Bright Preview For Oscars: The Golden Globe Awards

`SCHINDLER'S List,'' considered by many critics to be the crowning achievement of Steven Spielberg's career, left the director at a loss for words.

``The sad thing for me, I don't know what I'm going to do next,'' Mr. Spielberg said in accepting the Golden Globe Awards for best dramatic picture and director on Jan. 22.

```Schindler's List' was the experience of my motion-picture life,'' says the maker of ``Jaws,'' ``E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial'' and ``The Color Purple.''

What could lie ahead are Oscars for the director and his searing black-and-white film about a Nazi profiteer's rescue of Jewish people in the Holocaust.

The Golden Globes, awarded by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, are seen as a barometer of film industry sentiments leading up to voting for the Academy Awards, which will be handed out March 21.

Tom Hanks was honored as best actor in a dramatic performance for his work in ``Philadelphia,'' and Holly Hunter took the best-actress award for ``The Piano.''

Robin Williams was named best actor in a musical or comedy for masquerading as a British nanny in ``Mrs. Doubtfire,'' which was named best musical or comedy film.

Angela Bassett, who portrayed Tina Turner in ``What's Love Got to Do With It,'' won the Globe for best actress in a musical or comedy.

Winona Ryder of ``The Age of Innocence'' and Tommy Lee Jones of ``The Fugitive'' won awards for supporting roles.
