It was directed and choreographed by Rob Marshall and starred Renée Zellweger (nominated), Catherine Zeta-Jones (won), Richard Gere, John C Reilly (nominated) and Queen Latifah (nominated). It also won for its Art Direction, Costume Design, Editing and Sound. Kander and Ebb’s new song “I Move On” was nominated but lost to "Lose Yourself" from 8 Mile.
