 OSCAR NOMINEES THAT SHOULDN'T BE OVERLOOKED"

 BURBANK, Calif., Jan. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- "Siskel & Ebert" look back over the year's best movie-making in an effort to remind Academy voters of some great films and performances that they hope won't be overlooked as the members make their nominations for the year's Academy Awards.
 Following is a list of each critic's personal suggestions for whom they feel deserves recognition in the categories of Best Actor, Actress, Best Picture, Best Supporting Actress, Actor and Best Director for this year's Academy Awards. They will also propose favorites in several other categories of their individual choosing. In their inimitable style, they are bound to surprise each other with a couple of their choices, and maybe even disagree.
 "Siskel & Ebert" is distributed by Buena Vista Television, a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Co.
