GOLD:

(and everyone else)
SILVER:
Lantana
BRONZE:
Ocean's 11

BEST ACTOR IN A LIMITED OR CAMEO ROLE
Heath Ledger - Monster's Ball
Josh Lucas - The Deep End
Lafayette Montgomery - Mulholland Drive
Kumar Pallana - The Royal Tenenbaums
Patrick Swayze - Donnie Darko

Honourable Mentions: Ben Affleck (Boiler Room), Michael Anderson (Mulholland Drive)

GOLD:

BEST ACTRESS IN A LIMITED OR CAMEO ROLE
Illeana Douglas - Ghost World
Caroline O'Connor - Moulin Rouge!

GOLD:
Ann Miller - Mulholland Drive

SILVER:
Kylie Minogue - Moulin Rouge!
BRONZE:
Illeana Douglas - Ghost World

BEST BREAKTHROUGH - PERFORMANCE
Orlando Bloom - The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring and Black Hawk Down
Jake Gyllenhaal - Donnie Darko & October Sky
Audrey Tautou - Amelie & Venus Beauty Institute
Jonathan Tucker - The Deep End & 100 Girls
Naomi Watts - Mulholland Drive

Honourable Mentions: John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig), Laura Elena Harring (Mulholland Drive), Piper Perabo - Lost & Delirious

GOLD:
Naomi Watts - Mulholland Drive

SILVER:
Jake Gyllenhaal - Donnie Darko & October Sky
BRONZE:
Audrey Tautou - Amelie & Venus Beauty Institute

Note - At the time, I thought Bloom was quite a find. Alas, that didn't pan out. Tucker is just a cutie and while Gyllenhaal had October Sky and Tautou had Venus Beauty Institut (both in 1999) I only saw those films and their 2001 breakthrough films in 2001, so I included them. Watts is understandable though, right?

BEST BREAKTHROUGH - FILMMAKING
Jonathan Glazer - Sexy Beast
Steve Jacobs - La Spagnola
Robert Luketic - Legally Blonde
Daniel Minahan - Series 7: The Contenders
John Cameron Mitchell - Hedwig and the Angry Inch

Honourable Mentions: Robert Connelly (The Bank)

GOLD:
Jonathan Glazer - Sexy Beast

SILVER:
Robert Luketic - Legally Blonde
BRONZE:
John Cameron Mitchell - Hedwig and the Angry Inch

Note - I had not seen "Birth" at the time of "Sexy Beast" so it just proved to be fortuitous that my gold went to a man who a couple of years later made one of my all-timers. The other two I rewarded have since given us a) not much good or b) not much at all. We'll see how they go. Steve Jacobs is finally making a second film, which is good considering how visually ripe "La Spagnola" was. I look forward to it.

BEST VILLAIN
Marty Puccio, Played by Nick Stahl in Bully
The Duke, Played by Richard Roxburgh in Moulin Rouge!
Mr Roque (I think), Played by Michael Anderson in Mulholland Drive
Bertha Mills, Played by Fionulla Flanigan in The Others

Honourable Mentions: Jim Cunningham (Donnie Darko), Harry (Harry... He's Here to Help), Rusty Nail (Road Kill), The Pterodactyles (Jurassic Park III), Randyl (Monsters, Inc.), Saruman (LOTR:FOTR)

GOLD:
Nurse Connie, Played by Marylouise Burke in Series 7: The Contenders

SILVER:
Bertha Mills, Played by Fionulla Flanigan in The Others
BRONZE:
Mr Roque, Played by Michael Anderson in Mulholland Drive
(I'm still not entirely sure as to whether Mr Roque is even a villain, but he's certainly played as a villain and he seems to have a hand in many pots, so...)

This is Cal (17 years after I started reading this post).

Seriously, massive respect for all those categories. Loved them. Mulholland all the way! Though not enough Gosford Park for my liking. Hmph :P

I'm just seeing this now, but kudos to you for handing Amenebar a director nod for The Others. His efforts on that film (director, screenwriter, composer) - so criminally underrated.
