The remaining Father's Day honours go to ROBIN WILLIAMS and NATHAN LANE for their parts as gay dads in THE BIRDCAGE, new dad ADAM SANDLER, who got a taste for fatherhood in BIG DADDY and CHEVY CHASE, who gets a special mention for his role as bumbling CLARK GRISWOLD in the NATIONAL LAMPOON'S VACATION movies.
