Kaufman, a three-time (at least) Skandie winner for Screenplay, gets a nod for his directorial debut.
Winslet makes her 9th appearance in the top 20, placing her second behind Philip Seymour Hoffman on the all-time list. (She'd been tied with Nicole Kidman at eight.) Her roster:
3. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)
8. Titanic (1997)
9. Jude (1996)
10s. Quills (2000)
10. Revolutionary Road (2008)
12. Little Children (2006)
13. Holy Smoke (1999)
16s. Hamlet (1996)
17. Hideous Kinky (1999)
Brolin gets two nods for the second consecutive year; check yesterday's post for the other details. Brand and Hall are new—and, memo to the AVB, Hall was unquestionably one of the leads in that film, her billing notwithstanding.
Screenplaywise, the Woodman previously placed 20th for Deconstructing Harry (1997) and 5th for Match Point (2005).
