All veterans today.
As a director, Nolan previously placed 5th for Memento (2001), 4th for The Prestige (2006), and 7th for The Dark Knight (2008). As a screenwriter, he won outright for both Memento and The Prestige, and placed "only" 3rd for The Dark Knight.
Kazan finished 12th last year in Supporting for Me and Orson Welles. Carrey gets his fourth nod, and his first in six years, having placed 17th in 1998 for The Truman Show, 6th in 1999 for Man on the Moon, and 4th in 2004 for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Rush, who we completely ignored for both Shine and Shakespeare in Love (good job us), did manage to squeak in at #20 in the lead category for Quills (2000) and at #18 in Supporting for Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003). And Leo placed 18th in the same category for 21 Grams (2003), as well as 14th in the lead category for Frozen River (2008).
