Haynes finished 2nd in 2002 for Far From Heaven (and was a 1995 nominee for Safe).
Former Best Actress winner Ricci (Buffalo '66, 1998) makes her fifth appearance, having also finished 2nd in Supporting for The Ice Storm (1997), 3rd in 1998 for The Opposite of Sex (1998), and 17th in Supporting for Monster (2003). All of the other actors (and Gilroy) are new, even though Affleck was equally awesome last year in Lonesome Jim, which almost nobody saw.
