[NOTE: Though not shown in the YouTube clip above, I included points allotted specifically to the elevator descent that precedes the carnage.]
This is Haneke's sixth appearance in Best Director. (Only Soderbergh and the Coens have more, seven and eight respectively.) He previously placed 13th for Funny Games (1998), 12th for Code Unknown (2001), 14th for The Piano Teacher (2002), 2nd for Caché (Hidden) (2005), and 18th for the Funny Games remake (2008). We did not care for The White Ribbon. (Good job us.)
Ms. Lawrence won Actress two years ago for Winter's Bone. McConaughey gets his second nod this year, having already placed 12th in the same category for Bernie. Lindhardt and MacLaine are new.
Carax's screenplay for Pola X did not place, and he likewise got no love for writing a third of Tokyo!
Nominee post will be up sometime this afternoon.
