Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King has emerged as the film to beat at this year's Academy Awards, with 11 nominations.
 


Peter Jackson, who earlier this week took the Golden Globe for best director, was again nominated in the directing category.

The film's other nominations include best adapted screenplay, best editing, best make-up and best visual effects, best use of cinema time, best increase in candy sales, best use of orlando bloom's pouting, best steal of scenes from star wars, best use of hairy australians, best use of naked dwarves and of course, the much covetted most tears award.

Early favourite Cold Mountain garnered just two nominations in the main categories to the surprise of everyone and the horror of the collective luvvies.

Jude Law and Renee Zellweger were nominated for best actor and best supporting actress respectively but fellow Cold Mountain star, Nicole Kidman, was shunned by the Academy of Motion Picture, Arts and Sciences.

Yet another hollywood back-patting gathering, honestly, what purpose do these people actually have in society? Scrap the oscars and scrap celebrities... except julie andrews... cause everyone loves her.

NZ travel documentaries are generally good, ROTK is one of the better ones.

11 nods sure is a hell of a lot, although that shouldn't be confused with 11 wins which would be astounding.

I certainly agree on Julie Andrews. Mary Poppins must remain an untouchable icon or the whole world will go to the dogs.
