Tsai placed 9th in 2002 for What Time Is It There?.
All the actors are new save for Downey, who tragically just misses what would have been his third consecutive year as a nominee—he finished 3rd last year for A Scanner Darkly and 3rd in the lead category two years ago for Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. He also placed 10th in 1998 (lead) for Two Girls and a Guy.
Tarantino's previous Screenplay nods: 13th in 1997 for Jackie Brown, 2nd in 2003 for Kill Bill Vol. 1, and 8th in 2004 for Kill Bill Vol. 2.
