    There you have it…the readers have spoken!

  • Massimo

    Leo DiCap for Catch Me If You Can, Dennis Quaid for Far From Heaven
    Y Tu Mama Tambien for Original Screenplay

    No Diane Lane for Unfaithful, No John C. Reily for Chicago
    Too many Two Towers nominations, not enough Minority Report nominations

  • Thomas

    Uhm … isn’t this the year of About a Boy? How did that not pick up a screenplay nod? PEOPLE!!!

    This was the year that Toni Collette got two mentions from me in the Supporting Actress race for both About a Boy and The Hours. Her role was tiny in the latter film … but she was spot-on perfect in it.

    I also believe Road to Perdition should have been an ensemble award nominee.

  • Eric McCainley

    I find the Best Picture nominees quite interesting…oh how they looked so nice when they were just five back then. The Lord of Rings fans sure showed a lot of their support, maybe a little too much.

  • George

    sad to see road to perdition not make the picture and director noms but love the support for adaptation. i’m not a fan of gangs of new york but agree with the techie noms for it. I also love the pianist as well, it’s going to be a tough choice between that and adaptation for best picture and director. also, where is the love for minority report? I thought that was an incredible film and should have gotten more nominations (and a picture nom over the hours imo).

    • Massimo

      Yeah, i wish Road to Perdition would have made it. I voted for it in picture and director too.

  • Josh P.

    I had a feeling that ACCA 2002 was going to look very similar to the Oscars, and I was right. Far be it from me to criticize people’s actual opinions, but I do hope that there can be a little more inventiveness for 2000 in at least some of the choices. Oh well, as for these nominees, there was much more love for “The Hours” than I thought there would be, but I am glad that Dennis Quiad managed to get in for “Far From Heaven” as well as the screenplay nod for “Y Tu Mama Tambien”. As always, I look forwardd to voting.

      We shall see…

  • Rob

    Double Streep, double Moore, Adaptation love, y tu mama tambien love, Far from heaven love.
    Unnecessary love for 2 towera, no picture for CMIYC, no surprises in acting, no John c. Reily or Gere, no Toni Collette, above all NO CINEMATOGRAPHY for Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN!!!

  • Steve

    My thoughts:

    Bummed about Gangs of New York missing in picture.
    Happy that the five directors I voted for got nominated.
    In actor, I voted for the same five that received Oscar nominations, but I’m okay with DiCaprio getting in.
    I am not a fan of The Hours, and can care less for its nominations.
    I think the wrong Dennis got in for Far from Heaven.
    Not happy about Samantha Morton and Emily Watson missing out on supporting actress.

  • Phill Milner

    I have a reccomendation for the staff. I really enjoy the ACCA’s each year, and going back to 2002 was a good idea, but i would love to see you guys hit up some earlier years. Specifically 94. I think we as the readers would have a really fun time not only picking nominees for that year, but especially the winners.

    • http://TheAwardsCircuit Joey Magidson

      We’re going to get there, just give it some time.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=26801810 Clayton Davis

    We are going in order. Next up will be 2001 and so forth. I can’t wait for 99′ and 94′ personally. Love to see all your thoughts on it.

    • Josh P.

      I believe we already did 2001 for ACCA. Wouldn’t 2000 be next?

    • Troy F

      Looking forward to those same years.
      99 will be awesome with films like Magnolia, Fight Club, American Beauty, the Insider, etc. in the mix
      94: Shawshank, Pulp Fiction, Quiz Show, Lion King and Hoop Dreams

  • Danny

    I can’t believe Bus 174 didn’t make the final cut. That was the best documentary of the year in my opinion.

    No one gives a fuck about 25th hour. x(
