Scene: Death on Hollywood Blvd., Inland Empire (43/4)
Undistributed 2004: Los Muertos (Lisandro Alonso) (29/4)
[Since David Lynch has apparently managed to prevent any pirated copies of Inland Empire from making their way onto the web—at least that I could locate—here's the closest equivalent—the Skandies' #2 Scene from 2001.]
Altman's career Skandie high was his 7th-place finish for The Company in 2003. He also placed 11th two years earlier for Gosford Park.
Gyllenhaal had previously finished 3rd (should have been two notches higher) in the 2002 Actress race, for Secretary. Remarkably, this is Damon's first citation since 1999, when he placed 9th for The Talented Mr. Ripley; he also came in 20th in 1997 for Good Will Hunting. Reilly has turned up in Supporting three times before: #8 for Boogie Nights (1997), #2 for Magnolia (1999), and #20 for Chicago (2002).
Greengrass's Bloody Sunday screenplay didn't make the cut.
