Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia 1998 was the only year that two performers were nominated for Academy Awards for playing the same character in two different movies: Dame Judi Dench was nominated (and won) for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for playing Queen Elizabeth I in Shakespeare in Love (1998), and Cate Blanchett was nominated for Best Actress for portraying Elizabeth I in this movie. Joseph Fiennes appeared in both movies as well. See more »
Goofs At the beginning of the film when Elizabeth is being arrested, she is addressed as "Princess Elizabeth". She was stripped of the title 'Princess' when Anne Boleyn was executed and called 'lady'. Mary Tudor made certain that distinction was maintained during her reign as she followed Catholic Law and considered Elizabeth a bastard. See more »
