If you listened to the Awards Circuit Power Hour two weeks ago, then you heard the winners read for the Awards Circuit Community Awards – Year 1999. For those who didn’t have the chance to listen to the winners, the full list is down below. As you can see, the readership of the Awards Circuit still agrees that Sam Mendes’ American Beauty was the best film of the year seen by the wins in Best Picture, Director, and Original Screenplay.
Kevin Spacey reclaimed his title, winning Best Actor in a Leading Role over Russell Crowe. While in the real world, Annette Bening has never received recognition from AMPAS, she was chosen over Oscar-winner Hilary Swank. In the Supporting categories Tom Cruise was awarded for his performance in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Magnolia while Angelina Jolie reclaimed her prize for Girl, Interrupted. PT Anderson’s film also won Best Cast Ensemble. In Adapted Screenplay, Jim Uhls triumphed for penning David Fincher’s Fight Club, the only award the film received surprisingly, given it was the most nominated film with twelve.
The full winners are listed below. The longlist will be released in the next few days for Year 1998 where Shakespeare in Love triumphed over Saving Private Ryan. Will it happen or again or will another film like The Truman Show or Pleasantville swoop in? Look out for it.

By now, hopefully many of you listened to the Awards Circuit Power Hour from this week to hear your nominees for the Awards Circuit Community Awards for 1999. Looking at the film year, it was a great opportunity to make some eclectic choices in various categories which many were taken. David Fincher’s cult-classic Fight Club led the nominations with twelve including Best Picture, Director, and two Best Actor nominations for Edward Norton and Brad Pitt. Sam Mendes’ Oscar-winner American Beauty followed closely behind with eleven nominations including a citation for Chris Cooper in Best Supporting Actor.
Paul Thomas Anderson’s Magnolia scored nine nominations including Supporting mentions for Tom Cruise and Julianne Moore. Moore was double-nominated by the community for the second time. The other mention is in Lead Actress for Neil Jordan’s The End of the Affair, the sole nomination for the film. A film that surprisingly only scored one nomination was Michael Mann’s The Insider. The powerhouse film that was nominated for seven Oscars only managed Russell Crowe for citation in Lead Actor. Stanley Kubrick’s final film Eyes Wide Shut received one nomination as well for Nicole Kidman.
Jim Carrey received his second ACCA nomination for Lead Actor for Milos Forman’s Man on the Moon. He’ll compete against Oscar’s Best Actor winner Kevin Spacey. Hilary Swank from Boys Don’t Cry and Annette Bening from American Beauty will square off again for the coveted title of Best Actress but they are now joined by Nicole Kidman for Eyes Wide Shut, Julianne Moore, and Reese Witherspoon for Election.
Supporting Actor had a tie for six nominees that include Cooper, Cruise, the late Michael Clarke Duncan for The Green Mile, Jude Law for The Talented Mr. Ripley, John Malkovich for Being John Malkovich, and Haley Joel Osment for The Sixth Sense. Supporting Actress will have Oscar-winner Angelina Jolie square off against Helena Bonham Carter for Fight Club, Cameron Diaz and Catherine Keener for Being John Malkovich, and Julianne Moore.
The blockbuster hit The Matrix scored one major nomination in Original Screenplay after many speculating the potential for the film to show up in Best Picture and Directing. The Wachowski’s classic film managed seven nominations in total. Toy Story 2 landed an Adapted Screenplay nomination along with Alexander Payne’s Election and Frank Darabont’s The Green Mile.
Voting will open up later today. You will only be able to vote one time per category so make sure it counts. Who are you rooting for? Read more on David Fincher’s ‘Fight Club’ Leads ACCA Nominations with 12, ‘American Beauty’ Scores 11…
