Just a snippet.
First time for Almereyda.
All the actors are new save for Posey, who gets her 6th career nod. She previously placed 15th for The House of Yes (1997), 6th in Supporting for Clockwatchers (1998), 15th in Supporting for Henry Fool (also 1998), and both 17th and 19th in 2007 for Fay Grim and Broken English, respectively.
Lapid's only previous feature, Policeman, was ineligible for the Skandies proper due to missing the two-year eligibility window, as Michael Sicinski pointed out in the comments.
