Bellocchio's first appearance.
Huppert ties Julianne Moore and Nicole Kidman as the second-most-honored actor in Skandie history, with nine appearances in the top 20. In chronological order:
#15, La Cérémonie (1996)
#8, The School of Flesh (1999)
#2, The Piano Teacher (2002)
#2s, 8 Women (2002)

#13s, I ♥ Huckabees (2004)
#4, Gabrielle (2006)
#19, Home (2009)
Fassbender gets his third nod in the past two years, having placed twice in 2009: 5th in the lead category for Hunger, 14th in Supporting for Inglourious Basterds. De Lencquesaing and De la Huerta (if I'm getting those surnames right) are new.
The Ghost Writer is Harris' first screenplay (though he's had other novels adapted), and Polanski's screenplay for The Ninth Gate failed to make the cut (his other recent films were written by others).
