FOTR had four nominations going into The AFI Awards. Best Digital Effects, Production Design, Best Score, and Film of The Year!
Jim Rygel received the award for Best Digital Effects. Next, Grant Major accepted the award for Production Design. Unfortunately, Howard Shore lost out to “Moulin Rouge” for Best Score. And to top off the night of winnings, FOTR walked away with Best Film of The Year, gladly accepted by Producer Barrie Osborne.
Great job, to everyone involved with FOTR. You deserve it!!
