[Wrong aspect ratio again, but as I said, I take 'em whenever I can find 'em.]
Dominik failed to make the cut for Chopper. (Bad job voters.)
Mortensen scores his second nomination in three years, having finished 2nd in 2005 for his last collaboration with Cronenberg, A History of Violence. Also two for two, nomination-wise, is Zahn, who makes his first top 20 appearance since taking 3rd for Out of Sight back in 1998. Macdonald finished 11th in 2001 for Gosford Park. Williams is new.
Affleck's Oscar-winning script for Good Will Hunting squeaked in at #17 ten years ago.
