HISTORY:Cronenberg previously placed 14th for Crash (1997) and 3rd for A History of Violence (2005).
Neeson, incredibly, makes his first appearance in the top 20 since 1996, when he placed 13th for Michael Collins. (His only big awards role during that period was Kinsey, but still. We have a top 20.) McDormand gets her seventh nod and her second this year; see #19 for details. Carano and Hiddleston are new.
None of Anatolia's three writers (who also collaborated on Three Monkeys) have ever placed before in this category.
