[Only the enormous black bar for Borat makes this funny to me.]
This is Greengrass' first appearance in the top 20.
Both Streep and Baron Cohen have already been outlined, as this is the second citation this year for each. (As I said, it's Streep's third "nomination.") Downey, like Gordon-Levitt, makes it two in a row, having placed at #3 in the lead category last year for Kiss Kiss Bang Bang; he was also #10 in 1998 for Two Girls and a Guy. Cruz is new.
Brick is Johnson's first screenplay.
