Dustin Hoffman has had a sparkling film career that has include four Academy Award nominations and two Oscar wins for best actor but it all seemed to go wrong after his last win in 1988. As the autistic 'Raymond' in Rainman, Hoffman outstanding performance overshadowed co-star Tom Cruise and it was really a case of the master giving the student a lesson in how to act. Since then, the 59-year-old actor has been on a bad streak starring in such forgettable clinkers as Family Business, Hook, Billy Bathgate, Hero and Outbreak which should have been a hit considering it co-incided with an Ebola outbreak in Zaire. Maybe his new film Sleepers will break him out of his slump. Nonetheless, Hoffman's early work in The Graduate, Midnight Cowboy, Little Big Man, All The President's Men, Tootsie and Kramer vs Kramer (his first Oscar) stands out and it is because of this he has been named the winner of the Cecil B. DeMille Award at The 54th Annual Golden Globe Awards (STAR Plus, 9pm). Considered the second most important awards to the movie industry after the Academy Awards, the Golden Globe came under fire last year as its 88-member association was accused of accepting graft from film studios. The association which includes a Bangladeshi appliance salesman, an Egyptian engineer and a Costa Rican marketing professional, was found to have accepted lavish junkets from film studios for its members to fly to film premiers. The association has vowed to clean up its act. Regardless of the controversy, the programme is always a good opportunity to see the television elite and several popular shows in Hong Kong in the X-Files, Chicago Hope, ER and NYPD Blue are nominated for awards. I have to question Eddie Murphy's nomination for best actor in The Nutty Professor which was nowhere as good as the Jerry Lewis original. Part comedy/part drama, Audrey Hepburn stars as Reggie Lambert, an American woman unhappy in her marriage in this Hitchcock-like mystery Charade (Pearl, 9.30pm). While on a skiing holiday in France, Reggie meets an attractive bachelor Peter Joshua (Cary Grant) who suggest they meet up once back in Paris. Returning to the capital to find her flat stripped of its possession, a policeman comes to the door to tell her that her husband has been murdered. After his death, it is then that she learns of the US$250,000 he had received from selling the contents of the flat. The money is missing and Joshua offers to help her search for it. Also looking for the cash is CIA investigator Walter Matthau and a slick trio of crooks, James Coburn, George Kennedy and Ned Glass. In my brief career as a journalist I have yet to come across such a miserable and pretentious bunch as the staff at Communique magazine. Most journalists are a fairly down-to-earth group but not the staff at Central Park West (World, 8.30pm). Power means money and this lot will do anything to get it. Tonight, editor Stephanie (Mariel Hemingway) returns from her retreat to fire Rachel (Kylie Travis) and then undermines her attempt at developing 10 fashion supplements for the publication. The Plague Fighters (World, 9.30pm) is a documentary that follows a group of Red Cross workers and doctors as they battle the deadly Ebola virus which broke out in Zaire in 1995. STAR Sport continues its live tennis coverage of the Australian Open, the first Grand Slam event of the year, with day eight action (8am) from Melbourne Park.
