  5. It was a pretty good year for film in 2003 in my opinion, and some of the upcoming ACCA years are even better.

  8. Though I admit, I do flip between Murray and Depp. Damn, those two performances were genius.

  9. I prefer Murray's performance, but I recognize the strength of the other performances of the year.

    **I must add I am a MASSIVE LOTR fan, my room is literally covered in collectables, but for me Fellowship was the real film that should have won the BP Oscar as it was most stylish and best made. For me Return was just the most epic and more appropriate to reward the final installment.**
