"Forrest Gump," the saga of a simple country boy who does amazing things, collected top honors at the Golden Globe Awards on Saturday night, scoring in the dramatic film category for actor Tom Hanks, director Robert Zemeckis and as best dramatic picture. Jessica Lange was a surprise winner of the best dramatic actress award as the angry Army wife in "Blue Sky." The film had a limited release and even the star called it "a strange and peculiar little film."

Awarded by the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn., a small and insular and somewhat mysterious group of variously credentialed journalists, the Golden Globes are awards of minimal intrinsic, though of obvious practical, value. A perfect example of the self-fulfilling glamorization that's at Hollywood's heart, the awards are by definition important because big stars show up to receive them, and because people tune in to watch them receive them.

Here's a modest proposal for the Golden Globe Awards telecast Sunday night: Make the presenters wear tragic masks when reading the nominations in the drama categories and comic masks when reading the nominations in the musical/comedy categories. That way we'll have a better chance of keeping the knuckleheaded division straight this year. How else are we to remember that "Inside Llewyn Davis," a somewhat downbeat picaresque adventure from the Coen brothers, is competing as a comedy, while "Philomena," a real-life morality tale masquerading as a chuckling odd couple comedy, is contending as a drama?

Francis Ford Coppola's "The Godfather Part III," Kevin Costner's "Dances With Wolves" and such mass-appeal hits as "Dick Tracy," "Ghost" and "Pretty Woman" led the nominations for the annual Golden Globe Awards for motion pictures announced Thursday morning in Beverly Hills. Although the nominations were widely spread among 32 movies, it was "Godfather Part III," with nods in seven categories, that topped the list. On the television side, NBC's "L.A.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Assn.'s Golden Globe Awards are a bit tarnished this year ("Globes Make Their Nods, as Oscar Awaits," Dec. 21). Not even one nomination for "Harry Potter"? Was "Harry" too popular or too successful or too childish for them to honor? When a good film and its director and actors are ignored, something is wrong. In protest, I will see "Harry Potter" that evening. PAUL EUMMELEN San Diego
