Skandies: #4


Picture: Two Days, One Night (225/16)
Director: Paul Thomas Anderson, Inherent Vice (168/15)
Actress: Marion Cotillard, The Immigrant (171/16)
Actor: David Oyelowo, Selma (172/20)
S. Actor: Ethan Hawke, Boyhood (198/20)
S. Actress: Tilda Swinton, Snowpiercer (212/15)
Screenplay: Ruben Östlund, Force Majeure (166/15)
Scene: The beach, Under the Skin (96/8)

The usual no-embed deal.

(Yes, 4 out of 7 scenes in the top ten so far have been from Under the Skin. This is the last one, however. Also, yes, that was a 100-point jump between #4 and #5 in Best Picture.)

HISTORY:

In addition to the three previous times PTA has been "nominated" (see post below), he's also placed 7th for Boogie Nights (1997) and 8th for Punch-Drunk Love (2002).

Ah, Ms. Swinton. Tied with Isabelle Huppert for 2nd place in the all-time ranking, with 12 appearances in the top 20. The roster:

1. Julia (2009)
4s. Michael Clayton (2007)
4s. Snowpiercer (2014)
5. The Deep End (2001)
5. We Need to Talk About Kevin (2011)
7. Only Lovers Left Alive (2014)
9s. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005)
11. I Am Love (2010)
12s. Burn After Reading (2008)
13s. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008)
18. Female Perversions (1997)
19s. Thumbsucker (2005)

Cotillard will be coming up again soon, so I'll deal with her then. Hawke, who should never work with anyone except Linklater, placed 8th (in the lead category) for Before Sunset (2004) and 10th (same) for Before Midnight (2013). Oyelowo is new.

Force Majeure, as previously noted, is Östlund's first Skandie-eligible film.
