LOS ANGELES () -- "Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera" and "The Aviator" tied for the most nominations by the International Press Academy for its ninth annual Satellite Awards, which will be handed out Sunay, Jan. 23.

The musical Broadway adaptation for Warner Bros. and the biopic of Howard Huges for Miramax each picked up 11 nominations for the awards chosen by the world's largest group of international film critics.

"Phantom" has the most acting nominations of any film on the list with Emmy Rossum, Gerard Butler, Minnie Driver, Patrick Wilson and director Joel Schumacher all getting nods for the artistic adaptation.

"Aviator" has an acting nomination for Cate Blanchett for her role as Katharine Hepburn, and Martin Scorsese was nominated for best director. However, Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role was snubbed. "Aviator" opens Friday, Dec. 17 and "Phantom" opens Wednesday, Dec. 22.

The IPA is known for honoring off-beat films and the nominations include Catalina Moreno for "Maria Full of Grace," Sigourney Weaver for "Imaginary Heroes," Jena Malone for "Saved," Cloris Leachman for "Spanglish," Christopher Walken for "Around the Bend," Javier Bardem for "The Sea Inside" and three acting nods for "Kill Bill 2" for Uma Thurman, Darryl Hannah and David Carradine.

Nominations for best comedy or musical are "Ray," "Merchant of Venice," "Sideways," "Napoleon Dynamite," "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou" and "The Phantom of the Opera."

Best dramatic motion picture nominees are: "The Aviator," "Hotel Rwanda," "Kinsey," "Maria Full of Grace," "Kill Bill, Vol. 2" and "Vera Drake."

A total of seven nominations go to "Ray" and six for "Kinsey." Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ" received one nomination for best director.

In the TV categories, "Desperate Housewives" dominated as well as the TV movie "Something the Lord Made."

Best TV comedy nominees are: "Desperate Housewives," "Arrested Development," "Gilmore Girls," "Scrubs" and "The Bernie Mac Show."

Best TV drama nominees are: "Lost," "Nip/Tuck," "Boston Legal," "The L Word" and "The Shield."

The Outstanding New Talent honor will go to 12-year-old Freddie Highmore, who plays Peter in "Finding Neverland" and stars in "Two Brothers" and the upcoming "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory."

Susan Sarandon will be presented the Mary Pickford Award and Jerry Lewis will win the Tesla Award for their outstanding contribution to the film industry.
