British Academy of Film and Television Arts

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts bestowed their annual awards on February 24, 2002, with "Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring" capturing the most wins. Among the romantic movies that picked up honors were "Moulin Rouge," "A Beautiful Mind," "Iris" and "Shrek."
