Feb 12, 2002 by Ian Evans

If you weren’t up bright and early Tuesday morning, don’t worry, we were.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced the nominees today for the 74th Annual Academy Awards® at 5:30am Pacific. The announcing chores were handled by Academy president Frank Pierson and last year’s supporting actress winner Marcia Gay Harden.

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring snagged 13 nominations including Best Picture and Best Director, while A Beautiful Mind and Moulin Rouge both had eight. One of the surprises: no nomination for Moulin Rouge director Baz Luhrmann.
