I'm not a big U2 fan, but I went to one of their "Elevation" concerts last year just to see PJ open for them... Seriously! :)

Très bien... mais cela ne marche pas du tout, puisque ces films sont tous sortis en l'an 2000! Donc on ne peut certainement pas les considérer comme meilleurs films de 2001.

I think it deserved a "Best Picture" nomination as well, instead of just a "Foreign Film" nomination. After all, <i>Life is Beautiful</i> and <i>Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon</i> were also...
