He wasn’t nominated…
Luhrmann offers “Australia” as an escape from fear
He was nominated for a best picture and best director Academy Award for “Moulin Rouge!,” which also starred Kidman, while his wife, Catherine Martin, was nominated for a best art direction-set direction for “Romeo + Juliet” and then went on to win two Oscars for her work on “Moulin Rouge!”-
I noticed that this article states that director Baz Luhrmann was nominated for both a best picture and best director Academy Award for “Moulin Rouge!”
However, while he was nominated for best picture, Baz Luhrmann did not receive a best director nomination. Other than that correction, I very much enjoyed this article.
Right. We corrected: GBU Editor
