I really don't like 2001! 2003 is so much better. And I need to stress, now more than ever, that the following picks are strictly subjective in nature, as Mulholland Drive would probably emerge victorious in every single category otherwise. All I care about...

Best Picture
01. Stiletto Dance
02. Mulholland Drive

Best Direction
01. Mario Azzopardi (Stiletto Dance)
02. David Lynch (Mulholland Drive)

Best Lead Performance
01. Eric Roberts in Stiletto Dance
02. Naomi Watts in Mulholland Drive
03. Tom Cruise in Vanilla Sky
04. Sean Penn in I Am Sam
05. Denzel Washington in Training Day

Best Film Editing
01. Stiletto Dance (Glenn Berman)
02. Mulholland Dr. (Mary Sweeney)

Best Original Score
01. Stiletto Dance (Gary Koftinoff)
02. Mulholland Drive (Angelo Badalamenti)

And it's a clean sweep for Stiletto Dance!
