The new millennium has started well for Bob Dylan - an Oscar & Golden Globe for Things Have Changed, a Grammy for Love and Theft. The enthusiasm for Masked and Anonymous (even if the film passed most people by) and now Volume One of Chronicles and still time to keep on the road!

Bob Dylan and Lauryn Hill present award for best album to Carlos Santana at the 42nd Grammies.
15/5/2000 - Polar Music Prize - **(2hrs!)
Bob receives the Polar Music Prize at Berwaldhallen in Stockholm, Sweden. Poor Bob, why do we make him do these things? A mind numbing pageant of violins, speeches and other people performing his songs. Rounded off by a bizzare dinner party that Bob managed to duck out of.
21/5/2000 - Horsens TV News - Denmark TV2(?)
Danish TV2 caught Dylan walking out from the Horsens theatre and into a waiting van, all wrapped up with a white towel around his head. (R.M.D)
The picture on the left was taken at the time, but isn't from the film clip.
27/5/2000 - Modena - Italian TV News**(3m)
Really nice film (hopefully there's more of this somewhere?) of the 'Duncan and Brady' opener. Then spoiled by a zoomed out clip with an old 1997 Bologna tape-over of 'Knockin' on Heaven's Door' (which Bob didn't even play that night!) before closing with a few seconds of instrumental from 'Country Pie'?

31/5/2000 - Ancona - Italian TV News*(2m)
Bob strolling around with his bodyguards and a short clip of the closing instrumental passage (with mouth organ) from 'Drifter's Escape'.
21/1/2001- The Golden Globe Awards - Los Angeles - *****(2m)
Bob picks up a Golden Globe for 'Things Have Changed'. Lookin' good and a short snappy acceptance speech! Well done, Mr Dylan. The award was presented by Phil Collins and Monica. Bob was followed on stage by Julia Roberts who gave him a nice mention too. Bob was also shown during Tom Hanks' speech when he mentioned Dyan after mentioning Al Pacino, who had just given his own speech.
25/3/2001- The Academy Awards - via Satellite from Sydney, Australia*****(4m)
Bob follows up the Golden globe with an Oscar. Great live performance of the song from Sydney and a nice acceptance speech. Lovely stuff, shot it in the same studios where he taped the 'Don Lane Show' back in '66.

25/3/2001- Oscars - additional news coverage - Australian TV News***(4m)
Dropped into a tongue-in-cheek news story about security for the Oscars broadcast are a couple of short clips of the rehearsal and acceptance from a local TV news camera.
12/5/2001- Trinidad vs. Joppy - TV News - *(?)
Dylan watches the Felix Trinidad-William Joppy WBA Middleweight Championship bout at Madison Square Garden. He can be spotted in the distance briefly during the final seconds. The photo left is from the press coverage, not TV.
24/6/2001- Trondheim NRK-TV News*(18m)
One of those short, distant clips (of I'll Be Your Baby Tonight) from a news camera in the audience at the Trondheim show. These news clips seem to be a regular feature of Bob's european festival gigs.
28/8/2001- 'Love & Theft' TV advertisement - ***(1m)
"Set to the music of `Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum' the lead-off track of Love And Theft, the commercial depicts a poker game in which a mysterious cast of characters -- including those played by Bob Dylan and legendary card master Ricky Jay -- plot and scheme their way through a crucial hand. Lust corrupts, tempers rage and chips fly in the fast-paced spot lensed by award-winning commercial director Kinka Usher."

11 September 2001- Release of 39th Album, Love and Theft
Autumn 2001- Chicago Interview (1m)
Chicago TV did a Staples' doucmentary which Included two snippets of Bob, taken from an interview he did when in Chicago. He's sitting in front of a window in his hotel room, in his usual concert dress, including black
stetson. The two quotes go like this:
"Pop's tremelo sound not only was...made the listener tremble and shake, while others' tremelo sounds didn't quite achieve that. But Pop made you feel the trembling that was inside you, inside yourself." and later "There was no telling which way they were going to go. They were completely unpredictable. Every song was different..." He was obviously cut off mid stream, so there's probably more of this on video tape somewhere in Chicago if anyone has any connections there.

Bob Dylan performs "Cry A While" during the 44th annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles and picked up an award for best Contemporary Folk album for 'Love and Theft'.
