Skandies: #5

Picture: Stranger by the Lake (123/11)
Director: Jennifer Kent, The Babadook (137/13)
Actress: Rosamund Pike, Gone Girl (145/14)
Actor: Haluk Bilginer, Winter Sleep (171/11)
S. Actor: Mark Ruffalo, Foxcatcher (187/16)
S. Actress: Agata Kulesza, Ida (200/17)
Screenplay: Richard Linklater, Boyhood (139/13)
Scene: Victim meets victim (black goo 2), Under the Skin (71/6)

The usual no-embed deal.


The Babadook is Kent's first feature.

In addition to winning Best Actor in 2000 for You Can Count on Me, Ruffalo has placed on five other occasions, all in Supporting: 19th for 13 Going on 30 (2004), 12th for Zodiac (2007), 6th for The Kids Are All Right (2010), 8th for Shutter Island (also 2010), and 19th again for Margaret (2011). All of the other actors are new, though that's not my fault since Pike was one of my top picks for Supporting Actress in 2009 (for An Education).

Linklater's screenplay recognition for the three Before films is noted below in the "nomination" rundown. He also placed 9th for A Scanner Darkly (2006) and 19th for Bernie (2012, written with Skip Hollandsworth).

Pretty close, Anonymous Person Who Is Clearly A Member Of The AVB And Voted For Most If Not Of All Of These Scenes And Saw Their Titles Changed On His/Her/Probably His Ballot.

That may be how it shakes out (although I'm thinking the scene where Patricia Arquette breaks down while her son packs for college could contend here as well), but I'd be stoked as hell if something like "Time in a Bottle" from X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST made the cut. Not that it will.

Also, what if I am a robot?
