"Without doubt I'll make a film less successful (than The Piano) but that's all right with me, as long as it's satisfying to make. I just hope I don't get addicted to the salary level"  -Jane Campion

AMERICAN FILM INSTITUTE AWARDS: WINNERS 2001

LOTR GETS TOP AFI GONG
The Lord of the Rings (part 1) has won its first major official accolade with a Movie of the Year award from America’s Film Institute, while Moulin Rouge won awards for editing and music score, and Judy Davis was voted Actor of the Year – Female, for her role as Judy Garland in “Life With Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows" (ABC).

The Lord of the Rings also won awards in production design and digital effects, while the top male acting honours went to black Americans: Denzel Washington for Training Day and Geoffrey Wright for the tv movie Boycott, in which he plays Martin Luther King jr.

Robert Altman’s Director of the Year (for his Gosford Park) will be a much treasured award for the director who shuns the new Hollywood, but enjoys enormous respect elsewhere.
