Couldn't get QuickTime to open the standard-def file I downloaded, and I own it on Blu-ray, so you'll have to settle for the excerpt included in this YouTube compilation (starting at about 4:45 until the end).


Soderbergh makes his fifth appearance overall but his first in 10 years, despite having made a film per year over that period. He previously won for Out of Sight (1998) and placed 11th for The Limey (1999), 2nd for Traffic (2000), 15th for Erin Brockovich (also 2000), and 20th for Ocean's Eleven (2001).

Fiennes also gets a fifth career nod, having finished at #2 for The English Patient (1996), #19 for Oscar and Lucinda (1997), #19 again for The End of the Affair (1999), and most recently #12 in Supporting for In Bruges (2008). Oswalt placed 14th in the lead category for Big Fan two years ago. Both women are new.

July's screenplay for Me and You and Everyone We Know (2005) fared slightly better, placing 11th.

I just now noticed the irony of this Picture/Director combo.
