[Yes, it's the actual scene. Here's the other one, ICYMI.]
Anderson makes his fifth appearance in Director (out of seven films) and manages his best finish yet, having previously placed 5th for Rushmore (1998), 6th for The Royal Tenenbaums (2001), 15th for The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou (2004), and 4th for Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009).
Phoenix, in addition to his 2009 Actor win for Two Lovers, came in at #9 in Supporting for Gladiator (2000), #10 in Actor for Walk the Line (2005), and #11 in Actor for I'm Still Here (2010). McConaughey gets his third nod in the same category this year (see #6 and #12), which as I noted elsewhere is almost certainly a record. Both women are new.
Johnson also placed 3rd for writing Brick (2006), as well as 9th for The Brothers Bloom (2009). But I've been pushing him to make a really small, personal, intimate film that will surely miss our top ten.
