'Men' Reaches Out for a Few Good Globes : Awards: Film garners five Golden Globe nominations in key categories; 'Aladdin' also gets five with four of those for its song score.


In the screenplay category, all five nominees are for films selected in best picture categories: Bo Goldman for "Scent of a Woman," Ruth Prawer Jhabvala for "Howards End," Aaron Sorkin for "A Few Good Men," Michael Tolkin for "The Player" and David Webb Peoples for "Unforgiven."

"Howards End" star Emma Thompson, who has been named best actress by the Los Angeles and New York critics, was among best dramatic actress nominees, while Robert Downey Jr.'s much-lauded performance as silent screen star Charlie Chaplin won him a nod among the best dramatic actors.

Among other highlights: Miranda Richardson was twice nominated, for a leading role in "Enchanted April" and for supporting actress in director Louis Malle's "Damage"; Pacino also was nominated twice, as best actor in "Scent of a Woman" and for his supporting role in "Glengarry Glen Ross." Gene Hackman, who played the genial but sadistic sheriff in "Unforgiven," has been voted prizes by the Los Angeles and New York critics and is a supporting actor nominee in the Globes.

The Golden Globes for television are less closely followed by the industry since the Emmy Awards come at the end of summer.

"Aladdin" nominations--Walt Disney Pictures' "Aladdin" received five Golden Globe nominations, one for best musical or comedy picture and four in musical categories. One of its nominated songs, "Prince Ali," with music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Howard Ashman, was omitted from the nominations list in Wednesday's Calendar.

A photo of actress Joan Plowright was inadvertently identified as Richardson in some editions of Wednesday's Calendar.

Last year's Globe dramatic series winner, "Northern Exposure," was again nominated in that category, joined by "Beverly Hills, 90210," "Homefront," "I'll Fly Away," and "Sisters." "Northern Exposure" won the Emmy earlier this year.

The 1991 winner for best comedy series, "Brooklyn Bridge," was again nominated this year, joining "Cheers," "Evening Shade" "Murphy Brown" and "Roseanne." The low-rated "Brooklyn Bridge" was recently pulled from the CBS schedule.

The competition for miniseries or movie made-for-TV included the Emmy winner for this category, "Miss Rose White." The Hallmark Hall of Fame/Lorimar Television project featured Kyra Sedgwick in the title role, Maureen Stapleton and Amanda Plummer. Sedgwick received a Globe nomination for best actress, and Plummer, who won the Emmy, is a Globe nominee for best supporting actress.
