And Picture makes 11

And Best Picture to Peter Jackson, Barrie Osborne and Fran Walsh makes it 11 out of 11 for Lord of the Rings: Return of the King.

While most were saying LOTR was a clincher for Best Picture, no one was predicting a clean sweep. It is the only film to have won 11 Oscars in a clean sweep of the categories it was nominated for. Titanic and Ben Hur also won 11 but had been nominated for more categories (12 and 14 IIRC).

A huge day for not just Peter Jackson but all the mainly NZ based winners.
