Skandies: #8

Picture: The Hateful Eight (88/8) [really]
Director: Hou Hsiao-hsien, The Assassin (98/9)
Actress: Saoirse Ronan, Brooklyn (143/9)
Actor: Tom Courtenay, 45 Years (128/13)
S. Actor: Liev Schreiber, Spotlight (88/8)
S. Actress: Mya Taylor, Tangerine (105/11)
Screenplay: Andrew Haigh, 45 Years (116/11)
Scene: Bathroom fantasy, James White (67/6)

[Couldn't find even a clip from this scene online, to my surprise.]


Hou gets his highest finish to date. He previously placed 20th for Millennium Mambo (2003), 10th for Three Times (2006), and 11th for Flight of the Red Balloon (2008). 

Ronan just misses matching her personal best—she finished at #7 in Supporting for Atonement (2003), and has also placed in the lead category at #14 (The Lovely Bones, 2009) and #17 (Hanna, 2011). Schreiber's only previous appearance was for The Manchurian Candidate (2004), for which he placed 16th in Supporting. Taylor is new, and so is Courtenay, despite being quite old.

Haigh's screenplay for Weekend placed 17th in 2011.

Comment on Tarantino's history?

I don't understand the question. Tarantino's history (in Director) was just posted yesterday at #9, where he placed this year. If you're wondering how his previous films have placed in Picture, that info will be in the giant wrap post, or you can just check skandies.org.

I'm glad you couldn't find the scene to post. If I watched it again, my keyboard would short-circuit from the buckets of tears that would drown it.
