The 54th Bodil Awards were held on 4 March 2001 in the Imperial Cinema in Copenhagen, Denmark, honouring the best national and foreign films of 2000. Peter Mygind and Birgitte Raaberg hosted the event which was broadcast live on DR2.[1]

The Bench won both the awards for Best Film and Best Actor in a leading and supporting role (Jesper Christensen and Nikolaj Kopernikus). The award for Best Actress in a Leading Role went to Björk (Dancer in the Dark) while the Best Actress in a Supporting Role award went to Lene Tiemroth for her performance in Italian For Beginners, the film which had come to the ceremony with most nominations. The only Danish award which did not go to a Zentropa production was the award for Best Cinematographer which went to Eric Kress for his work both on A Place Nearby, Flickering Lights and Miracle.[1]

American Beauty earned the award for Best American Film while the award for Best Non-American Film went to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

Producers Ib Tardini and Vibeke Windeløv together with managing director Peter Aalbæk Jensen received a Bodil Honorary Award for their work in Zentropa.[1]
