BAFTAs When it comes to doling out gold statuettes, the Academy Awards could take a lesson from Britain's equivalent film honors, which aired on BBC America Sunday.

ROY SCHEIDER The tough-guy star of "The French Connection" and "Jaws" never got the acclaim he deserved.

Though Jon Stewart and producer Gilbert Cates were clearly pleased with Sunday's Oscar telecast -- bear-hugging each other and high-fiving the writing team -- the ratings drop was disastrous (see Scott Collins' E1 story for the specifics).

Too bad Rosenberg couldn't permit Ted Turner to give us a rare look at some positive aspects of Soviet society without including those boring knee-jerk anti-Sovieticisms. He devoted more space to his labored sentiments to discredit Turner and narrator Roy Scheider than to the show. EUGENE KUSMIAK Fallbrook
