This film received an Oscar nomination for "Best Adapted Screenplay," even though the film is not actually an adaptation of "The Orchid Thief", but rather a fictionalized account of an attempt to adapt the book into film.
The credits include Donald Kaufman as the co-writer. He is also featured as a character in the movie, and the movie is dedicated "In loving memory" of Donald at the end of the credits. But Donald is just a fictional character himself. Donald Kaufman was nominated for a Golden Globe with Charlie, despite being a fictional character. They were also both nominated for an Academy Award and the Academy made it known that, in the event of a victory, the two brothers would have to share one statue.
In one scene, Charlie comes home and checks his mail. He is in front of a mirror, and Donald is talking to him behind him. The reflection of Donald in the mirror is actually the real Charlie Kaufman. Weezer recorded an acoustic version of "Happy Together" to be included in the film. However, Spike Jonze felt the original version by The Turtles was a better fit for the film.
To portray John Laroche, Chris Cooper grew out his hair, shed weight and used a prosthesis to create the illusion of a toothless mouth. Director Spike Jonze granted Cooper's request for numerous takes so he could find the right tone for the eccentric character. Susan Orlean was supposed to be in the film as one of two women that Charlie thinks are making fun of him in a supermarket, but this scene was cut before the film made it to theaters.
Donald suggests "Flowers for Algernon" as an example of a movie about flowers, to which Charlie replies, "It's not about flowers; besides it's not a movie. There is a hidden link in the DVD main page.

Nicolas Cage 's brother, New York radio personality Marc Coppola , often stood in for one of the Kaufman brothers during the shooting of the movie. The flower shown during the time-lapse sequence at the end of the movie is called Amelia an Osteospermum.
Nicolas Cage has said that during the filming of this movie, he ignored all of his acting instincts and played the part of Charlie Kaufman exactly as director Spike Jonze asked him to. He then received an Academy Award nomination for it. Nicolas Cage was given completely separate credits for Charlie and Donald Kaufman. The credits were given in order of appearance and each of Cage's credits appeared in the order that Charlie and Donald appeared.

The first draft of the screenplay included suggested actors for various roles:. Champ Kind: John C. Brick Tamland: Chris Parnell. Brian Fantana: Ben Stiller. Ed Harken: Ed Harris. Garth Holiday: Dan Aykroyd. Frank Vitchard: Alec Baldwin. The script also specified another member of the news team, Marshall Connors, with William H. Macy suggested for the part. The Mexican restaurant Veronica visits with the girls from the station is named "Escupimos en su Alimento".
In Spanish, that means, "We spit in your food". Ron Burgundy's dog is named Baxter. The mother Kodiak bear at the zoo says that Apatow-jo, the bear that Baxter befriended, was her cousin.
Judd Apatow is the film's producer. The bear's name is Katow-jo, not Apatow-jo. The deleted scene where Ron Burgundy gets smashed in the face by the filing cabinet and proceeds to tell everyone of his dilemma is a subtle reference to his character Mustafa in Austin Powers, who did something similar when he was injured.
A good portion of scenes from the trailers are completely omitted from the film's final cut. These scenes include Burgundy taking a bullet for Veronica and a later shot of him and her emerging from a TV van to a cheering crowd with Burgundy visibly showing a bandaged wound.

In the night club, Ron plays jazz flute in the style of Ian Anderson , lead singer and flautist of Jethro Tull. Ron blurts out "Hey Aqualung! In addition, the riff that he plays on the flute just before he does so is the main riff of the same song.
Indeed, the scene is rife with Tull references, as the pose Ron strikes at the end of the song is also a clear imitation of the band's logo of a flautist turned sideways with one leg up. The bass player at the Spanish restaurant where Ron plays the flute is Jerry Minor , a sketch comedian with whom Ferrell worked for a season on "Saturday Night Live" Director Adam McKay was supposed to have a small cameo as a network producer named Aaron Zimmerman who acted much like Robert Evans but the idea was cut midway through production.

Morricone wrote the score for the Mafia television series La piovra seasons 2 to 10 from to , including the themes "Droga e sangue" "Drugs and Blood" , "La Morale", and "L'Immorale".

In , the composer recorded music for a Lancia commercial, featuring Richard Gere and directed by Harald Zwart known for directing The Pink Panther 2.

He wrote the score for Christian Carion's En mai, fais ce qu'il te plait and the most recent movie by Tornatore: The Correspondence , featuring Jeremy Irons and Olga Kurylenko. Before receiving his diplomas in trumpet, composition and instrumentation from the conservatory, Morricone was already active as a trumpet player, often performing in an orchestra that specialised in music written for films.
After completing his education at Saint Cecilia , the composer honed his orchestration skills as an arranger for Italian radio and television. In order to support himself, he moved to RCA in the early sixties and entered the front ranks of the Italian recording industry. During the existence of the group until , Morricone performed several times with the group as trumpet player.
To ready his music for live performance, he joined smaller pieces of music together into longer suites. Rather than single pieces, which would require the audience to applaud every few minutes, Morricone thought the best idea was to create a series of suites lasting from 15 to 20 minutes, which form a sort of symphony in various movements — alternating successful pieces with personal favourites.
In concert, Morricone normally had to musicians and vocalists under his baton, performing multiple genre-crossing collections of music. Rock, symphonic and ethnic instruments share the stage. He performed some of his best-known compositions such as Metti, una sera a cena , Novecento and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. It was the very first time that the score was performed live in Europe. The second part of the evening consisted of an anthology of the composer's work.

A Los Angeles Times review bemoaned the poor acoustics and opined of Morricone: "His stick technique is adequate, but his charisma as a conductor is zero.
On 22 December Morricone conducted the piece Belgian orchestra "Orkest der Lage Landen" and a piece choir during a two-hour concert in the Sportpaleis in Antwerp. Morricone postponed the rest of his world tour. In November Morricone stated that he would resume his European tour starting from February On 13 October , Morricone married Maria Travia, whom he had met in Travia wrote lyrics to complement her husband's pieces. Her works include the Latin texts for The Mission. They had three sons and a daughter: Marco , Alessandra , the conductor and film composer Andrea , and Giovanni Morricone , a filmmaker, who lives in New York City.
Morricone lived in Italy his entire life and never desired to live in Hollywood. The New York Times Magazine listed him among hundreds of artists whose material was reportedly destroyed in the Universal fire.
Morricone described himself as a Christian leftist ,  stating that he voted for the Christian Democracy DC for more than 40 years  and then, after its dissolution in , he approached the centre-left coalition. Morricone loved chess ,  having learned the game when he was Before his musical career took off, he played in club tournaments in Rome in the mids. His first official tournament was in , where he won a prize in the third category for amateurs.
Soon he got too busy for chess, but he would always keep a keen interest in the game. It is not clear how strong Morricone was as a player. His Elo rating  was estimated to be He did hold GM Boris Spassky  to a draw once in a simultaneous competition.
Morricone was the last player standing in that game, and Spassky had to concede the half point. But a great chessplayer, one of those about whom history is written; like Fischer, Karpov, Kasparov and many GMs of the past. It is just a dream; one that arrives, on time, when I lose a game.
