"Rain Man," to no one's surprise, earned the most Oscar nominations Wednesday - eight - including one for best picture and another for Dustin Hoffman as best actor.

But there were some surprises as the 61st Academy Award nominations were announced, including "Dangerous Liaisons" as best picture, and Max von Sydow as best actor for the Danish film "Pelle the Conquerer," which has not played outside major metropolitan markets in this country.Though it is not unprecedented, it's unusual for an actor or actress to be nominated in two categories, but Sigourney Weaver is up for best actress for "Gorillas in the Mist" and for best supporting actress for "Working Girl." In 1983 Jessica Lange won the supporting actress Oscar for "Tootsie" and was nominated the same year as best actress for "Frances."

Also a surprise was Martin Scorsese's nomination as best director for "The Last Temptation of Christ," which many critics felt the Academy would ignore completely due to the controversy provoked by the film.

"Dangerous Liaisons" and "Mississippi Burning" each won seven nominations, putting them right behind "Rain Man" as having the most. Six nominations each were received by "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" and "Working Girl."

Up for best picture against "Rain Man" and "Dangerous Liaisons" are "Mississippi Burning," "The Accidental Tourist" and "Working Girl."

Dustin Hoffman will have as competition Gene Hackman for "Mississippi Burning," Tom Hanks for "Big," Edward James Olmos for "Stand and Deliver" and the aforementioned von Sydow.

In addition to Weaver, best actress nominees are Glenn Close for "Dangerous Liaisons," Jodie Foster for "The Accused," Melanie Griffith for "Working Girl" and Meryl Streep for "A Cry in the Dark."

The Oscar winners will be announced during a live television broadcast from Los Angeles on Wednesday, March 29.
