The 2001 Oscar Nominations

The 2001 Oscar Nomination are in and, because The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring received 13 nominations, headlines like this are being printed and typed everywhere: ‘Lord’ Runs Rings Around Oscar, ‘Rings’ lords over Oscar with 13 nominations, and the more subdued, ‘Rings’ Leads Oscar Nominations.

Here are the nominees for Best Picture:

    A Beautiful Mind
    Gosford Park
    In the Bedroom
    The Fellowship of the Ring
    Moulin Rouge

Although I did not see it, I have the impression that Amélie was robbed by not being included here.

I was happy to see at least some recognition for it, Memento, and The Royal Tenenbaums in the form of a writing (original screenplay) nomination.
