Oscar Context

“Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” competed for the Best Picture with Ridley Scott's historical epic “Gladiator,” which won, two Soderbergh's films, “Erin Brockovich” and “Traffic,” and the schmaltzy romantic drama “Chocolate,” which was the weakest, artistically.

Julia Roberts won the Oscar at her third nomination. She was previously nominated in the supporting league for “Steel Magnolias,” in 1988, and in the lead category for “Pretty Woman,” in 1990.
