    The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring won four!!!

    Best Cinematography
    Best Original Score
    Best Makeup
    Best Visual Effects

    In my opinion that is rather disappointing, I believe that it should have won Best Picture and Director. It topped the Oscars, beating A Beautiful Mind by one so that does make it the best film of the year, but with 13 nominations if could have been the greatest film of all time!!!

    I have to agree somewhat with Ulairi in that LOTR should have won Best Picture as it was, it grossed huge volumes of cash at the box office, is still being played at cinemas across the globe 3-4 months after its release!

    Best director, I dont know, I think that LOTR and PJ winning Best Cinematography is a good compromise, lets see if he does well next year!

    I was really surprised Ian McKellen didn't win for best supporting actor, I really expected him to win. I would have liked to see LOTR win best picture, but I think the academy wanted to wait to see what the sequels to FOTR are like, before they start giving out the really important Oscars for LOTR. So, we'll see next year!

    It should of won best picture definatly.

    Hurray for No Man's land! I still have to see it, and maybe nowit will have a chance in the cinema's.

    I do not care to much about Oscars, but Ian McKellen should have got one.
    I do have another problem here: What is Cinematography and Original Score exactly? Make-up and Visual effects I understand, but what do those two others mean?

    Original score is the music for the film (which they won completely deserved!). Cinematography I don't know for sure, I always get the idea that the more beautiful landscapes you put in, the more chance you have of winning, but I suppose there's more to it than that.

    So I guess Music Score is the 'overall' music in the film and Music Song is for the title-song only?

    I think Cinematagraphy is the way it looks. The camera angles, color schemes, and lighting all figure into that I think.

    In that case it got the Oscars it deserved, IMHO. Thanks for letting me know people.:)

    Wrong. Best Picture, Hmmmmm. Best director "definitely, absolutely" not because of all the "liberties" he took in making the movie. It would have been a shame to reward someone who "cut" certain parts of the book by giving him an oscar.
    Cool.:)

    Not bad at all

    I for one am happy that LOTR got what it did. I think that overall it faired pretty well against the establishment. They hardly ever give fantasy/action films their due. The biggest disappointment was Ian's loss for best supporting actor but a nomination is a huge compliment. I think we will see TTT receive some bigger awards next year if it is as good as FOTR was. Last night's showing definetly got this film even more publicity and a potential additional fan base. More fans = more readers and that opens the door for even more people to enter JRRT's kick ass world of Middle Earth! LONG LIVE FRODO!

    The only that disapointed me is that Ian Mckellen did not win for Supporting actor! I think that he deserves it, he was so Gandalf in that movie, but that is.. I was hping that they did not win for writng, PJ wining Best director or best picture it was hard to believe, first for best director I would not like for the same reason that Baraka said, and best picture, come on we are talkien about the Academy Award!!! Do you know about some fantastic epic adventure that has ever won for best picture? Oscars do not like fantasy, they like the fact of real life as far as I know and LOTR did not have a chance with a Beatiful Mind on the road too.

    What I don't understand is how in all hell did Moulin Rouge take best costumes and best art direction? Those were in LotR pocket! I mean, art direction, *ok*, fine, I can forgive them because of all the dancing and stuff although IMO LotR had a much more complex art direction.

    But costume design? Those costumes of "working ladies" were better than 25,000+ costumes designed for LotR? Plus, if you go to the official LotR site, they have a documentary about the Ring Wariths and those actors wear 50 meters of fabric each! And like 20 layers or something! HOW??

    Also got pretty angry with that dude from Iris who took Sir McKellan's Oscar.

    Best picture also should've gone to LotR.

    I'm dissapointed that "LoTR" didn't win the best picture, and Ian McK. didn't win best supporting actor. I also thought that Enya would win the best song until I heard her sing on stage... I'm rather glad that PJ didn't win the best director one. Overall, I'm happy with Denzel Washington and Hally Berry winning the best actor/actress. Crowe and Kidman had rather bitter expressions....:)
    P.S. We'll be back with "TTT" and "RoTK".. Muahahahaha!!!!!!:rolleyes:

    I agree with all of you!!!! It should have won Best Picture, Best Director, and everything else. I didn't get to watch the Oscars, but I am disappointed that the Lord of the Rings didn't win. I read somewhere that it was on of six movies in Oscar history that got 13 nominations. Only two before it got 14. The Titanic and something else.

    I was really angered by Ron Howard's comment that A Beautiful Mind "was after all an acting movie". Now if that doesn't smack of elitism and the assumption that a movie that contains quite bit of special
    effects therefore means that the actors are relying more heavily on
    the effects and not their own individual performances,I don't know
    what does!
    Fellowship contained in my opinion, quite a few excellent performances and even had PJ toned down the FX (which only enhanced their abilities,NOT over-shadowed them). I think it would have stood
    a very good chance. That remark just seemed to be part of the on-going
    prejudice against sci-fi and fantasy in particular as supposedly not
    containing the quality "worthy of nomination".

    Wrong , it should definitely NOT have won Best Director. With all the "liberties" he took, it would have been wrong to award him with a Best Director trophy.

    To think that he might have been denied Best Director by the Academy because of liberities he took with the book is completely illogical. I thought we had your logic straightened out?
