Annual Fee counts towards bonus spend requirements?

I'd presume it doesn't, but just want to clarify. Also apologies for probably reasking a question, but I'm drawing blanks trying to search for the answer

No, fees are not "spend".

Are points awarded for fees (i.e. $550 USD is 550 MR points)?

Keep in mind that Amex doesn't use the term "spend". It uses the term "purchases". If you think about that, that should pre-answer almost all of your questions. A fee from the bank obviously isn't a purchase. (A fee that's tacked onto an airline ticket is a purchase.)
