'Return' reaps 11 noms as Tarantino's 'Bill' slashes 10

“The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” leads the list of nominees for the 2003 awards presented by the Online Film Critics Society.

Peter Jackson’s trilogy-capping adaptation of the J.R.R. Tolkien fantasy series nabbed 11 noms, including best pic, director and adapted screenplay. Sean Astin and Andy Serkis were nominated in the supporting actor category.

Miramax’s “Kill Bill Vol. 1” followed closely with 10 noms. Uma Thurman pulled in a nom for actress and Quentin Tarantino received noms for director and original screenplay.

Other best pic nominees are Sofia Coppola’s “Lost in Translation,” Clint Eastwood’s “Mystic River” and “City of God,” a Miramax release that was Brazil’s submission for last year’s foreign-lingo Oscar race.

Coppola and Eastwood were nominated for director along with Jackson, Tarantino and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, helmer of “21 Grams.”

Bill Murray (“Lost in Translation”), Johnny Depp (“Pirates of the Caribbean”), Paul Giamatti (“American Splendor”), Ben Kingsley (“House of Sand and Fog”) and Sean Penn (“Mystic River”) were nominated in the actor category.

Scarlett Johansson joins Thurman, Charlize Theron (“Monster”), Naomi Watts (“21 Grams”) and Angela Bettis (“May”) in the actress competition.

Supporting actor contenders are Astin, Serkis, Alec Baldwin (“The Cooler”), Tim Robbins (“Mystic River”) and Peter Sarsgaard (“Shattered Glass”).

In the supporting actress race, Renee Zellweger (“Cold Mountain”) vies with Shohreh Aghdashloo (“House of Sand and Fog”), Maria Bello of “The Cooler,” Patricia Clarkson in “Pieces of April” and Holly Hunter in “Thirteen.”

The winners of the 2003 OFCS Awards will be announced Jan. 5.
