Winding Refn makes his first appearance in Director, though he's had a number of eligible films.
In addition to his previous Supporting "nomination" for Revolutionary Road (see below), Shannon has placed twice in the lead category, at #8 (Bug, 2007) and #17 (Shotgun Stories, 2008). Plummer gets his first nod since 1999, when he placed 11th in Supporting for The Insider. The women are new.
As noted below, Lonergan won Screenplay in 2000 for You Can Count on Me. He now becomes the first person ever to amass 500 points and still not win.
