The Academy Awards nominations always throw a few shockers into the mix, but when the 2003 contenders were announced last Tuesday, almost every category inspired gasps. A 13-year-old actress, Keisha Castle-Hughes of "Whale Rider," beat out actress Nicole Kidman for a best-actress nomination, and became the first minor to ever get a nomination in that category. Directors Gary Ross and Anthony Minghella lost out on directing nods to Brazilian newcomer Fernando Meirelles, whose film "City of God" was released by Miramax more than a year ago.
