Best I can do is a NYT clip in which Coogler provides commentary on top of the first three minutes.


HISTORY:

Haynes came in 2nd for Far From Heaven (2002) as well, losing that year to Spike Lee. He also placed 7th for I'm Not There (2007).

Del Toro is a previous Skandie winner in Supporting (for Traffic, 2000); he's also placed in that category at #10 (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, 1998) and #13 (21 Grams, 2003), and squeaked into the lead category at #19 for Che (2008). Hoss' performance in Petzold's previous film, Barbara (2012), landed her at #10. (Note that only three points separate her and Mara; Actress was by far the closest race this year.) Leigh's history can be found below at #6. Lucas is new.

Assayas' screenplays for Irma Vep (1997) and Summer Hours (2009) both placed at #6. He also placed 8th in this category for Carlos: A Movie That Creepy Greek Somehow Still Hasn't Seen (2010, co-written with Dan Franck)

Oh, well.

Alas, our combined forces--two 30 point bombs--had absolutely no effect on Carol's ranking.

Maybe my mega-point bomb for Carol in the decade survey will make a difference.
