First half already on YouTube? Close enough.
Reichardt finished 14th in 2006 for Old Joy.
Clooney makes his seventh appearance in the top 20, having previously placed 15th for Out of Sight (1998), 5th for O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000), 8th for Intolerable Cruelty (2003), 10th for Michael Clayton (2007), 18th (in Supporting) for Burn After Reading (2008), and 13th for Up in the Air (2009). (We didn't love his Oscar-winning performance in Syriana, however.) Greenwood has two prior Supporting nods, at #3 (The Sweet Hereafter, 1997) and #10 (Thirteen Days, 2000). The women are new.
House of Pleasures is Bonello's first Skandie-eligible film.
