OToole in The Ruling Class and Paul Winfield SSounder.
