The Royal Ballet is very well represented on that list, too. NYCB is represented in the 'emerging choreographer' category (Wheeldon).
Too bad that the ceremonies won't be televised, a-la-Oscars and Tonys. I'm sure that the 'fashions' worn by Nijinsky nominees will be an improvement over those worn by celebs attending those gawd-awful MTV Awards!

The only disappointment was that there was no ballet dancing - the danced interludes were all danced by Savion Glover and his company, tapping their way through Stravinsky to Kurt Cobain.

W.C. Fields used to refer to Chaplin as "that damned ballet dancer!";)
