Third Annual Cosmique Movie Awards

Celebrating the Best (and Worst) in Cinematic Achievement for 2002


At the 2002 Cosmique Movie Awards, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers lead the pack with a record 21 nominations, including double nominations in four categories. Chicago came next with 16 nominations, followed by The Hours with 11, Far From Heaven with ten, and Gangs of New York and My Big Fat Greek Wedding with six each. Far From Heaven also scored a Best Director nod for Todd Haynes even though he was shut out of the nominations for all of the major awards. This year, there was an extraordinary number of fifth place ties, resulted in several categories with six, seven, and even eight nominees.

When the awards were announced, The Two Towers continued to dominate with a record nine awards, but it was Chicago that took home the top honors for Best Film of 2002 as well as Best Director and Best Comedy/Musical. And Far From Heaven, which received four Oscar nominations but no awards, took home three Cosmos: Best Drama, Best Historical, and Best Actress for Julianne Moore - who was also named Best Supporting Actress for The Hours, the film's only award. The Best Actor award went to Adrien Brody for The Pianist, while Chris Cooper took the supporting honors for Adaptation.

For the first time, the Cosmos also had voters rate every movie they saw on a scale of one to ten, regardless whether or not they received any nominations. As a result of these ratings, Chicago was named both Most Watched and Most Popular, while two films that did not receive any nominations - 25th Hour and Talk to Her - tied for Highest Rated.

Bette Davis, Jimmy Stewart, and Citizen Kane were all inducted into the Lifetime Achievement Hall of Fame.
