WARNING: Graphic violence.
House of Pleasures is Bonello's first Skandie-eligible film.
In addition to her Red Balloon "nomination" (see below), Binoche has previously placed 6th in Supporting for The English Patient (1996), 13th in Supporting for Code Unknown (2001), 11th for Caché (Hidden) (2005), and 13th in Supporting again for Summer Hours (2009). In addition to his two previous "nominations" (for Twelve Monkeys and Burn After Reading, see below), Pitt has also finished at #10 (Fight Club, 1999) and #10s (Inglourious Basterds, 2009). And Fanning has now placed in Supporting three years in a row, having landed at #17 two years ago for Phoebe in Wonderland and at #8 last year for Somewhere.
Kiarostami's screenplays for Taste of Cherry and The Wind Will Carry Us didn't place. But he did finish 12th for writing Panahi's Crimson Gold (2004).
Also, yes, the gap between #4 and #3 in Screenplay was more than 100 points. There's also more than 100 points separating #3 from #2. And more than 100 points separating #2 from #1. Too lazy to confirm that that's unprecedented, but it must be.
