Skandies: #13

Picture: Saint Laurent (69/5)
Director: Lisandro Alonso, Jauja (59/7)
Actress: Juliette Binoche, Clouds of Sils Maria (77/11)
Actor: Tom Hanks, Bridge of Spies (84/10)
S. Actor: Joel Potrykus, Buzzard (65/7)
S. Actress: Jessica Chastain, Crimson Peak (72/9)
Screenplay: Nick Hornby, Brooklyn (78/8)
Scene: Hotel sex, Anomalisa (50/6)

Zero chance of finding that scene on the Internet (at least right now).


This is Alonso's first appearance. 

Binoche gets her eighth career Skandies nod (and her third specifically at #13). The breakdown:

3. Certified Copy (2011)

5. Flight of the Red Balloon (2008)
6s. The English Patient (1996)
11. Caché (Hidden) (2005)
13s. Code Unknown (2001)
13s. Summer Hours (2009)

17. Camille Claudel 1915 (2013)

Hanks, whose glory days were mostly pre-Skandies, has now made the roster five times; he previously placed 20th in 1998 for Saving Private Ryan, 6th in 2000 for Cast Away, 14th in 2004 for The Ladykillers, and 6th again two years ago for Captain Phillips. Chastain came in at both #7 and #8 in Supporting in 2011 (for Take Shelter and The Tree of Life, respectively), and placed 5th in the lead category the following year for Zero Dark Thirty. Potrykus is new.

Hornby, I had forgotten, didn't actually write the adaptations of High Fidelity and About a Boy. His only previous screenplay that might conceivably have made the cut—but did not—was for An Education.
