[I included votes for "the ceasefire" here after rewatching the scene, since it's clearly contiguous—hence the confusion in the Scene category earlier. But this clip stops at the end of the wanky follow-that-actor! shot.]
Cuarón placed 4th in 2002 for Y tu mamá también. This is his second "nomination."
DiCaprio finished 9th in 2004 for The Aviator. Nolte scores his second "nomination," having previously landed at #3 in the lead category for Affliction (1998); he also placed 8th in Supporting the same year for The Thin Red Line, and came in 11th (lead) for The Good Thief in 2003. Mol and Gheorghiu are new.
Monahan's Kingdom of Heaven script didn't make the cut, although few saw the reportedly superior extended version.
