Skandies: #3

Picture: Boyhood (270/22)
Director: Richard Linklater, Boyhood (253/22)
Actress: Essie Davis, The Babadook (293/20)
Actor: Joaquin Phoenix, Inherent Vice (219/17)
S. Actor: Edward Norton, Birdman, or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) (228/17)
S. Actress: Elisabeth Moss, Listen Up Philip (215/17)
Screenplay: Paul Thomas Anderson, Inherent Vice (187/15)

In addition to his "nomination" for Before Sunset (see post below), Linklater has also placed 18th for Waking Life (2001), 13th for The School of Rock (2003), 19th for A Scanner Darkly (2006), 20th for Bernie (2012), and 8th for Before Midnight (last year).

Phoenix has now placed eight times, tying him for second (with Edward Norton) among the guys on the all-time leaderboard. In addition to multiple previously cited top-five finishes and his 10th-place finish this year for The Immigrant, he placed 9th in Supporting for Gladiator (2000), 10th for Walk the Line (2005), and 11th for I'm Still Here (2010).

Norton has now placed nine times, and I'll just cut and paste the roster since I just put it together due to his having vaulted to #5 on all the all-time list (behind Philip Seymour Hoffman [15], Tilda Swinton [12], Isabelle Huppert [12], and Julianne Moore [10]).

1s. The People vs. Larry Flynt
2s. Primal Fear
3s. Birdman, or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)
4. Fight Club
6. 25th Hour
9. American History X
10. Down in the Valley
13s. Rounders
14s. Moonrise Kingdom

Both women are new.

PTA won Best Screenplay for There Will Be Blood in 2007. The Master (2012) finished 4th. His scripts for Boogie Nights (1997) and Magnolia (1999) both placed 11th. Punch-Drunk Love only managed 15th. Hard Eight is his sole film that didn't place at all.

Guess I was way off on Boyhood's broad support. Is Under the Skin really gonna smoke the competition, as it currently looks?

I would love to see a Wes Anderson win here. I liked UNDER THE SKIN but it didn't crack my top 10 (3rd best ScarJo movie this year actually).

Mainly, though, at this point I'm just pulling for Brolin. #TeamVice
