Mr. G. Iñárritu makes his first Skandies appearance, despite having been definitively declared a fraud by Scott Tobias.
Fanning lands in the top 20 for the second time, nearly a decade after placing 20th in Supporting for War of the Worlds. (She still trails her sister Elle, who's made the cut three times, including one "nomination.") Lithgow is new, surprisingly (though not if you actually look at his filmography since 1996), as are Ivgy and Rongione.
Chandor placed 20th for Margin Call in 2011 and 14th last year for All Is Lost. He is now 3-for-3 in this category.
