[You know, I tried watching this again and couldn't even get halfway through it. What is wrong with you people. How could you vote this tedious crap in and fail to pay proper homage to what is easily one of the year's most awesome scenes.]
HISTORY: This is Jia's first citation for Director.
Paltrow makes her sixth appearance in the top 20. The roll call: 19th in Supporting for Hard Eight (1997), 7th in Lead for Shakespeare in Love (1998), 16th in Lead for Shallow Hal (2001), 10th in Supporting for The Royal Tenenbaums (also 2001), and most recently 14th in Lead for Proof (2005). Sagnier previously placed 18th in Supporting for 8 Women (2002) and 14th in Supporting for Swimming Pool (2003). Franco and Mann are new.
Breillat has been cited as a director before (for Fat Girl), but this is her first Screenplay nod.
