Since the first Lord of the Rings movie was released in 2001, New Zealand has become affectionately known as Middle Earth. The Lord of the Rings trilogy was nominated for 17 Oscars. Despite the fact that many of the movie sets have been dismantled, (excluding Hobbiton) Lord of the Rings fans will recognize many of the backdrops and movie sets as seen in these films.
