[If you want to watch this and haven't seen the film, it'll work better if you know (a) that the two silent adults in the middle of the video are the dead girls' parents, and (b) that the hallway at the end is the hallway where they died (and that shot is in fact the beginning of a shot on which the kid who made the video accidentally captured their deaths).]
Zonca placed 12th in 1999 for The Dreamlife of Angels.
Two previous Skandie winners this week. Julianne Moore makes her eighth appearance (tied for third place)—not even counting her victory for Safe in 1995, the Skandies' inaugural year, which had an Oscar-style methodology.

Clive Owen won Supporting Actor five years ago for Closer and also placed 13th for Croupier (2000), 18th for Children of Men (2006), and 16th in Supporting for Inside Man (also 2006). Olyphant previously finished 6th in the same category for The Girl Next Door (2004). Kim makes her debut.
Reitman placed 10th in 2006 for Thank You for Smoking. There was little love for Sheldon Turner's rewrites of The Longest Yard and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
