Apichatpong "Joe" Weerasethakul finished 14th last year for Blissfully Yours.

In addition to her previous appearance this year for Gilles' Wife, Devos placed 12th in 2002 for Read My Lips. (I somehow neglected to note this at the time.) Bale was covered when he placed for Batman Begins. Yuen is new. And with this nod, Philip Seymour Hoffman becomes the first actor to hit the top 20 eight times, regaining his spot as the most honored thesp in Skandie history. His previous citations (all in Supporting except for Mahowny):

1998: #15, Happiness
1999: #6, The Talented Mr. Ripley
1999: #10, Magnolia
2000: #6, Almost Famous
2000: #12, State and Main
2002: #10, 25th Hour
2003: #15, Owning Mahowny [lead]

Woody Allen previously placed 20th for his screenplay for Deconstructing Harry in 1997.
