Reilly earned supporting actor (Gangs of New York, The Hours, Chicago), and Susan Sarandon walked away with supporting actress (Igby Goes Down, Moonlight Mile).

Michael Horton and Jabez Olssen). Also honored were Conrad L. Hall for cinematography (Road to Perdition); The Rookie, starring recent Advocate cover boy Dennis Quaid, for family film; Lilo & Stitch (animated film); Mexico's Y Tu Mama Tambien (foreign film); and Kieran Culkin, who grabbed the Youth in Film Award (Igby Goes Down).
