The final part of the Lord of the Rings trilogy has swept the board at this year's Oscars, winning an award in every category in which it was nominated.

  • Friday Lord of the Directors: David Willis talked to Lord of the Rings Director Peter Jackson.

    "The biggest gamble of all was making three movies at the same time," he told us. "We shot all of the trilogy before the first was even released, which was unheard of.
