No award for "Fargo" at Golden Globes


Bring on the Oscars.

Hollywood found out what the foreign press thinks is the best of 1996 cinema with the Golden Globe awards Sunday, as the Hollywood Foreign Press Association feted dramas with a definite foreign tone.

"The English Patient" was honored as best picture, England's Brenda Blethyn as top actress for "Secrets & Lies" and Australia's Geoffrey Rush for "Shine."

"Evita," the musical chronicling the life of legendary Argentine political figure Eva Peron, was a triple winner — taking honors for best musical or comedy movie, best musical-comedy actress for Madonna and best original song, "You Must Love Me."

"I have been so incredibly blessed in this past year," Madonna, who had her first baby last year, said in accepting her Golden Globe. "Making this picture has been a great experience artistically and spiritually. I will never forget it."

No movie swept the awards, which launch Hollywood's movie awards season and often presage the Academy Awards. The dark comedy "Fargo", which has won a trophy case full of critics' awards in recent weeks, went home empty-handed.
