CATHERINE Zeta-Jones celebrated her Oscar nomination in Majorca yesterday.

CATHERINE Zeta Jones was celebrating in Majorca last night after being nominated for an Oscar in the Best Supporting Actress category for her role in the hit film, Chicago. The Welsh star and husband Michael Douglas flew back to Majorca late Monday after giving evidence in their libel trial against OK magazine. Chicago danced around the competition at the Oscars, scoring 13 nominations including best film, as the U.S. film industry's top award show entered its final act. The movie, which has dazzled audiences with its adaptation of the Broadway stage show about an actress whose murderous ways make her a media star, also earned a nomination for Renee Zellweger in the best actress category but failed to earn star Richard Gere a nomination in the best actor group. Epic The Gangs of New York, about gang wars in 19th century New York and The Hours, a drama that ponders matters of life and death and centers on writer Virginia Woolf, followed Chicago with 10 and 9 nominations, respectively, also including best film. Rounding out the list of best movie nominees were the story of a battle for Middle Earth, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and in a surprise, Holocaust drama The Pianist. Meryl Streep earned her 13th nomination as an actress, surpassing screen legend Katharine Hepburn as the most nominated actress. Streep landed in the category for best supporting actress for her role as a writer in offbeat drama Adaptation, but was left out of the best actress grouping for her widely-touted part in The Hours. Julianne Moore became the first woman to be nominated in two categories in the same year, best actress for drama Far From Heaven, and supporting actress for The Hours.
