It wasn’t really a surprise when Catherine Zeta-Jones was announced in the Best Supporting Actress category for which Meryl has won her 13th nomination for “Adaptation”. Later in the show, she presented the Lifetime Achivement Award to Peter O’Toole. Nicole Kidman won the trophy for “The Hours”, so did Chris Cooper for “Adaptation”.

Altough she lost to Catherine Zeta-Jones in the Best Supporting Actress category, Meryl Streep entered the stage at the British Academy Awards for giving perhaps the evening’s best moment – Streep read aloud Kaufman’s “faxed” acceptance speech, which was as funny as Adaptation and even funnier read by Streep. Kaufman won for Best Adapted Screenplay, Nicole Kidman was named Best Actress for “The Hours”.

A studio mistake left Meryl Streep competing against herself for the Screen Actors Guild Awards, possibly costing her one if not two nominations. A Sony spokesman said a studio employee incorrectly submitted Streep’s name in the lead-actress category for “Adaptation”. The studio considers it a supporting-actress role and has been pushing Streep in that category for other film awards. The mistake May have split Streep’s votes between “Adaptation” and her other contending role for “The Hours,” which Paramount also had submitted in the lead-actress category.
