[Sorry, I still think this scene is pretty dumb. Let's see, I am in a magical realm being guarded by some creepy looking nonhuman thing that luckily seems to be asleep. The faun told me not to eat or drink anything ("Your life depends on it"); the book reminded me not to eat or drink anything two seconds before I stepped inside; and the moment I picked up a grape from the table I had a face full of fairies warning me to put it the fuck down already. But what the hell.]
This is Del Toro's first Director nod.
Dench previously placed 5th for Mrs Brown (1997) and 9th in Supporting for Shakespeare in Love (1998). Verdú landed at #10 in the lead category in 2002 for Y tu mamá también. Oldham and Mackie are new.
Frank Cottrell Boyce finished 14th in 2002 for 24 Hour Party People.
