The surprise showing of "Scent of a Woman" as best dramatic picture and its star Al Pacino as best actor in a dramatic role at Saturday night's 50th Golden Globe Awards adds a new twist to the Academy Awards race for best picture Oscar. The film, in which Pacino plays a blind retired Army lieutenant colonel, picked up a third award for Bo Goldman's screenplay. In doing so, it zapped such big Oscar favorites as "A Few Good Men," "Howards End" and "The Crying Game."

Were critics who moaned about the 2-hour, 37-minute length of Universal's "Scent of a Woman," the male-bonding drama starring Al Pacino and Chris O'Donnell, being sticks-in-the-mud? Variety's Todd McCarthy said it "goes on nearly an hour too long" and Newsweek's David Ansen said it "doesn't warrant a 2 1/2-hour running time." The film's screenwriter, Bo Goldman ("Shoot the Moon"), and executives at Universal couldn't disagree more.

With the Academy Awards arriving in three weeks, it's time to think not only about the winners but about which nominated films will be made into television series. A theatrical movie doesn't have to be an Oscar nominee to gain extended life in prime time, of course. Big box office is a sufficient pedigree, witness the coming series clone of "A League of Their Own."
