This is Villeneuve's first appearance (because all of his previous movies stunk).
In addition to her many "nominations" (see post below), Blanchett has placed 16th for Oscar and Lucinda (1997), 11th for Heaven (2002), and 17th in Supporting for Notes From a Scandal (2006). In addition to his several nominations (see same post below), Fassbender has previously placed three times in Supporting: 14th in 2009 for Inglourious Basterds, 12th in 2010 for Fish Tank, and 16th last year for Frank. Jenkins landed at #16 in the lead category for The Visitor (2008), his sole previous nod. Ferguson is new.
Docter helped conceive the story for several beloved Pixar films (Toy Story 2; Monsters, Inc.; WALL•E), but his only previous actual screenplay credit is for Up, which placed 7th in 2009. LeFauve and Cooley have no previous credits.
