Docter failed to place in 2001 for Monsters, Inc.
Of the actors, only Mackie, who finished 6th in the same category three years ago for Half Nelson, has previously placed. (That's a lot of years of ignoring Colin Firth, but after looking at his filmography I can't say we overlooked anything.)
Peterson co-wrote the script for Finding Nemo, which finished 11th in 2003. Docter has a lot of story credits (including Toy Story 2), but Up was his first actual screenplay.
