Dont Cry for Her
Nothing personal, but the omission of Madonna from the list of Oscar nominees for best actress highlights a welcome development. For years, the movie industry had so little interest in women that Academy Awards nominators had trouble scraping up five actresses in creditable leading roles to fill the category. This year there was enough surplus to leave the Evita star out. Perhaps Madonna can take comfort in the fact that she was sacrificed in the name of a positive trend. Debbie Reynolds, alas, was ignored too. What a ridiculous time for Hollywood to depart from its tradition of rewarding troupers in career-capping roles. Perhaps male voters were scared off by Ms. Reynoldss performance as one of the most foxy, engaging and relentlessly terrifying moms in movie history..

Madonna on HBO
Despite a somewhat shaky start with audiences, Six Feet Under, the HBO series about a family in the mortuary business, became a hit on Sunday nights this summer. Its two-episode season finale on Sunday was watched by nearly seven million people, better than the previous weeks summer finale of Sex and the City, which was watched by about 6.6 million people.

The announcement was made during NBCs Sunday Night Football broadcast of a game between the Detroit Lions and the New Orleans Saints, confirming reports that emerged in October that the N.F.L. was in discussions with Madonna..

To the Editor: In the last month The Times has subjected its readers to weighty discussions of Madonna as art critic and social oracle, and now the new voice of feminism. Enough already. Madonnas only real talent is self-promotion. I can only hope that, like Ronald Reagan, Donald Trump, junk bonds and other such relics of the 1980s, she will just fade away. JOSHUA ROSENBAUM New York

Madonna, Blond Ambition, Indeed
There are some biographies that cry out for the cheap slickness and superficiality that television movies insist on cultivating, and a prime specimen is available in tonights Madonna: Innocence Lost, formerly titled Madonna: Unauthorized. Actually, a more Victorian subtitle, something like Virtue Trampled, would be closer to the mark. Sitting alone in her dressing room at Radio City Music Hall, the superstar Madonna (Terumi Matthews) looks into the mirror and says, I didnt expect it to be this way. Thats about as sympathetic as she gets in this tale of ambition driven by unceasing selfishness and ruthlessness. Madonna Ciccones early years in Detroit, where, she recalls, I began my career in petulance and precociousness, are condensed to blurbs. Mom dead of cancer, father (Dean Stockwell, of all people) always there for her, stepmother a problem. High school: When I lost my virginity, I considered it a career move.

Unacceptable And Disrespectful
To the Editor: If only Madonna could defend herself as well as Caryn James does! I was truly surprised to read Ms. Jamess rose-covered account of Madonnas most recent narcissistic, exploitative trash [ Beneath All That Black Lace. , Dec. 16 ]. Just as readily and inexplicably as Madonna changes images, she tossed on a feminist costume for her latest performance, on Nightline. As a woman, a parent and an informed citizen, I am more offended by her last-minute, nonsensical rationalizing than I am by her poor taste and questionable judgment. Her mediocre self-defense is unacceptable and disrespectful to the legions of women (and men) who have struggled for the benefit of all women. Can Madonna truly believe that she deserves to be counted among them? Her imagery does not address women involved in feminist issues or in need of feminist counsel; it speaks to children, an undoubtedly small percentage of which were awake to hear her inarticulate rambling on Nightline.

A Reach Too Far
To the Editor: I am worried for women and particularly for feminists in an age when a New York Times writer can revere as the most influential feminist of our day, one who she says is redefining feminism itself, a woman she also calls a bimbo in control of her bimboness. Madonna can claim shes a feminist without its being so -- George Bush also calls himself the environmental President. If simply being female and doing as one pleases is now radically, groundbreakingly feminist, then I suppose Caryn James would expect us, by the same token, to embrace as fellow feminists Phyllis Schlafly, Nancy Reagan, Penthouse centerfolds and all women who are anti-choice. I find such a stretch to be beyond my reach, and am afraid Madonna has claimed another victim in her campaign to make women feel their sexual power is their only power. Madonna is not pro-women. She is pro-Madonna. JOY NOLAN Florence, Mass.
