Audio problem: When Kelly starts talking about colon flushing Charlotte gets up to join Bob at the bar. In the background Kelly continues her story, but her mouthing and gestures are not at all in line with her words.



Audio problem: When Bob carries Charlotte back to her room, he opens her door using a regular key (you hear the "teeth" going into the lock, as as it turns). But when he comes out of the room and closes the door, you can see it's actually a card-key access room (the card-lock is on the right side of the door).

No woman had ever won "Best Director." Interesting enough, she was nominated nearly exactly a decade after the first female director (for "The Piano") was nominated.
