‘Moulin Rouge’ in orbit, topping Satellite noms

Fox musical nabs 14 noms including best pic

This article was corrected on Dec. 18, 2001.

“Moulin Rouge” was on top of the world when the Intl. Press Academy announced the nominations for the sixth annual Golden Satellite Awards.

Fox’s musical led all films with 14 noms including best picture, actor, actress, supporting actor, director and screenplay. New Line’s “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring” was next with nine.

Nicole Kidman was a double nominee, for “Rouge” and Dimension’s “The Others.” Chiller spooked up six noms, as did Fine Line’s gender-bending “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” and Touchstone’s “The Royal Tenenbaums.” USA’s “Gosford Park” and Warner blockbuster “Harry Potter” followed with five each.

Nominations for motion picture drama went to “Sexy Beast,” “Memento,” “The Deep End,” “In the Bedroom” and “The Others.” Comedy or musical nominees are “Moulin Rouge,” “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” “Bridget Jones’s Diary,” “Gosford Park” and “The Royal Tenenbaums.”

NBC (with three noms for “Will & Grace”) and HBO (boasting three each for “The Sopranos,” “Conspiracy” and “Band of Brothers”) were tops in television with 14 noms each, followed by ABC with 11, Showtime (nine) and CBS (seven).

Drama series nominees are “The West Wing,” “The Sopranos,” “Six Feet Under,” “The District” and “24.” Comedy or musical series nominations went to “Frasier,” “Everybody Loves Raymond,” “Dharma & Greg,” “Sex and the City” and “Friends.”

Karl Malden will receive the Mary Pickford Award. Ceremony will be held Jan. 19 at the St. Regis Hotel in Century City.

And the nominees are …
