Best director: Kevin Costner


A solid majority of Evening Sun readers and other callers to Lou Cedrone's SUNDIAL Oscar Line believe Kevin Costner will be named Best Director for "Dances With Wolves" when the Oscars are handed out next Monday night.

Sixty-seven percent of the 117 respondents in a telephone survey conducted last Tuesday chose Costner, followed by Martin Scorsese for "GoodFellas" (14 percent), Francis Ford Coppola for "Godfather Part III" (10 percent), Stephen Frears for "The Grifters" (5 percent) and Barbet Schroeder for "Reversal of Fortune" (4 percent).

Forty-six percent of the callers knew the answer to the movie trivia question posed: Which award-winning movie from two years ago did Stephen Frears direct? The answer? "Dangerous Liaisons."

There is still time to enter "You vs. Lou," our annual Oscar contest. An entry form will be published in Thursday's Evening Sun. Entries must be postmarked no later than Sunday, March 24.

TOMORROW: Results of the telephone poll on who will win Best Actress.
