HISTORY:

The Dardennes previously placed 15th for La Promesse (1997), 5th for both The Son (2003) and L'Enfant (The Child) (2006), 11th for Lorna's Silence (2009), and 13th for The Kid With a Bike (2012).

Julianne Moore, who'd been absent from the Skandies for four years, moves back into 4th place on the all-time list with ten career nods, not even counting her Best Actress win for Safe in the survey's Oscar-style inaugural year. The roll call:

1. Far From Heaven (2002)
3s. Boogie Nights (1997)
6. Still Alice (2014)
8s. Magnolia (1999)
11. The End of the Affair (1999)
13s. The Big Lebowski (1998)
15s. An Ideal Husband (1999)
16s. A Single Man (2009)
19. Savage Grace (2008)

19. The Kids Are All Right (2010)

Hardy previously placed 10th for Bronson in 2009 and 20th for Warrior in 2011. d'Assumçao (who played the fat platonic friend, I reassured myself by confirming, not the mustachioed killer) and Waterston are new, as is Byrkit.

Check back later today (around 3pm Eastern time) for the annual list of fake "nominees."

Great poster. Made me go back to all the other posts as well to see if I missed any. That said, I'm kind of surprised that FORCE MAJEURE placed so highly given that THE LONELIEST PLANET topped out at #8 in 2012.

EDIT: OK. So now I feel kind of dumb, but scrap that comment about the poster. I thought it was a joke, and not an actual title that was used for distribution.
