NO LAUGHING MATTER Nicholson gets serious about comedy

Jack Nicholson had a memorable Golden Globes moment

Jack Nicholson and the Golden Globes have been good to each other over the years. He's won six trophies and a lifetime achievement award, and in return, he's made memorable appearances. Accepting the Best Dramatic Actor award for ''About Schmidt,'' he said, ''I don't know whether to be happy or ashamed because I thought we made a comedy... Dermot Mulroney, his haircut alone should have let you know it was a comedy.'' He also praised costar Kathy Bates, referring to her as ''Bates Motel.'' His explanation for his free-flowing wit: ''I took a Valium tonight.'' Glad we can count on you, Jack.
