Winners and nominees

The nominees for the 73rd Academy Awards were announced on February 13, 2001, by Robert Rehme, president of the Academy, and Academy Award-winning actress Kathy Bates.

The winners were announced during the awards ceremony on March 25, 2001. Gladiator became the first film to win Best Picture without a directing or screenwriting win since 1949's All the King's Men. Best Director winner Steven Soderbergh, who received nominations for both Erin Brockovich and Traffic (for which he won the award), was the third person to receive double directing nominations in the same year.Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon became the third film nominated simultaneously for Best Picture and Best Foreign Language Film in the same year. Moreover, its ten nominations were the most for a foreign language film. With four wins, the film tied with Fanny and Alexander as the most awarded foreign language films in Academy Awards history.[1] By virtue of his brother's Best Supporting Actor nomination for 1988's Running on Empty, Best Supporting actor nominee Joaquin Phoenix and River became the first pair of brothers to earn acting nominations.[2]
