[Hooray, it's already on YouTube #3 in a row! (Though apparently from a Russian DVD.)]
Resnais placed 18th in 2007 for Private Fears in Public Places. (His only other eligible film in the Skandie era was Same Old Song, which few saw at the time.)
All of DiCaprio's appearances to date have been in Scorsese films: 9th for The Aviator (2004) and 2nd for The Departed (2006). Ruffalo won Best Actor ten years ago for You Can Count on Me and has two previous Supporting nods: 19th for 13 Going on 30 (2004) and 12th for Zodiac (2007). Fanning placed 17th in the lead category last year for the little-seen Phoebe in Wonderland. Steinfeld is obviously new.
Assayas finished at #6 in Screenplay last year for Summer Hours, and also at #6 in 1997 for Irma Vep. We did not recognize Franck for his screenplay for Amos Gitaï's One Day You'll Understand.
