This is Herzog's first appearance in the top 20.

Naomi Watts won Best Actress by a landslide in 2001 for Mulholland Dr.; she also placed 12th in 2003 for 21 Grams and 20th in Supporting last year for I ♥ Huckabees. It's the fourth appearance for Keener as well, who also placed 7th once in the lead category (Lovely and Amazing, 2002); her previous supporting nods were for Your Friends & Neighbors in 1998 (10th) and Being John Malkovich in 1999 (2nd). Howard and Gyllenhaal are new.

While Haneke has made the Director list multiple times, his sole previous writing citation was for The Piano Teacher (#19, 2002).
